well, it's been cold here...

At least I can say that. There has been a short stretch of sub-zero temps and even more frigid wind chills. Unfortunately, there has not been much in the way of snow again this winter. I essentially have to head north or to higher elevations if I want to experience any deep snow. We only have 5" of snow cover at the moment! We're also looking at the potential for mid-40 degree weather and rain for the latter part of next week which should essentially obliterate the little we currently have. I guess Punxatawny Phil was right...

On a positive note, I was able to get one of my old snowshoes repaired for only $20. The crampon was broke. It's amazing how difficult those parts can be to track down! The snow shoe companies really have planned obsolescence down to a "t"! Thanks to my perseverance and stick-to-itiveness I have a real nice set for backup. And on another positive note, I have at the moment reservations for Sedgwick, CO and 2 nights in Denver for Spring Break. And, a little bit later I will set the reservation for 2 or 3 nights at Estes Park, which is just a stones throw from the Colorado Rockies wilderness and paradise for a snowshoer like me. There's not much I'd rather be doing on the first day of spring than snowshoeing in the Colorado Rockies.

yeah

if you can avoid driving in this, it's a good idea. I got a flat yesterday so had to go to Costco today to get a replacement, and the freeway was such a mess coming home that I was really glad to have the good tires. Even gladder to be home and not have to go out again.

This rain does take me back to a whole lot of getting soaked outside the Henry J.

about over up here

got about 6 inches in the mountains of NC, about a half inch of ice under the snow. Shoveled it up and dug out the car, roads are ok, but there will be ice. Still slightly snowing here but is winding down, not the 12 to 18 inches they had projected.

more rain in the Bay Area

No complaints from me, but I don't live in the flood zone either. Be careful out there!

snow?

So they got a half inch in DC? More on the way? Ain't really got squat in Western WI. Maybe 5" of snow cover. So much for snowshoeing. Oh well, gonna give it a shot anyway Saturday, maybe check out the ice falls and slap some dinner on the stove in the warming cabin after.

snow yet?

Looking at a weather maker coming through tomorrow afternoon into Tuesday. We're due for some significant snowfall having had nearly none this December and mild temps for most of the month. Global weirding anyone? We're looking at 6-12". I have my snow shoes at the ready, of course...

@ Finally Fall

Well, it took a while but, fall has set in here in St. Louis. Had to break out the jackets and such. Not much color on the trees yet, but it shouldn't be long now...

this week's forecast

Stalled high pressure has us sunny, clear and seasonable here in western WI. Highs will be near 60 and lows mid-30's the next 5 days/nights. Fall colors are arriving at their peak as well. I hope to get in one more solid bike trip in the forest (Monday) before the snow flies. The colors should prove to be gorgeous!
