I agree. The bobsled. The luge. The skeletor (I think that's what they call it). Downhill skiing. The slalom.

Snow is way more fun than sunshine!

And a K3.

There are some Summer events that I like, but none of them involve a team and a ball. The gymnastics are one of the few I pay any attention to. I enjoy watching nearly all of the Winter events. (Nearly all. I'm not a big hockey fan)

They have a women's hockey team you know.

No K3's though.

Really? I guess I must truly be a southern gal. I'd rather watch summer games!
Winter Olympics are in the winter. When it is dark and cold sixteen to eighteen hours a day and light and cold the remainder of the day. There is nothing else to do at night but watch previously recorded Olympic Events. Can't go out and mess around in the garden!

Maybe where you are...

We can reasonably expect to have beach weather 10 months of the year.

You can if you have a greenhouse!

And you wouldn't need a K3 either.

Just some cheese and bacon.
