I really don't know why it keeps missing the valley...Lewis and Clark didn't have this problem.

I love the generosity of Canadians, Alix is willing to give me all her snow...

When I venture outside again, I'm going to remember to take a picture of the piles of snow on my deck. Just for you PF!

Just spotted this and am moved to say there's another sort of hockey. Without skates but played on freezing cold fields by generations of hard-done-by schoolgirls in winter (in Britain anyway). Men play it as well, but not at school. When I was a student there was a men's team and a women's team and the men's team wouldn't accept a challenge to play the women's team because the men said the women were too dangerous!

That would be field hockey, wouldn't it? That's played in Canada too.

Yes, it's field hockey, and it's played in the US, too.
