By beckysdad on Jan 13, 2015 at 6:03 PM

WTH...I look at your weather forecast and the numbers all have little plus signs next to them. Aren't there rules against that? Thanks for the Gratz.

How NOT to fail at Fetch Gratz!!!

Nah...the wonders of a tripod...

By mamawalker on Jan 9, 2015 at 1:25 PM

Aww! Is that beckysdad's hand holding the spatula AND the camera?!?

By mamawalker on Jan 5, 2015 at 3:17 PM

It's 41 degrees right now. It's melting...melting! Oh, what a world...what a world!

By beckysdad on Jan 3, 2015 at 5:38 PM

Ohai back at ya. I see you're at a balmy 8 degrees right now. I can almost smell the coconut oil from all the sunbathers. Consider that face skritched...and I'll throw in some giblets as a treat for her a bit later. I've got a chicken ready to go on the grill. Do you prefer dark meat or light?

By mamawalker on Jan 3, 2015 at 3:26 PM

Just a fly-by ohai from the Winter Wonderland!! Skritch that doll-face of yours from mamadub!!

By beckysdad on Dec 31, 2014 at 12:24 PM

Thanks, Linder. I hope 2015 is one of your best!

By mamawalker on Dec 31, 2014 at 12:19 PM

Your friendship is a blessing to me! May 2015 be a blessing to us all!!

LOL!! Maybe if it was -23 there, you would reconsider letting Becky on the bed!! They don't call it a 3-Dog Night for nothin; !!!

By beckysdad on Dec 30, 2014 at 5:09 PM

Do your cats sleep with you? Becky has her own bed. We've only shared a bed on one trip when we rented a house in Tahoe for my folks' 60th wedding anniversary. It was kind of a nice treat but I'm old school when it comes to dogs on furniture. I have no problem getting down on the floor to wrestle and cuddle with her though. I'd imagine it's a whole different proposition to keep cats off a bed, though.

By mamawalker on Dec 30, 2014 at 1:09 PM

LOL! Aw, you just have to have the right outdoor gear and at least two cats (or one purty black Lab) at night!! And I'm not a completely silly woman. I don't spend much time out in THAT kind of cold. Besides, here in the computer lab, the picture window looks right at the Pintlars, so it's kind of like watching a video and staying warm at the same time!!

At 44 below I fear it would only take the slightest of jostling to shatter my frosticles. I have no doubt it's lovely though. I'm thinking a good HD video of those scenes would be far more comfy. I'm sure it wouldn't do the scenery justice but it would be far toastier. I like to think of myself as fairly hardy but I'm not convinced I'm cut out for -44.

By mamawalker on Dec 30, 2014 at 12:12 PM

Looks lovely!!! I don't want to aggravate your frosticles outbreak but it did get down to -26 with a wind chill of -44. And that was at 7AM!! But it's fantastically clear and the Pintlars were on fire with the sunrise!! We have lots of snow and it has that 'squeaky' quality when you walk on it. So, I'm a pretty happy camper!

No doubt about it; Gore is a stud. I wonder if he'll be back next year. This season was so disappointing. I'm glad it's over so now I'm cheering on the DUBS!! Our local sports station gave us a nice treat over the holiday. I hated having to listen to Buck do the play by play for the World Series. He's an ass. There was about a five second delay between our regular crew's coverage on the radio and the was ahead. In any case, they synched up the audio from the radio broadcast with the video from Fox and rebroadcast it over the holidays. I can finally watch the series with MY guys calling the game!!!! I think I got a case of frosticles just reading your note about the weather there. This should make you feel better to see how I spent my day.

By mamawalker on Dec 29, 2014 at 3:31 PM

Ch-ch-changes!! So, it's SportsballMonday on the blog and Evan said farewell to I made a gif to give props to Gore and I'll be damned if they didn't tag it for FP!! Must be some Niners fans over at SenorGif! PS...Can you say snow? I can't because my lips are frozen. Snowing and blowing and -2 right now. -28 forecast for tonight...hope there's no wind!

By mamawalker on Dec 28, 2014 at 12:36 PM

Amen!! And thanks!! :D

By beckysdad on Dec 28, 2014 at 12:04 PM

LOLCat gratz...all is right with the world again.

By mamawalker on Dec 21, 2014 at 12:16 PM

The most JOYFUL of Holidays to you and yours! I am so glad that you are my friend!

By mamawalker on Dec 14, 2014 at 3:55 PM

Awesome!! Two of my favorites at once!! Thanks!

By beckysdad on Dec 14, 2014 at 3:47 PM

That was fun. Did you happen to watch this video that was linked off that? fun stuff

By mamawalker on Dec 14, 2014 at 3:28 PM

Wow. Some Elton I hadn't seen before: (HeeHeeHee!)

By beckysdad on Dec 13, 2014 at 11:07 AM

Yeah, that might obscure the view just a tad...

By mamawalker on Dec 13, 2014 at 11:04 AM

LOL! Can't SEE the mountains right now...can barely see the back yard. It's REALLY coming down!!

By beckysdad on Dec 13, 2014 at 11:00 AM

I'm fortunate in that unstable ground isn't an issue in my neighborhood and while we expected heavy winds, there were no trees blown down close by. Early last week I was thinking about a short trip over to Big Basin State Park but I'll have to wait on that. The roads up in the Santa Cruz Mts. often get minor slides. Flooding isn't a problem anywhere close to me either. It's a pretty stable neighborhood about a mile from where you begin the inclines into the mountains. I hesitate to call them mountains as they top out about 3000 feet but that's what they're called. There are some areas down in SoCal that perpetually have to worry about mudslides. I don't envy them at all. I'll bet the mountains above you look amazing right now.

By mamawalker on Dec 13, 2014 at 10:27 AM

Wow. Having been through a couple of those types of storms while living in Orange County, I sympathize. Hope you haven't had any tree mishaps or collapses or landslides in your neighborhood. We have a couple inches of snow on the ground right now and it's gonna snow all day. Not too cold though so the snow is wet and heavy. It will probably all run off by tomorrow afternoon :(

By beckysdad on Dec 12, 2014 at 4:19 PM

Sounds like today would have been a good day to get out and stock up for you. You definitely have us beat for weather extremes down here. That said, in San Jose we had nearly 3 1/2 inches of rain yesterday which represents about 25% of our average annual rainfall.

By mamawalker on Dec 12, 2014 at 4:02 PM

More fun weather facts: Today's high was 53F! Last month we were in minus number highs! And tomorrow's forecast is 70% chance of snow. Gotta be on your toes around here!

By beckysdad on Dec 11, 2014 at 3:15 PM

I've seen a good number of their videos. The music is very good and the video work adds an awful lot. Thanks for sending it along.
