While it's snowing we're having a huge lightning and thunder storm. Messin' with the internet though.

Good thing I'm casting indoors... I could get a chill and catch a cold. :whistling:

Snow is rolling in off the mountains here too. Hooray hot lead!

I'll start my story by saying, I work 35 miles from my house. The drive is ok for the first 10 minutes until I start up the first mountain. About halfway up that 1st one the weather does a complete 180. You can bet your butt if it's not snowing at my house it is halfway up Cooper's rock! Anyhow, 3 years ago while on my way to work at 11:00pm I get to the halfway point of Cooper's Rock. 1st I hit rain then the blinding fog. I slow down to 20 mph. 1/2 mile later rain turns to heavy snow which had already covered the interstate with 3 inches of snow. So now it's snowing, the road is covered and it's foggy as hell...just when I think it can get no worse...the lightning storm started! Now I'm still going 20 mph, all the other cars are stopped/wrecked or stuck. Nervous is an understatement of how I was feeling but it was the coolest thing I've ever witnessed! Fog, snow and lightning all together gives you an errie(sp) feeling!

It's been summer here until today. 78 degrees in Denver yesterday, Sunday at our black powder shoot it was 76.

Right now there's 2 inches of global warming sitting on the deck. To put that in perspective for you flatlanders I have more than that in my freezer.

Based on your history of making sport of me just what makes you think you're going to be around long enough to get old? :whistling:

Where the hell did I put my road atlas? Never mind... I'll use the GPS.

Sucks real bad here too. Have the windows open for a cross breeze. I wished I wasn't so damn lazy I would go pick another 10lbs of tomatoes out of the garden. Sucks to have two growing seasons per year. Crap now I need to get bacon for all these fresh organic greenbeans. :yawn:

Snow is nice in those made for TV Christmas movies where the whole family gets snowed in in their mountain log home with lots of hot chocolate. Other than that, it pretty much sucks.

Robin, I'm with ya. We planted tomatoes, bell peppers and bush beans two weekends ago to go with the strawberries that made it thru the summer from last year. I love fresh veggies and can't wait. Guess this is the tradeoff for having weather thats too hot to hunt in.

Got that right my friend. Can't wait until it gets cold so I can plant my Collard greens, carrots, onions and broccoli.
Do you have dedicated beds for your strawberries?<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>

I'd love to have a garden, but unfortunately I would starve to death.

So I'll have to shop w/ the mountain man... I feel so important now...

I have to shop... if I relied on my shooting ability for meat I'd be a vegetarian. :crying:

One upside to having a real winter is not having to mow the lawn, at least that's what my 15 yr old son says. :cool:

No dedicated beds. We reloaded two sections of some perrenial beds to make up a veggie garden. The strawberries were an afterthought last year by my better half. By the looks of things this morning, those strawberries will likely be squibs at best, quite possibly misfires. They didn't take too kindly to her reloading them in a different location. We'll see. I'll throw some WTF powder on them later this week to see if it helps any.

Sorry Jack. :arg:
It takes 2 years to established a nice strawberry bed and to work the soil. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>

Thirty seconds in the produce isle at Safeway. Of course it takes another two minutes to get to the dairy section for a can of whipped cream... but that has multiple uses. :whistling:

You silly mountain man you. <o:p></o:p>
PM me your address and I will send you some seeds when you thaw out for next year my friend. Do you have soil by chance up there in the stratosphere. <o:p></o:p>
I have some killer pepper seeds too.<o:p></o:p>

Yup...that's the one. Different world from the Rock on Eastward.
