This year Birkie festivities happened to coincide with the biggest snowfall of the year. A blizzard like this would have driven most people indoors to wait it out with knitting and hot toddies. But my group was determined to take on the Giant Ski. After a grueling 6 hour drive, we all arrived safely and managed to represent as the "Reigning Cats and Dogs"
Birkie Hat 2014. See a marginally better picture here.
Although the snow was indescribably beautiful it aided in a particularly stressful Birkie event and a challenging ski.
