Finally some snow!
Dec 7th, 2018 at 12:15pm
 
It's the 7th of December and we've only just now gotten some snow. Took it's time... Well now it's here, it's instantly more pleasant to be outside and far lighter. It also means I can chuck snowballs around with the Tibetan slings which I've been wanting to do for at least a month.

Nice.  We've seen some snow here, but not much more than a dusting.  Definitely not enough for a good snowball.

Tibetan sling?  Is that from Amdo Craft?

I actually use two in the video and yeah both are Amdo Craft. I really love them. Such great workmanship and they are so fun to use.

Thanks!  I've seen some older threads on the Amdo Craft slings and was thinking about ordering one.  All the feedback on the forum seemed to be really positive.

Considering what you get for the price, I absolutely recommend them. It's an absolute steal. I would buy another one but I think two is enough for me Cheesy

We've gotten measurable snow here in South Jersey twice so far.  The first time was about five inches and last week we got about three. Though there is still a little snow on the ground here and there both times most of the snow melted the next day.  That's pretty normal for here.  We don't usually don't get our serious snow until after the holidays.

The snow we had on the 7th was slush on the 8th and gone by the 9th. Been raining and wet and horrible since. I think it was even worse to have some really great snowball snow and then for it to disappear than if we got no snow at all! Just as I remembered how fun the Tibetan slings were, it's now too wet and awful to go out and use them Sad It's the same every year though, I spend the starrt of winter wishing for snow then the end of winter cursing it Cheesy

I just actually noticed the difference in weight with the two Tibetan slings in my hand so weighed them and the shorter one is 46g and the longer 63g. I have no idea if anyone would need to know that but if someone is considering getting one to carry regularly it might make a difference? I don't know just thought I'd be thorough with the information about them Cheesy

I did place an order for a few at the end of last week.  And got the shipping notification on Monday.  Can't wait for them to arrive!

Now I'll be hoping for some snow too.  Never thought I would hear myself say that Smiley

Awesome! They always vary so it'll be interesting to see what yours are like.
