    I guess I'll start. Yee Haw! All the resorts had 5 ft or more of blower yesterday and today's leftovers were mighty sweet, too. My legs are Jello. Mt. Rose backcountry is on the plate for tomorrow. And the official weather speculators say that more is on the way.

    Life is good

    We're just off the path of all that winter goodness this year. The continental freezer door has been left open to some really cold temps and not a whole lot of snow. But hey, I had it good last year when a lot of folks were crying the blues. I'm stoked that you're stoked!

    So, you're not ice fishing from a snowcat in the middle of the night?

    Why? We've been too busy hurling ourselves into the powder fields and giggling uncontrollably. Tuesday was one for the ages.

    Today Wednesday was better than yesterday Tuesday because not snowing, calm, even some sun. And at least where I chose to ski, little competition.

    When we were in Orlando I was fishing from shore at the pond where the kid got eaten by an alligator. I didn't wade out into the weeds and tried to be attentive while I fished. I think people that live there have become accustomed to being aware of their surroundings and would instinctively use caution if they saw some lilly pads moving around. Still there seem to be a lot more shark attacks these days.

    Squaw was fantastic today. Rave!

    @Josh Matta We're spoiled here. Our normal is pretty good. We've had our share of nice powder days but they have to be exceptional to get the rave. Today got the rave.
