It’s not uncommon to hole up inside during winter. The days are short, cold, and for us in Georgia, the days are actually, well, pretty mild. As I write this today Tuesday, January 17th 2017, I can’t use the weather as my excuse not to skate. It’s currently 72° and cloudy in beautiful Kennesaw, GA. Admittedly, it’s unseasonably warm. Still, I find myself counting the days until spring. For your information, spring is 61 days, 14 hours, and 9 minutes away. Look at the forecast for the next 10 days. Despite some rain here and there, it’s definitely not too bad, eh?
You’re crazy if you aren’t stoked on this forecast. Time to move the beanies, sweatshirts, and jackets back to storage? Maybe not quite yet…because, out of the 61 “winter” days left, more than likely we’ll experience a couple more cold snaps and inclement weather that may render the streets “un-skateable.” I’m by no means a meteorologist, but I’d guess it’ll be due to negligible amounts of ice or rain. (Knock on wood!)
