Hey Wilbeer, heard the same thing talking with my 91 year old Dad last night who lives in Western Pa. I admonished him NOT to get out on the snow blower. He has assured me that he's finally hired that out.
Stay warm and safe all you East Coasters!!! I'm headed out for a bike ride in regular bike shorts. Go figure...too warm here actually.

How's Whistler Mike? I'm thinking about watching the weather up there and making a trip so I can get my pow fix.

Depression and sense of doom is the prevailing mood here in the Tahoe Sierra. Yea you can go climbing but man it's January, things are not right! There's been talk in the Trench of burning the Ghoulwe snow god Ningue and to praise Ullr, these are times that test faith.

hey eKat
what's with yer piston bully fetish??
;-)

Ain't snowin' OR rainin' here in the SCruz mts. I took a cross country hike on New Year's Eve and the criks which should be runnin' well by now are just pathetic trickles. All the ground is dust. The last rain here was Dec 8 and we've only got 2.8" total fer the season. Last year we were at 21" and THAT was a dry winter.

Flew over the Sierra on Monday coming home from the East coast. Good snow cover on the peaks west of Pine Creek Pass but all the foothills and the east bay hills are brown.

Where is the damned snow???

Not in the Lake Tahoe area :(

Why is it snowing in Chicago? There is no mountains in Chicago.

That's messed up, man!

Have you ever driven a PistEn (as in piste) Bully?

They are an anal retent's dream come true. . . the next best thing is a Zamboni!

All it takes is 5 minutes in one of those things to be hooked for life.

FUNNY. . . the cat in that BigMtn webcam shot is probably a Bombardier, though.

In the Northeast, a couple of days of rain, snow and ice before Christmas and now this.
The ice should be getting FAT in New England. Just wait a week for the stuff to consolidate.

hey there eKat
in fact I have driven one. An ancient growler (can't remember the brand name except I remember changing the plugs on the anemic Falcon straight six engine) when I was working maintenance at Solitude back in the stone age. Crawling through deep powder up to the top lift stations to get the communications equipment in order so they could open. Hoping the beast didn't slide sideways and backwards down a couple of gullies.
Dyamn, I'd almost forgotten about that pay-my-way-through-college job.

YUP it was a Tucker. Even new, they looked like they'd been welded up by an Oklahoma farmer! No wonder the Euros/Canucks have taken over the market. As they have so many markets, like buses, mass transit movers etc etc.

Stop you?
as if that were possible!

HohMahn. . . I have driven some really funky snow cats! A particular Tucker comes to mind. . . all kinds of tall and tippy. . . YIKES!

So far, the Kassbohrer Pisten Bully is the finest. . . sorta like the Mercedes of snow cats!

:-)

I've also driven a high end Kassborrer Setra tour bus. . . they're remarkable.

I just have a thing for certain high end, precision machines. . . whether it's a Sikorsky, a Pisten Bully, a Zamboni. . .

SOMEBODY STOP ME!

Ooohhh Dawggy! Pisten Bully is the bees knees of kitty cats, that's for sure. When u run em like they do here, only the best will do!!

Took this yesterday.



Brian-

Snow conditions are severly lacking here too. It will come. It's snowing a bit today.

Blackcomb Glacier has a few holes in it still.. ;)
