    ...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/

Last week at this time set a record high temp of 86 degrees for Erie, Pa. Today is 47 degrees, damp, and windy. I'm not looking forward to the comming winter, as I'm an Iron Worker and work outside. Love the summers though.

Southern California has the best weather! It only got up to about 72 today on the coast. My mom and stepfather are staying with me for the week, and they thought it was a little chillier th than they'd been expecting, but I think it's just perfect.

When I left Andalucia for the weekend, was sunny and close to 30 degrees (80 something for you farenheit guys) Was warm enough to get a wee bit of color in my face when outside. Here in southern Germany is crisp and cool, shocking enough to have given me a lovely cold.********************************* Don't part with your illusions.

Go f*#K yourself, San Diego! OK, I love this line 'cause I'm sick of hearing how f'ing great your weather is out there. ENOUGH ALREADY! DO YOU WANT MY HEAD TO EXPLODE? Just kidding, Izz. Over "here" we've had a summer of drought, heat and humidity (you do know it's not the heat, blah, blah, blah) and now it should be time for the greatest event of the year, autumn but the drought will be sure to abate our fun, in that regard. Sorry if I seem a bit bleak but here's how I see the weather report today (sorry this may be the wrong thread): You want a prediction about the weather, you're asking the wrong Phil. I'll give you a winter prediction: It's gonna be cold, it's gonna be grey, and it's gonna last you for the rest of your life. Of course that's just how I feel today. On other daze, I feel more like this (so don't worry, 'cause it's actually very beautiful here, crisp temps and vivid skies, with Halloween nipping the Autumn air with fanged teeth. No leaf color to speak of, as yet): Winter, slumbering in the open air, wears on its smiling face a dream... of spring (with a box of Keenex on the night stand). Ciao. The Dude Abides!

Yeah, we have 'em here in north Texas - you step outside and report what the weather is like. Weather forecasting? We don't bother, nobody knows. I believe it was Mark Twain who said - "Everyone complains about the weather but nobody does anything about it."

When a blind man takes your hand and says; Don't you see - you have the most beautiful face; Don't you see - we're floating in space; Don't you see - happiness makes you cry; Don't you see - everyone you know someday will die. Life goes fast; It's hard to make the good things last; The sun doesn't "go down"; It's just an illusion caused by the world spining 'round. It's apparently music fusion time for me. Thanks Wayne Coyne and The Flaming Lips for not suing me for loving your music. "All energy flows according to the whims of the Great Magnet. What a fool I was to defy him."

I'm down here visiting family in Laguna Niguel till tomorrow, and while there are no fires in the immmediate area, there are at least 10 significant fires in SoCal, and the air is so thick with smoke you can barely see the houses across the street, forget the ocean. I can only imagine what it's like in the actual fire area. My brother's a volunteer firefighter in Fallbrook, and consqeuently couldn't come to our family gathering yesterday.

Here in Eastern Washington the skies are grey and the temperature is in the 40's and it feels damp. The hardwoods leaves are falling and some of the trees are getting bare and others are quite colorful. The rains have come and fire season here is over until next July or August. Always a bit of relief with that. I know what you are going through in So. Cal. with the fires. A big part of our lives here.

Sorry about the lives affected by the fires. Here in Erie, PA we had a very nice day, warm and dry. Just took my son for a walk in the stroller, I think he enjoyed it. Tonight the weather should turn more fall like accordinding to the forecasters. Rainy and much cooler for the rest of the week.

What Steve-O said goes for me, as well, in regards to those terrible fires. I'm praying for any relief possible for you guys. The news can't do the situation justice, I'm sure, and yet the images and scope presented on TV and internet are terrifying to everyone here on the other coast. Everyone I know is concerned and pulling for the situation to turn for the positive. The Dude Abides!

positive vibes for the folks in firefighting and everyone in the area. for anyone who has never been in the belly of the beast in a wildfire, consider yourself blessed because it is like being in Dante's inferno of hell.

Thanks for that update, CCJoe! (GRTUD's hands tremble as he opens a Xanax bottle and liberally pours them into the funnel he now hold's in his mouth). In a garbled voice GRTUD continues, "Ah, Dante's Hell...", as he chews, swallows the pills and his eyes glaze over. Thank you Walter, that makes me feel very secure, it makes me feel very warm inside.

I am not in the firestorm as I live at the beach, but have been racing through three cell phones today trying to keep track of the 35 folks in my staff at work, several of home are facing the loss of everything material in their world. It is a very weird time in San Diego.

GRTUD et al, we were in our own Dante's inferno of fire hell and back, but that was years ago, not now. izzie, and everyone else in the So. Cal area that is affected by this terrible fire; positive vibes are heading your way, to all of your family and friends and, again, to all of the firefighters, people who risk life and limb. hopefully the gods of Santa Anna will cut the wind, and the rain will come.
