So it’s been SEVERAL months since my last post. And the ultimate reason is – quite simply – there’s been no weather for skateboarding… none… zero… zilch… nada!
And you’d think that in an area like Vancouver (just north of Seattle for those of you wondering) – an area that’s famous for rain mixed in with even-more-rain – that there would be a TON of places where you could skate indoors, or at least under cover. Yet – the only places I’ve been able to find, are either “imaginary” or have closed down… DANG!
Anyway – it’s been a long winter. We had TONS of snow – which is completely unusual for Vancouver… and *just* as we were starting to realistically hope for spring – it snowed… here… today… in April! WTF?!? At MOST, we generally get two snowfalls a year here – and in general, it snows in the morning, and it’s rained away by the afternoon. And these shenanigans are inevitably done by early February… So snow in April is just plain crazy here…
So suffice it to say, I’m looking forward to some dry weather to start rollin again (we did try riding in the rain… but THAT’s a painful experiment…)
… If anyone has some fun winter skating tales – lemme know!
Lookin forward to getting back into riding again this year!!
