2.5 kubbs of snow in Eau Claire

Well, I guess it doesn’t matter if I have a bad wrist or not, as Eau Claire just got 14.7 inches of snow, which comes out to be 37.3cm, or 2.5 kubbs high. My kubb playing was put on hold due to my right wrist, now 1.2 kings high of snow will make sure that if/when this wrist comes around, that it will only be indoor training.

Thanks for all the support and comments Sweden’s Sons have gotten from our friends, family, supporters. We will do our best to get back into playing form for the Minnesota Kubb Loppet Tournament (I am hoping Paul will practice at least once before the largest winter tournament on planet Earth). I am in full therapy mode, and luckily, Erin does not mind shoveling, and my mom and stepdad are here as well, and they were able to push a little snow as well.

I thought I would post a picture what the front of my house looks like right now.

Tendinitis, in the right wrist?!?!

Eric here. I hurt my right wrist a couple weeks ago. Feels like a sprain. I am not sure how I did it. Perhaps picking up one of my daughters, playing football with them in the house, or working out at the Y. Not sure. I tried to rest it the best I could for a little more than a week. Bought a little brace for it. Nothing would help. Finally, I realized that I have to have this thing working before the Minnesota Kubb Tournament in February (and I had not played since probably the Dallas Tournament two months ago). I decided to go to the doctor yesterday. Well, as it is happening more and more, the doctor told me that things like this happen when you get older. According to the doctor, I have tendinitis. WHAT?!!!? Rest, ice, rest and ice. No kubb for me for awhile. (I am not going to complain, because I could be in Steve Feathers’s shoes and be resting from a new knee.) As I left the office, I could not help but laugh. Does he not know that I have a kubb tournament, heck the largest winter kubb tournament in the world, in two months.

From a sunny and actually sort of warm Eau Claire, Wisconsin, have a wonderful day.
