    Was once trapped with a bus load of marching band people because of avalanche danger. We departed from the bus with a small dixieland band to entertain the other trapped motorists. They objected to the loud sounds, especially the bass drum.

    You gonna buy it if I do? Just kidding. I guess I'm used to the view out my window and don't need to paint it, I have a lot of subject matter right around my house. Then there are the people asking me to do paintings, that keeps me busy.
    After I showed those pictures of the snow, there was maybe 6-8 inches more snow. How do I know? I had cleared my driveway with the snow blower in the early afternoon yesterday, then this morning went out to do it again. The amount that had been added to my driveway was about what J said, then there was the pile left by the snow plow last night....another 33 inches or, almost a meter for my metric friends.

    Any respected mountaineer or ski patroller will tell you not to make any sound when and where avalanches are prevalent. It is known that ski patrollers will blast them before they become monstrous and an extreme detrimental hazard.

    While I certainly can't ski now and couldn't sell my old wooden straight ski poles, they certainly are now handy to get about here now.
