    When you watch the weather channel and hope they're off by a few degrees so you may be able to get a few more runs out of the season, (or at the beginning of the season that it will get a little warmer than they predict to get the run started).

    That picture reminds me of myself about 10 years ago when I first went to gravity tubing. I was gung ho and the weather was about 5 degrees. I had a ball, laying out new tubing in the cold and snow! Great shot!
