    As for the Mt Hamilton HamCams, Ham Cam 1 is currently iced over and Ham Cam 2's image is shrouded in fog. But check them later, the images should be pretty nice.

    I'm a super happy camper. We've gotten no snow but it's quite cold here...for here. I'm walking around with a big ole grin on my face and if I wasn't afraid of being locked up, I'd probably break into a skip... I LOVE THIS WEATHER! Highs in the high 20's today - awesome!

    The PNW people all think I'm crazy as they bundle up and shiver. My southern husband hasn't stopped whining in two days. Whatever. In my mind, when the thermometer reads -27F, THEN you can complain about cold!

    And thanks for sharing all the photos, everyone! I miss snow and I love seeing pictures of it.

    Here's a picture of my horse and donkey in the snow ... love it... I call them horse-sicles. Love the picts of this morning's trail ride... can't say I'm tough enough to go do that here. I totally hear you about small chores turn into big 'ums. I used to keep my critters at home, and I felt like I was working as hard as I could all winter just to maintain everyone...

    Hey, not all PNW people think you're crazy! Careful of blanket statements! 20's are fine as long as there's enough snow. It's the sub-zeros we're facing that put me off - at least for outdoor activities.

    Good news is that it's rocketed up to a balmy 9F.

    Ahem, and you aren't facing standing still course marshalling for the cross nationals at 7 am in the morning in this weather . . . .

    Well, CC yesterday while cycling, I saw a jogger in short sleeved T-shirt and long shorts. It was like today, below freezing. Honest, just don't know how some people can do it.

    No snow below the mountains, though. Just bright and sunny today. Dry on ground. Good for a reasonable cycle just have to be careful of possible black ice in early morning.

    Ginny, that is cute pic of horse and donkey among snowfluffies. Zen, a real winter wonderland pic.

    Good point - I should modify my statement to read "the PNW weather weanies west of the Cascades think I'm crazy"!

    Well, we have a foot of snow now; and I will be heading home in an hour to shovel. They say we will get most of our snow tonight; wow, we are going to be buried!

    We got a 3-4" in Denver over the weekend but ytd we've had around 50". The central mtns haven't been so lucky, we're skiing on manmade snow. The storm is supposed to hit the mtns tonight thru Wed. up to 20" and bitterly cold, highs around 10 degrees.

    Love the pics everyone!
    I will have to keep looking at them over this next weekend as we are in for a hot one. Perhaps it will keep me from melting.

    That seems to be the thing to do around here, too: go out in the snow in shorts. I have a friend who likes to snow blow his driveway in a parka, shorts and Ugg boots. I love the guy, but sometimes he's a doofus.

    Zen, his name is Tristan (he came with that name, and I call him my high brow donkey). I board them both south of town in Laramie. They are SO much happier being boarded. I underestimated how important social structure is for equines. Thanks - I think he's cute too (I also think the horse it cute, but the donkey steals the show).

    It is absolutely dumping snow here today. I sure hope I can get to Denver on Friday (I'm going to Hi!)

    Ginny, love your horse and donkey!!!! I keep consoling myself that it may be an early winter, and both my hydrants are already frozen, but at least I don't have do mow!

    Ahhh! Liking winter must be like liking hills. My husband once told me that "if you do enough hills, they lose their power over you". Following his advice, I have actually come to like hills. Maybe I need to work on a better mindset about winter!

    I love this weather.... I LOVE this weather....I LOVE THIS WEATHER...

    Mucho better! We'll call them the PNW WWWs.

    At 5:30 pm last night it was -1F and then dropped to -14F all night. Today's forecast is a sultry 7F/-8F.

    No snow when it's this cold.
