Well it rained last night. That is a step in the right direction.

I'm sending job apps to almost every resort in the state. Someone has to flip burgers at the 10,000ft lunch spots.

Winter is about 6 weeks late. I'm ready already.

we're looking at a possibility over the next couple days, but will probably just end up with rain/snow mix. Temps have been pretty mild midday. Hopefully we can get at least some dustings of snow to move in for Nov. 15 rifle opener.

You're going to commute from the Springs? I've considered this, but can't make it pay with the commute (and childcare) added in.

The ground is nowhere near cold enough here to maintain snow. There is about 4" on the ground right now that will be gone soon.

The woman is nagging at me to order her some skis. I'm holding off until we get settled in to our new place. I don't see the hurry anyways given that the snow is still some ways off for us.

We're probably going to visit da UP again this February, to coincide with the MTU Winter Carnival.
