Hahahahahaha...I was mistaken--56" in the last 48 hours--48" in the last 24 hours!!!

No skiing today, but the season is set!

Well nolo my wife, pretty much the sole bread winner lost her job on Dec 15th. One of her former clients hired her last Monday for what she was making before plus much better benefits and retroactive to Dec 15th plus they are paying the holidays. Since my wife is in a 6 figure bracket I would say that is a very nice Christmas present.

House husband keeps his job.

Send some good luck my way, will ya' Pierre!
What did I get for Christmas?

My integrity!

I spoke up a bit too vehemently about some company policies that were both unfair and unsafe for some of our members, and lost one of my main sources of income exactly one week before Christmas.
This explains the Dorothy Parker poem in my sig file.

On the bright side, Mark got me a PDA, so I can work on my articles from anywhere. Otherwise, Chistmas was somewhat humble and Dickensonian, spending time with the people and pets I care for.

Nolo is understating things. I was up there today. They had received 53" from closing the previous day until 11:00 in the morning and it was still coming down at a rate of 3" per hour. They couldn't open the mountain today and expect to open tomorrow with over 5 feet of powder on top. My Pocket Rockets and I will be there early tomorrow.

You would think a legless guy would do better pan-handling in the big city .

My Granny gave me a 50€ note to go out and ski (me=38, Granny=90).
That will cover one day skiing, and I intend to go asap!
Thanks Granny, I love you!!

I took my wife to the ski hill for her first outing of the season and the boss asked me to handle a lesson. That led to a couple request private lessons on subsequent days (we get a bonus for requests). And my wife got to ski without worrying about my picking on her (which she worries about unnecessarily because I've long since learned not to offer any "help"). So it was a merry Christmas Ski Day.

<font size=+3>Oh, the humanity!!!!</font>

My first impressions while riding up the chair today. Bridger Bowl ended up with 81" between closing on Friday and reopening on Sunday. The 81" was primo base building snow which meant it was too heavy to ski that deep. While riding up the chair this morning I saw the carnage of the first skiers attempting to get down. Out of 25 or so skiers coming down Emil's Mile only 4 or 5 where still standing. It was insane, tiring, perversly fun and memorable.
