Snow sucks if you're a skateboarder. And if you live on the East Coast things have been sucking really bad lately. Every snowstorm seems to be followed by a blizzard and then topped off with some freezing rain, then repeated three days later. Living in New Jersey over 30 years you'd think I'd be used to these winters by now but I tell you that these two past years have been worse than the last 10 combined. I have chest-high snowdrifts on the sides of my driveway from shoveling. My NJ Skateshops were open only eight days in January due to this awful weather. The nearest indoor park isn't very near at all (minimum of an hour drive), and we're all starting to lose our minds from cabin fever. In an attempt to get just a little human interaction I texted three of my Zoo York buddies that are suffering like I am to see what they've been doing to stay sane through these harsh times.
