    I am so glad that is you and not me.
    Looking at 70 Friday.
    Texas where we do not see a LOT of the white stuff.
    Salado TX Egg Family: 2 Large and a very well used Mini, added a Mini Max (I'm good for now). 

  • Amen
  • Move to Florida, we're giving condos away and you'll never see snow.

    Sorry Cptn, I love the snow. I wish it was that deep in my backyard.

    I'm ashamed of what I did for a Klondike Bar.

    Woke up this morning to 13-14" of new stuff. The blizzard a week or two ago left 2 feet, plus a couple of dustings since then of 2-8". Very little of it has melted or evaporated.

    I have piles around the perimeter of my patio (hey, gotta shovel out the egg!) that are about 6' deep. Depth in my yard is probably 3' or so. Wouldn't surprise me if I have to replace some shrubs in the Spring. So far, the snowblower has been able to throw it OVER the stuff at the edge of my driveway. If this keeps up, the snow's just gonna hit the wall and bounce back!

    Rumor has it that we have a Nor'easter coming on Tuesday. Ain't that just wonderful? Glad I don't have a flat roof!!! :laugh: The good news is - the roads are clear, as they always are.

    If we say "uncle", will that help?

    EDIT: Just looked at a couple of weather guesses. So far, it appears the rumor of a Nor'easter next week is inaccurate. Hope so.

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    I love the stuff.....just wish the towns would knock down some of the snowbanks....almost got nailed the other day....

    Oh yeah, and if you are afraid to go over 20 mph on a plowed road than please stay home...

    Other than that love the stuff....heading up to NH tonight for some skiing tomorrow...they only got about 4" out of this one but hey, they've had enough that 100% is open....

    Cannon Mtn used to be my favorite. I still have a book of single ride tickets from the 70's. Wonder if they would still honor them.

    if you havent skied in a while the new short funny looking skis are crazy fun, the edge is shaped so they cut as hard as the long boards and you actually can search out ice to attack with them.
  • stikestike Posts: 15,597
    at least when the stuff hits, you can play in it and get actual exercise, right? sledding, kids making forts, family snowball fights...

    down south, when it's 95% humidity and 100 degrees, you just stay inside with the shades drawn and the pretend a/c atmosphere :unsure:

    there's nothing the matter with having four seasons.

    no one sings "i'm dreaming of a humid christmas"

    my first skis were slaloms, 160s. wicked short.

    seemed like you could look left and make a 90 degree turn :laugh:

    i hear they don't make rear entry boots anymore... i had some fischers, among the first, and we used to ski barefoot (i mean, no socks). we'd spray our feet with a quick hit off silicone and slide the boots and and crank them down. no idea WHY, except sometimes the rubber was too difficult to get a foot into. but the silicone was kinda funny thinking back on it

    college skiing was fun... long time ago.

    my langs were just before the rear entry boots, if you sprained your ankle trying to get them on it was a long day, i still wear em :laugh: rent a pair of the newer skis, 165/170, ask for an aggressive ski, they react as well as 200's on big slopes but you can easily manuever on the center ice trails
  • i came from the school of "SHORT SKIS SUCK, LONG SKIS TRUCK"!! still have my 205s down in the basement (a pair of Kastle "ice" skis that didn't turn worth a dime, but were great for blue ice days, they would hold an edge on glare ice with no sweat.....and a pair of K2 5500s that were just the best cruisers made 20 years ago...)....been ten years since i've been on skis, really need to go back out!! ..and yeah, i had a pair of re-entry nordica's....most comfortable boots i ever owned ....crank em down at 8am, and didn't unbuckle them till 4pm. . .they were great! ....then got a pair of san marco's that i also loved (still have them)...very low to the ground for good 'feel', and with a pair of orthotics in them, as comfortable as any other boot i ever tried ....back in the early 80s i was a master boot fitter at a big ski shop here. ..
  • fishlessmanfishlessman Posts: 21,545
    the way the new ones are shaped they dig in like a long board, my newer 170's are more like an old 210 the way they cut in, you do lose some of the small spacing of the long boards but gain control at speed, i was never graceful on the slopes, fast and reckless was more like it :laugh: me and my brother would look for the scariest rocky ice trail and go for it :laugh: anybody can ski in the snow :laugh: my big ole k2 slaloms are resting now in the attic, someday to become a fishing sled. my langes hurt like anything, unclamp at the bottom of the trail, clamp them back up top, maybe make an adjustment when all feeling goes away, i hate loose boots
  • crghc98crghc98 Posts: 1,006
    down to 170's myself...newer shape actually "want" to turn...almost hard to ski straight...

    Fishless....haven't tried the snow skates yet....I know a couple of people that don't even own full size ski's anymore....may have to try them.
