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!!

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.

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 :(

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.

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!

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.

Totally getting into ThePianoGuys! And this is just one of the guys:

Be the chilidog! :D Glad you liked decorating. That was just fun trying to get my idea to fit the page!

By beckysdad on Dec 10, 2014 at 1:53 PM

Glad you like the chilidawg...I'm loving the strangely festive decorating accident LOL.

Hah...just found it...big fan of the show as I have a thing for LL.

By beckysdad on Dec 7, 2014 at 10:56 AM

Why, thankee, Mama. I'm sure that will make you very popular with people at the mall! I have to admit that song played in my head for the entire walk Becky and I just took...not so bad akshooly.

By beckysdad on Nov 30, 2014 at 4:49 PM

Wow, that's a big swing. Are they giving you some snow to go along with it? We're actually getting a bit of rain. I thought we'd forgotten how.

By mamawalker on Nov 30, 2014 at 1:32 PM

Another Montana Psycho Weather Report: Yesterday at 6AM it was 42F! TODAY at 6AM it was -4F!

By mamawalker on Nov 26, 2014 at 4:35 PM

You're welcome, David! We will have a good day tomorrow. A white snowed 14 inches yesterday!!

By beckysdad on Nov 26, 2014 at 4:20 PM

Thanks for the holiday shout out. I hope you have a great T-Day.

By mamawalker on Nov 26, 2014 at 3:31 PM

Gobble, Gobble!! Much love, linder, Six & Magic

By beckysdad on Nov 20, 2014 at 4:36 PM

Those were some great shots and a cool story, too. I love hiking stories like that. That trek Marshall took was insane. Even in my prime hiking days I couldn't cover half what he did. Thanks for sending the link along.

By mamawalker on Nov 20, 2014 at 4:20 PM

Maybe your computer can give you a good resolution on these great shots of the Bob Marshall Wilderness!!

By beckysdad on Nov 12, 2014 at 4:48 PM

That qualifies as significant chillification. I'd have to actually get some long pants. I think I'll pass...maybe stay inside and look at pictures of the cold instead. Supplies are definitely necessary though. I hope the nom run was uneventful.

By mamawalker on Nov 12, 2014 at 3:45 PM

11/12/14 @ 5:35AM in Butte, Montana, USA, No. America, Earth, Milky Way: -18F degrees with a wind chill of -35F. It was too dang cold to go out and look at the scenery and yet...I had to go to Wal-Mart to lay in supplies because it is supposed to be -25F tonight!! Did I mention it's a little chilly? :D

By beckysdad on Nov 10, 2014 at 9:10 PM

I'd take your scenery but you can keep the cold. I guess they go hand in hand though. In reality, there are lots of people that have to put up with similar cold that don't have the lovely vistas so you've got it pretty good. Enjoy!

By mamawalker on Nov 10, 2014 at 1:21 PM

Yay!! Half an inch of snow this morning, 9 degrees with a wind chill of -5!! It's officially my kind of weather.

That's fine for the bandwagon fans but you know I've been around a while. I prefer my Giants gear a bit more vintage.
