NorAms come to The Valley...

Getting ready for the NorAms in Fort Kent:

The stadium is set up just like was for the World Cup last year....minus all the posters, signs and media equipment of course. 

Best range I've shot on all season so far....perfectly straight, perfectly flat. 

Devo kids enjoying their perfect snow conditions during an evening training session...

Night ski at 10th Mountain...

The snow here is awesome and it's continuing to add up. We got 6 inches or so earlier this week and another 5-6 inches today. The trails should be in near perfect condition for tomorrow's sprint race. 

And my latest big craft project:

A duvet cover for Seth at Christmas...

Today's new skill: using a snow blower. I got a lesson from Seth so that when he's gone next week and it snows 2 feet (it probably will just because I'm now in charge of the driveway) I'm not stranded.

Pre-race dinner tonight: Pot roast, potatoes and carrots from the crock pot. 
Tomorrow night: Cheddar potato soup....
So glad to be reunited with my crock pot. It's been far too long!

And finally, tomorrow's forecast. 

Yes, we are supposed to zero (sight in our rifles) at 9 -8 is not legal racing temperature. Yes...that -17 on the right side is the "feels like" temperature. Yes, hopefully they will move zero to 10 am so that we'll get to race at 11 when it's supposed to almost be 0. 

I love winter. I really do.
