    01/20/21 Snow Ridge

    It's been quite busy at work lately, but an unexpected dry spell hit yesterday afternoon. Luckily it coincided with a snowy spell in Turin NY. It's been a couple years since I've skied Snow Ridge. Lake effect snow just ain't what it used to be. He'll, even Erie produced lake snow from this...

    Amazing Observation at the Car Wash

    I took my mom's car for a fill up and a wash. Typical hand operated spray wash. While washing the car I noticed a couple spider web strands between the driver's side view mirror and the door. I aimed the spray at them fully expecting them to get blown away. They did not. They didn't even budge...

    Are Teslas smart enough not to camp in the passing lane?

    While driving home on 86 from Elmira yesterday I came upon a line of 4 cars in the passing lane. A red car was blocking those behind and wouldn't speed up, or slow down, and move to the driving lane. Finally it passed a car in the driving lane and everyone, including me, passed the red car on...

    Trump was right...Fauci IS inept

    Wow, just wow. He doesn't look like he's related to 50 cent, but perhaps he is. I think that pitch was as close to first as it was to home. Did he really play hoops in college? Makes GW's strike with a Kevlar vest on after 911 even more impressive. Sent from my Moto E (4) Plus using AlpineZone...

After several minutes of entering, and re-entering information, I arrived at a page that informed me that I couldn't continue with the "free" edition, and in...

    New to You in 2018-2019

    Ok, what new places did you ski this year? For me it was Oak Mountain, West Mountain, and Camelback. Oak was pretty cool. Has to have the slowest lift anywhere, fixed gripped quad. Makes the Northwoods quad at Gore seem speedy. You'd ski out to the loading zone, and wait, and wait, and wait...

    Clever YouTube Product Placement

    Did anyone else who watched game one of the World Series think they were watching a YouTube video? I guess it pissed some people off. Those who watch too much YouTube, I guess. I thought it was pretty clever. Sent from my Moto G (4) using AlpineZone mobile app

    McCauley, the little mountain that delivers big fun, 1/15/17

    Much like Platty I found myself saying to myself, "Why did I wait so long to ski this place?" after finally skiing there. McCauley was on our radar for last week's LES event. Unfortunately the snow fell between McCauley and Snow Ridge, missing both. Rambo, myself, and Dickgazinya, had a great...
