Skateboarding in Snow

Things are still. The air is heavy and moist. Up above, the mountains merge with cloud. Then, close by, brittle leaves are startled by wind. A quick flake follows. Then another. Then more. While roads and sidewalks will soon be rendered unrideable, skateboarding nonetheless feels celebratory as flakes thicken and a flurry of confetti descends upon Manchester.
