Sledders


Sledders

Finally ! We got to go sledding this morning. The icy snow was tempered by just enough new snow or wear to keep every downhill run from being a brush with bruises or worse.

More here.

How do you feel about this new mandatory helmet law they're proposing?

At first, I kind of rolled my eyes… I mean, while it's quite possible, getting a serious head or neck injury from sledding, . There were two kids at the hill today wearing helmets, and they didn't look too burdensome, but I'd rather leave it up to the parents. My thinking is that as suddenly as things can happen while you're sledding, what happens is still much more under your control, than, say, operating a bicycle on a street.

It definitely makes sense if you're on the classic sled going head first. There wasn't a single one of those on the hill today, though.

My mother phoned to tell me the kids next door and a friend had knocked on her door to ask if they could coast in her yard. She was delighted; sat there watching them from her dining room all afternoon. All the splendid long hills where we coasted have been verboten. Also, the ponds where we skated. We were outdoors from 9 am to 3 pm every day in snow. F*cking lawyers and suit-happy parents.
