My plans to try park-and-ski commuting have failed on the usual problem: When there's snow there's no place to park. Big G's failed on the fact that he would already have driven much further to get a reasonable ski distance from which to launch that phase, so it seemed kind of silly.
In any case, the places we hoped to hang cars do not get cleared because no one in the normal population uses them in the white months.
The white months themselves seem to be turning gray and brown again. We need a new plan. Probably several plans.
