Rolling in the snow
« on: January 07, 2006, 08:54:55 am »
I heard that some people who use hot tubs sometimes roll in the snow and then get back in the tub.  A couple of weeks ago we figured we'd give it a try.

It had snowed the day before, so I assumed the snow would still be powdery.  It wasn't.  It was a bit crunchy.  I even scaped my elbow!

What I wasn't prepared for was the fact that upon getting back in the hot tub, the water actually felt cold for a minute!

Has anyone else tried this?

We're not likely to do it again anytime soon!

My sons supposedly did the stand in the snow thing in fresh snow. They also throwed snowballs at each other's backs and chests.

I've had my oldest and a friend jump into 75º pool water after being in the tub. NOT ME!!!

I bought the tub for the HOT water. I hate going in cold (below 90) water.

I've done it a couple times just to see.  But it has to be nice fluffy snow.  
It's an interesting sensation, but not for everyone.

Once Mrs. Brewman did a back flop on what she thought was deep fluffy snow, but it was hard frozen, crusted over snow which had melted a bit and re-froze.  She wasn't hurt by the fall, but it was hard for me not to LMAO once I knew she was ok.

Some people do the same thing from sauna's, which are quite a bit hotter than hot tub water.

My freinds love to roll in the snow.   I personally don't do it when I am  sitting int the tub, but when friends get togethor and folks get a bit silly, eventually some one is rolling in the snow.  

New Years Eve, several folks were running around the house,  rolling in the snow, and jumping into the tub.  People may or may not have been naked while doing this.  ::)  8)

Rolling in the snow, it's a stinging sensation for me,  and jumping back in the tub, almost feels like burning.  

it's quite invigorating to say the least.   ;)

What is this "snow" you speak of?

It's 68* and rising at 9:30 this morning.  We haven't had rain in over two months and it is dry as a bone.

About all you can roll around in here are pine cones and dog squat, and that ain't much fun.

 ::) Hi Everyone,

I have to agree with Terminator, the only people I have seen rolling around on the ground where I live are trying to put out grass fires!!!

Cool, I have a friend!

Welcome friend.  I'd like to extend a gift of friendship in the form of a HotSpring Robe as soon as I get my next shipment.

BTW, can you tell Hollie to come see me?  I have some work for her, if she wants it.  Thanks!

Stop, Drop, and Roll, Eh?

I've heard about your drought.  Sounds pretty nasty.
Seems like we've got one area where there's too much water (CA), and another area needing it.

You should of seen the beautiful Snow Angels me and my wife and another couple made New Years eve in about 18 inches of the fluffy white stuff. Awe inspiring.

If you want to warm your tub up about 20 degrees for a few minutes making a snow angel will do it.

Ginger Beer and Vodka.

Avoid the yellow snow.
