    The mercury bounced off -18 yesterday
    Chilly start at the ski area yesterday: much more pleasant at +14 F this morning. Maybe I'll be able to change my long john's!

    ...on the button. It may have actually been colder at a point. Not to mention there's about a foot of fresh, light airy powder snow and nary a breeze. The weather conditions made for several wonderful snowshoe treks at some of my favorite haunts yesterday!

    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... :-) http://nancys-yogurt.myshopify.com/products/nancy-s-yogurt-sunshine-day… http://www.rexfoundation.org/support-rex/

    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...

Last weekend I was in my Forester and I was looking at the outside temp gauge it read 0 and my wife noticed. She asked what temperature it was outside, I said "..there ain't one" A dream we dreamed one afternoon long ago... ________________________ www.autoquoteresearch.com

Warmed up to 30 degrees today in Erie, Pa., but the wind chill was 14 degrees, and we're up to about 8 inches of snow. More snow for the rest of the week and colder temps are returning tomorrow.

It's not supposed to be like this in the Bay Area. However my kids did get to play in the snow for the second time in their nine-year lives in the hills above our home. High of about 45 today, degrees that is.

Woke up to freezing rain, a bit of an icestorm. Our vehicles as well as everything else was a sheet of ice. Then it warmed up about 2 degrees and rained all day. Needless to say my work day as an Ironworker really sucked. Kept telling my crew, there's nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile!!!

We have had 40 inches of snow in January, now it is warming up a bit and then turning to slush and freezing at night. Schools have been closed most of this week. Alao a period in there of temps just above 0 F. If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite. William Blake

cold and rainy today. Unfortunately all the flowering fruit trees were lured by the faux spring into bursting into bloom, which is probably not going to turn out well.

isn't that how it goes? Maybe it will warm up enough so the bees can get busy. Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.

A little bit of everything. Too many storms (bad ones) lately. As the elders say, "If you don't like the weather stick around another 15 minutes. It'll change. . . "

Crazy wind pushes my van into lanes without my consent. 50-60 on average. I'm not used to it man, I miss Vermont's snow. NC is awfully nice though. You can't beat the Blue Ridge Mountains.

I learned that I will not be meeting with the clients today because ice is falling from the sky - this, of course, avails me the opportunity to have a burn-fest extraordinaire, fire up 2/21/69 and pray for better weather. "Where does the time go?"

They told us to stay home again - not that I'm complaining, I just miss the clients. Speaking of the clients, one of them, a sophomore, has been battling a malignant brain tumour. Sheis one of the sweetest girls - the song "Ripple" comes to mind - in the school and a drive was begun to help fund her mounting bills. The head of the drive said that if $6,000 were raised a day of school would be missed, a number of students would donate their locks and several teachers would shave their heads in front of everyone at the school. The day the news of $ raised and hair removal everyone wore rags that said "stay strong." Several local TV crews showed up to disseminate what had gone down and everyone was overwhelmed as over $21,000 had been raised. Taylor even helped shave a head! In the many years I've been teaching this event has really shown the way the community in which I work can come together - and for that I'm grateful. O.K., time for 2/22/69 and a taste more coffee. Rock on Dead people! "Where does the time go?"

Or so they say. It's dry at the moment, though, giving the water a chance to soak in a bit. Thanks for your tale, Deadicated. Live strong beamz headed to Taylor.

Starting to cloud up here on the coast - it was a gorgeous morning though! I'm spoiled, and am tired of rain! Back home where my hubby and son live, they're tired of snow (something like 80 inches this year so far?), so I guess I shouldn't complain. but hey! It's Southern California, dammit; it's supposed to be sunny!

Steve-O, you must be in my latitude. NOAA says we're going for 34 degrees today, & this will be the first day like that since, I think, early January. I'm trying to figure out how to rig the lights to get the tomatoes & basil started indoors."Wake up to find out that you are the eyes of the world." And the hands, baby. Wanna get those hands dirty.

After our first snow of the year on Friday (1-3 inches) we had a snow day! Yeah! A perk of being a teacher. Started to melt out entirely yesterday and now it's climbing up to low 40s, sunny, no precipitation in sight (yeah- no indoor recess for the kiddies!) Able to go sledding and build snow sculptures with my kids on Friday and saturday- perfect snow for it, not a lot of it, but perfect. I'm now ready for spring and getting the garden together....Ami
