After the Sledding, Expedition to Enceladus

We’ve already received our message that school is cancelled tomorrow. Brittany was already asleep so I snuck in and turned off her alarm. She’ll be up early anyway, enjoying a day of reading.

You can’t call it a snow day, really. South KC is looking to get a nice half-inch glaze of ice overnight with more expected tomorrow.

My evening concert tonight at a nearby children’s center was postponed, so Brit and I hit the slopes for some ice sledding. The park in our subdivision was already smooth-sloped from our earlier forays this weekend. There was some fast action out there. I had to dig in my heels at top speed to stop from going in the gully.alien-face-in-ice.jpg

After we had enough racing, Brit and I “explored” the ice moon Enceladus. Our boots crunched in the refrozen snow. We turned up this alien face on the underside of the uppermost ice layer. Returned to home base for storage and later analysis.

Upon our return, the whole expedition enjoyed some hot chocolate before the sleep cycle commenced.

It looks like another mission will be scheduled for tomorrow.
