Tonight I had to go pick up Winona from basketball practice. Three winters ago, that would have been impossible. Not only was I limited to daytime driving (my muscles were too stiff in the evening), but a stressful drive in the snow made my muscles even more tight. So as I drove 25 minutes each way on the slippery back roads of Plymouth and Wayzata I was grateful that I could. Don't get me wrong, I would have preferred to be at home sitting in front of a cozy fire, but I was doing what was once the impossible. I guess you could say that winter evenings will never be the same and I love that I can say that!
