It's over for sure. Today was the 12th day in a row I went into my Plastic Cubicle in Dronesville, McCorporate USA. I couldn't even find any eye candy to drool over. I think my brain is getting toasted from all those diet sodas.
The splendid views of the Mass Pike today were drop dead gorgeous.
These are the worst of times.

The warm spell last week put a massive dent in the snowpack. It was a quiet day and Roger joined us in the Bowl. He hiked up the lower Sluice and made some classic turns including some nice double pole plants. I followed afterwards and had enjoyable turns in the leftover old corn, avoiding the crevasses on skiers right in the Bowl. I was surprised later on when I received many compliments for doing turns with style. But then again, I had to make them turns as well as possible in order to fill in the big tracks left behind.
Did a short run in lower Chute with Ranger Jeff and Patroller Jim afterwards, ending the season on a high note with fun turns with friends, they way a season oughtta' end.
It's over. It's sad.
Paddled yesterday and ran the Gap for the first time ever.
Hump Day is in 2 months.
