Marcie Boy's Bright Idea

It was a crisp fall day: delightfully sunny, cold, and clear. Our fearless leader decided we should canoe for an hour before doing the usual Tuesday Medley, and at 1:30pm, it was decided that we would meet at 3:30. But no sooner had the decision been made did the wind pick up, the sun dart behind the clouds, and the temperature plummet. As a rule, Rochester's weather is reliably un-reliable. But we didn't mind-- if it was going to be cold for the paddle, at least it was windy and pouring rain as well. Not to mention the creek was roaring [by my rookie c1 standards] and I didn't make one single corner upstream. But nevertheless, paddling kicks ass right now because I've only gone, like, twice since Holyoke. Only approximately 34 more days of abstinence (but who's counting?) and I'll be chomping at the bit on New Years Day, aka Day One. It's going to be a good year.
