    Well, there's always February..

    Thanks! It sucks now but at least it's not supposed to be like this all week. Hopefully they will crank out the snowguns and if it stays warmer it'll be spring conditions and better towards weeks' end as they clean things up and build the base up for the weekend. The weekend warriors will be happy but I have to leave Friday night.

    It's nice to be able to just get away. There's a beer bottle with my name on it for being in the hot tub later on. . It's good to be able to relax in any case.

    I'm eyeing the long range forecast for more "opportunities". It'll get better. My daughter and I have already made plans to ski in 2 weeks for a day out at Camelback if it stays cold and hopefully snows a bit.

    I've had some of my best ski days in the east when it was hovering around freezing and raining at the base. Recreation skiers go do something else like take a tour of the Ben and Jerry's factory while in reality it can be dumping at the summit and even mid mountain.

    I hope in your situation this is the case, stay positive

    I didn't buy a ticket for today. It's looking pretty grim but I'm hoping that tomorrow and thursday things will be good and that it's not so bad right now at the summit. Maybe a miracle will happen and they will get some snow up there tonight.

    I'm going the next 3 days, unless they close the mountain. Judging by how hard it's raining I'm praying not. Fortunately it's supposed to stop and not freeze up and be windy like last week so it could be worse. We'll see..

    I wish they'd shut the damn Weather Channel off here in the hotel lounge. It's depressing to listen to how much snow OTHER parts of the country is getting..

    In the meantime I'm having a great time building up a nice fire in the fireplace here.

    Looks like they might pick up a couple inches on the back end tonight....knock on wood.

    Radar looks like snow at Cannon but I can't tell if the trees on the cam shot are white from snowmaking or today.
    My couch might pull out but I send it.

    Probably today...I would think that snow would have melted off the last few days.

    Sick of RAIN. Same weather pattern all winter. We get tons of snow - then the rain washes it all away.
