The month of February was a month full of snow for most of the US, including Arizona! A lot of people were not happy about shoveling snow in Arizona, because they came here to retire away from the snow, but we were loving it.
We started off the first week by skipping school on Tuesday to go snowboarding up in Flagstaff with some of our friends from school. Military rides for free on Tuesdays so that is why we went then and it was totally worth it. It actually turned out being one of the best snow condition days I have ever had. In Arizona; Go figure!
The 13th-17th of the month we met my family in Silverthorn, Colorado to go skiing and snowboarding. We spent most of our time at Loveland Resort, but we also went to Breckenridge and Keystone. We had my cousins, Abbey, Shanna, and her boyfriend and they all learned how to ski very well. They were doing Black Diamond trails by the end of the trip. My dad and sister-in-law, Kelsey, normally ski, but they learned how to snowboard this trip too.
Our flight out of Denver got cancelled and the next one was 24 hours later so we got to explore downtown Denver!
We had school on Wednesday and then the whole town shut down because of the amount of snow we were getting. On the 21st and 22nd of the month, the Mayor of Prescott declared a state of emergency as we received 22 inches of snow! I got to play some stocks in the mornings and we also went out and played in the snow with the Subaru went snowboarding behind the Subaru as well.
On the last day of the month Embry-Riddle wrote a post about us on their main Facebook page. This was pretty cool to see and we really do appreciate everything this school has done for us.
That is all we have for the month of February and we appreciate you taking the time to read this!
