As a winter storm watch just turned into a winter storm warning... sigh.... I'd like to take the time to give a shout out to the river gods:
Thank you, oh great gods, for blessing us with an amazingly awesome season! It's been fantastic... I've had a lot of great river days this year (never enough) and we even got out this weekend, in friggin' freezin' November, in our inadequate cold weather gear, for one more fun run down the river before the snow came.
I'm now ready to endure the winter months, shoveling and blowing snow for days on end, wearing a ten pound coat to keep the cold out, stokin' those hot coals and watchin' the white stuff fall until it melts in the spring and begs me to come back out to play.
Hope everyone else had just as awesome of a season!
Bring on the snow mutha fuckahs!!!!!!!
