The local ski season starts tomorrow!  Perfect North Slopes opens tomorrow at noon.  I guess I better get to waxing some skis.

Wow, now I know why people talk about the WROD.  It's been a long time since I made an opening day and with a very limited amount terrain open for some very eager skiers it was scary at times.  I did snap a couple of pictures from the dec before heading out.  I'll try to get them off the camera tonight.

I am too familiar with the WROD. To keep it fun I consider the other skiers/boarders as moving slalom gates.

I'm shooting at Wednesday for my first turns.  Joints up North/West around here were open over the weekend. It is still cold enough to keep making snow up there today.   I'm hoping that taking a PTO day will result in WROD standing for;

The snow is still flying at PNS.  The current temperature is 21.9 degrees at the base and going by the web cams its a total white out from top to bottom.  I just hope there is a little more open to ski this weekend.

What the...?  It's 40 degrees here right now.

 

On another note, I seem to remember there being a huge tornado in Xenia, Ohio way back when I was a kid...

The ski area has a weather station at the base you can access online.

It's already up to 25 and climbing rather rapidly with plenty of sun.  I'm not sure what it got down to there but I saw 17 degrees on the way to work this morning.

 

 

Tornadoes are definitely what Xenia is known for.  I've only lived there since 2004 so I've missed the history makers. They say from the air you can still see the path the storm took through town in 1974.  The city got hit again in 99 but it was no where near the F5 monster they saw in 74.

Omaha is the same way -- I remember running home from school in the rain/storm (right around the mid 70s as well).

 

Tornado went right down the busiest street in the city and leveled buildings for about a mile.

I think I would rather take my chances in Xenia though compared to living in the heart of tornado alley. biggrin.gif

When the Rockies are having some sweet spring skiing we are usually dodging baseball sized hail.

 

One storm we had so much hail I was tempted to get out an old pair of skis and hit the back yard (although I was too busy on the phone trying to reach our insurance guy).
