As I looked out my window from self-quarantine, I noticed the snow accumulating and realized this might actually be more than just a flurry, and yes, I might even be able to snurf tomorrow. And then it occurred to me that snurfing is probably one of the last sports that folks can do while we all social distance. The ski resorts held out as long as they could and now are all closed for the season. But, that's not to say the snow is over! Anyone lucky enough to be near a hill and still have snow, or receive a few inches like we have, well, what better thing to do than get outside and enjoy. In fact, I may just try and slip away to a ski mountain and poach all that terrain sitting there untouched.
As for the photo of my Trailblazer with the face mask covering PHyrclops, our mascot? First of all, I'm not a hoarder, that's just a cheap workshop mask we use when we handcraft our boards. But, is it sensational, taking advantage of a crisis to sell boards? No, this is just the reality of the situation we are in. And frankly, along with a sense of humor, we all need ways to get outside and get fresh air and if we can help in any way, we've done our job. Fresh air has a new meaning, doesn't it? Every breath of untainted air is precious. Get outside and appreciate it, snurfing or not.
