    24 hours ago we were at 60 degrees. 22.5 degrees now and a fresh 3" coating of snow. Just enough to make this afternoon's commute longer than it needed to be.

    Weather has been bipolar as anything.

    The past two weeks, it's been going from highs in the upper 40s one day to highs in the mid-70s the next to highs in the low 50s the next day. No consistency.

    I've lived in the south for six or seven years now and will never get used to these winters. If it's going to be cold, at least stay cold.

    Well, it might be 22 degrees outside but it's still 70 degrees inside.

    Rain tonight and likely on and off all next week. We need it. My grass will be happy.
    Not ideal weather for working on cars, though.

    More than 30 centimeters now. The most we've had in years.
    Rain in the forecast for the next days.

    I'm not gonna complain, though. Some regions in Bavaria and Austria have several meters of snow.

    Rained so hard last night that it woke me up a few times. Still raining now.
    It’s supposed to let up tomorrow but then rain again all next week.
    The burn areas are going to slide.

    Panic about to set in in the northeast. Milk, bread & toilet paper soon to be in high demand.

    Bring it Mother Nature! I need a reason to fire up that dusty snowblower.

    74 inches of it that have dumped on Squaw Valley this week. Another 12 inches overnight and I'm drooling to get some, but I have to work today.:mad: However, I'll be waist deep in it this weekend.:D

    My weatherman got the first chair this morning.:lol2:

    Is that a competition? To get the first chair?

    The first chair equals first tracks on a powder day, and there is nothing like it. You would have to be a skier or a border to get it I guess. The energy and the buzz you get in the line up on a powder day with the sounds of avalanche bombs going off is epic. People are hooping and hollering with huge grins on there faces. And when that first chair gets loaded, it's officially on, and there are no friends on a powder day. If you got a buddy who might not be as good as yourself, and can't keep up, you tell them I'll see you at the bar at the end of the day.:lol2: ********, I can't wait till tomorrow.:D

    Remember: there are no friends on a powder day

    Riding with friends is great, but if it’s dumping you must follow your inner Yeti and remember this sacred commandment of the ski bum: there are no friends on a powder day.

    As any powder hound will tell you, if you wait for your friends to get their sh!t together in the morning, the trails will all be tracked out by the time you get your posse rounded up. Fresh pow is a perishable commodity!

    I love my friends and there’s certainly nothing wrong with skiing or snowboarding in a group on a powder day. But the adage does capture some mountain wisdom. Powder days often mean slow roads, big traffic delays, long lines, and other obstacles, all of which conspire against a wolfpack converging.

    If you wait for your friends to show up, get dressed, put on their boots, buy their ski pass, go to the bathroom, get a snack, readjust their boots, go back to the car — the powder day may be over before it starts!

    Damn. I'm glad that I grew up water skiing.

    Yeah, it's a highly addictive sport, but there's nothing like it. I still get out there and water ski and shred my Kawi 650 single jet ski in the summer, but I would take skiing over any of them in a heartbeat.
