The day after Thanksgiving, November 27th, 2009.
My outdoor backyard shower is hooked up to my garden hose, and cost $15 in parts from any hardware store. It hangs over a branch outside the door to my changing room. It’s been a wonderful addition to our sauna experience, simulating jumping into a cool lake after a long sauna round.
Yesterday, I could tell that the shower season here in Minnesota was almost over. As I turned on the shower, it started with a trickle and it took a couple minutes to push ice through the hose.. brrrrr made for an even more refreshing ‘splash’ cooling off under the rushing water.
Standing under the brisk shower, I said out loud “‘thanks shower, see you in Spring!”, my wife shaking her head with a smile on her face.
