flatlands of Mass.
Leaves turning and falling from a few trees on my property make it look more like mid-late Sept than mid August. Anyone else?
Tree in the backyard has dropped almost all of its leaves and some birches have dropped as well. If only it were a sign of fall and not of drought stress...:(

The Patriots are playing tonight, albeit preseason. Always a good sign.

Had a ski dream a few nights ago.

Ski dreams are the best. Unless they involve some bizarre situation like lack of snow, equipment failure, something weird going on with the lifts, or some random dream-person preventing you from getting about the business of skiing.

Mine almost always take place at the same surreal dream resort. This resort tends to evolve continually as I experience different ski areas in waking life. A little bit of everything, and then some.

Mine involves the lift going thru my hotel room (ultimate ski in ski out)!

I've gone back to skimap.org and randomly set one as my work desktop background. Right now it's set to park city

I've started looking at planning my vacation. Just decide to forego Jackson Hole, Salt Lake City, or Colorado. The Dolomites sound like a good idea.

Cortina is a fun place to stay.Although expensive the town is has a great nightlife and potential to connect to hundreds of lifts through the Dolimiti Superski.Have been to Cortina but not for skiing.Its close to Venice if you want to mae an inteerstng combo trip.

Saw my first live snow patches since May for me yesterday! Out vacationing at Yellowstone with the family now and there's still a few patches left at higher elevations! Today should really help increase the coming season excitement as we're driving over to Big Sky and taking their alpine adventure tour which involves rides on one of their high speed quads and the Lone Peak Tram! :)
