Many of the ski areas and resorts report up to a foot of new snow in the past 48 hours, something that they have been waiting for, but now it is too cold to ski. The snomobilers, of course, the "couch athletes" of winter, will be happy to find their favorite wilderness ready for some noise.
Today I feel justified in wearing my "fleece-lined" jeans, which I think are a major improvement over the old "flannel-lined" jeans of decades past. I only have one pair of fleece-lined jeans, as they are pricey, but only get worn a few days of the year. This is one of those days, as I doubt if the temperature will reach 20 degrees.

So, for today, instead of getting out and fly fishing, just tie some flies for next spring.
Instead of skiing, just have a cup of hot chocolate in the house and pretend you are in the warming hut.
