    Well, unfortunately i don't have picture uploading software to download pictures from my camera and then post them, so you'll have to believe me (or wait until Monday for the pictures)...

    Bruce and i went out earlier today; picked up my Scuderia Sebring LWB GT 2+2 Cabriolet Speciale from STS after it had some work done to it; we get back to the Chateau and - instead of shoveling or snowblowing the driveway - he puts the Durango in 4WD and starts romping up and down the driveway to flatten out the snow so i could pull in and park...! Truly a sight to behold...


    In other news, i hate this f_cking weather, i hope the Californian - he knows who he is - who called me to rub in the fact that it's in the 60's out there is just having himself a grand ol' time...

    Well, DES, despite the fact that I am not at home in Alaska enjoying the white sunshine, Colorado was about 55 degrees today. Washed and waxed the car. I may not have to use four wheel drive at all here. The drought keeps it nice and dry.

    When I get back to Alaska, I will invite you up in Febuary, so you can appreciate Bruce's weather more.

    62F here and while it's raining, I just tore out to the beach anyway! (CA coast is as beautiful in weather with it's rugged jaged foged mystery as it is in full sun.)

    Even went for a short hike. ;)


    Best!

    Hey DES;

    I noticed that the east coast was getting snow today and i immediately thought of you!!!

    It was nice and semi sunny here in AZ today. I really enjoyed waxing and tuning my snowboards in the back yard wearing t-shirt and shorts :)

    Enjoy the snow while you have it. It has not snowed in colorado in over a week i am going thru withdrawls right now.

    Patrick;

    Over on the west side of the valley it was overcast almost all day long. But it was nice :)

    Redhead;

    It looks like the Tahoe area is going to get hammered with snow this weekend. I might just have to change my christmas plans and hit the slopes out there instead :)

    The Other Rob--

    This storm will not help Tahoe too much :( The snow level is 8000' tonight and 7500 tommorow, or so "they" say. So, my GM is up there at Kirkwood right now, so we will find out how it was on Monday. I wanted to go this weekend, but no one else did. But, let me know if you are going to be up there, and when.

    Cheers

    I have already booked a room in Reno just incase i do make it out there. If i do make it it will be the 21st thru the 26th. I just talked to some buds that went to Wolfcreek and they said that the snow has turned to ice. I hope somewhere in either Tahoe or Summit county has good snow that week.

    Here was Cambridge (Boston) early this afternoon.

    Worst part is that was 9 hours ago, and it hasn't stopped snowing, and it's not supposed to stop until tomorrow.

    Locusts? What locusts? Nothing grows out here. The only locusts we have is everyone coming in for the winter not going to Florida. Keep dreamin' DES. You'll be back. ;)

    Hey DES;

    We dont have Locusts Here in the Summer. It is to damm HOT.... About the only thing i can have to come close to snow on the East coast right now is having to put up with the slow ass blue haired snowbirds driving around out here.

    Now if you excuse me i need to go out and do a snow dance!!!!!!
