Winter is finally making its move. More than 2 meters of snow are forecasted to fall in the coming week – it’s about bloody time!
It’s been hectic around good old sunny Algarve. There are absolutely no signs of winter and yet all my energy is going packing into gore-tex jackets, insulated pants, gloves, thermal layers and snowboards, while trying to tie the loose ends regarding my scientific duties, that are to be paused while The Perfect Winter is underway. Combine that with one of the best swells this year on the south coast and the arrival of the hoodies and t-shirts… Maybe you get the picture.
One of the accomplished tasks was changing into winter tires. Again, this puzzled the guys at the workshop. But now the van is all ready for snowy roads!
I’ve also been working on my equilibrium with the customized board made by One Love EcoSurf products. Never too late to start!
While all that happens, I am still soaking in the fact that The Perfect Winter got the cover on the Algarve Informativo magazine (see previous post). And this is all happening as 2015 comes to an end, as does a very worrying mild winter start that was driving everyone crazy.
The fact is Global Climate Change will be rendering our seasons further and further unpredictable. I might as well enjoy this winter and this project to its fullest extent – who knows when and how could this come together again?
