Outdoors Everyday Challenge Day 23-what if winter's over?

Outdoors Everyday Challenge Day 23-what if winter's over?

Day 23
I know in my heart that every year we get a late snowfall. A couple years ago I took Bobby snowboarding for the first time 2 days before March break started. But what if we don't get another snowfall? I feel I'm not ready. I still have so much winter love left inside of me. Am I going to have to move to North Bay? 
Maybe I will look at some happy summer pictures of my kids. Maybe that will help me appreciate the oncoming spring and get over my loss of a winter that wasn't. 
Now I feel like I'm not being inspiring at all, all this whining about nice weather! WTH. 
Confession time....I didn't go longboarding today, I had a nap, and by the time I went outside, it was too late to do anything fun. So relearning for the 10 billionth time: Getting out the door is the hardest part, and once you get out there, staying out is the very best thing.
Does anyone else face this problem? I need a dog to walk.
Until tomorrow, have an outdoorsy day.

My intention was to get some exercise, which meant covering some distance at a reasonable pace. My intention is important, as it affects many other choices: type of shoes, clothing, walking poles, water, binoculars, camera etc.

 After stopping for the dogs to poop and stopping to change Jett’s diaper (twice) we were off!! We walked through a sunny meadow, climbed up the frozen cascades and returned via a side trail that skirted the riverbank. Bliss.
