We survived the frigid weather on Friday night. The Motzaei Shabbos activities ran the gamut from a Gaga tournament to a moving kumzits.
The weather on Sunday took a turn for the awesome. We put away the scarfs and gloves, and broke out the light sweatshirts. Skiing, snowboarding and sledding were a perfect way to end the Shabbaton.
We have arrived in Running Springs. It is quite chilly, but beautiful. Gut Shabbos!
