After a warming trend with rain midweek, the weather has turned cold again, new fluffy snow is on the ground, and trail reports from up north are for very good (cross-country) skiing this weekend. The skis are brushed down and ready to load into the car later today for another weekend jaunt to Northern Michigan following a haircut this morning and a few other work-related loose ends.
Blame it on Kirk Douglas, Richard Harris, and the fetching Ulla Jacobsson. 'Live to XC Ski!' as the saying goes on a favorite bumper sticker decal.
