Funny, my nickname used to be 'ski-man' but I was never a skier. On another tangentially related note, I just supported the Rex Foundation! There is a t-shirt available over at Nancy's Yogurt and all proceeds benefit the Rex Foundation. It's thanks to you for including the website... :-)

no need

Snowshoed today and it was great! (if a little shallow on the snow) At least it was cold enough. Was able to spot a kingfisher, a screaming red-tailed hawk, a beaver den and various other mammal tracks...

if you're anywhere near Squaw Valley on April 1

And you're a ski person, consider signing up for the Rex Foundation's Fire on the Mountain Vertical Challenge. Details at rexfoundation.org.

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. Curried Pork Chops w/ Mashed Potatoes and Honey Glazed Green Beans.
