Tweaky de la Corduroy

"Rolled Ballroom Flat" is generally the best phrase to describe surface conditions November through May at Waterville Valley. Yesterday morning was no exception. In a second mini-outing seven months since my patella trauma, things were fine on the hill - not so great a few hours later. Manageable pain for sure.

Walking the Dogs

Walking the dogs is one way to combat the cold, short days of January.

The Datacube Wiki

Dave published the Datacube Wiki Page. I suspect I'll spend some cycles editing bits and pieces of evidence, er, minutia.

No Sick Puppy

Liona is all better and so we go for a walk on a nice winter day.

Randy and Chris

It has been four years without Randy and a decade without Chris. Life goes on. Their spirit strong as ever. Missing them both deeply.

Ski Day Number "N"

I'm not sure when it started, but there has been a tradition of ski day accounting for as long as I can remember. More is generally better. The excuses for a low score are usually lame. "Work" isn't always a lame excuse. Injury is a good excuse. And 6 months and two weeks following my patella-bashing, I took first turns of the season down Mt. Techumsa. Not so bad. The steeper the terrian, the less pain. That will come in handy out west.

Merry New Year

"Merry New Year", says Billy Ray in the classic "Trading Places" "Oh, ho, ho, thank you for correcting my English which stinks"! While there was no gorilla-suit-wearing in our household last night, it was at least relaxing. Today the snow comes yet again to start off 2008.
