    Stayed home- worked and made a sculpture yesterday (fairly productive). Had 7" when I woke up, and it snowed all day.

    Weird rain/snow line- normally there's a wide area of slush. This time it dropped off quickly.

    Gonna head out in a bit to snowblow the drive. Been spitting off and on since last night, got maybe 3" or so.

    Next week they are saying up to 10-11" looks like. Not that I put much faith in that though, either it will be 50* and sunny or we end up with 2 feet.

    Flowering willow-cherry that my wife bought several years ago has buds on it . . . and even though we got a bunch of snow the other day most of it disappeared with the rain and warm temps . . . we're moving fast into Spring . . . skipped right over Winter for the most part. Only two rides on the sled this Winter.

    That's only because they weren't swimming- then they'd be a disgrace littorally

    A disgrace to man, but an insult to women. Ugh. Kinda reminds me of those fake wrestlers they used to have on Saturday TV.

    Now I know you're making up lies . . . everyone knows Elvis is working at Burger King in Montana. I believe he is the Assistant Manager at one of the stores in Billings. :)

    Firstly, wrestling is NOT fake...its scripted. Totally different.
    Secondly, Few things test your security in "man-ness" like a mankini. You gotta be super tough, like myself, in order to deal with the jeering, and snickering, and pointing, and the little kids saying "mommy, why is that man's underwear pulled up over his shoulders?"...and the jeering, and snickering.

    you wont be laughing when you see me at the Olympics this summer, doing the high dive in my mankini....you'll be too jealous to laugh...jealous cuz I'm on TV...but I'll wave to you, to rub it in.

    YOu know how I know its almost spring? Daylight Losing Time is this Sunday! Sneaky sneaky.

    Bob Mould actually took a break from music to write scripts for wrestling (yes- THAT Bob Mould). That is one of the most unexpected, out there things that I could have imagined.

    Argh, more snow again, looks like about 8-10" worth this time. At this rate it'll be July before this is all gone!

    One sure way that is an indicator of spring, less members logged in.


    Another sure way is seeing just how far a thread can get off topic and not be shut down!

    The seagulls did not like the 20" of fresh snow we got up north last weekend.
