Global Warming



Global warming? No. Bad timing? Yes.

We went to Yellowstone last weekend for a business meeting I had planned. The park was closed. All the shops were closed. Even the snow was closing up for the year. There was plenty of it - but only in hard-packed icy piles. What was left on the roads was, well...water.

Trying to entertain a preschooler in a town where nothing is open was a bit tough. Toby took him to the one and only open attraction while I was in my meeting. Afterward we drove around trying to find something to do. We ended up at the closed-down-for-the-season airport when suddenly Robbie started yelling he wanted out of the car RIGHT NOW.

Toby, exasperated, put the car in park in the middle of the road. The next car was at least three months away, after all.

It turns out, you don't have to have snow to make a kid happy as long as you're willing to drag a perfectly good sled down an asphalt road and then carve a hole in the ice for him to stand in.
