Tehachapi, right? My bro left Fresno friday afternoon with his family to go dirt bike riding in Mojave, CA. Don't know how much dirt there was to ride on though? He wanted me to go with him to hang out, but I wisely declined. Driving along and pulling a trailer up and down the pass in these conditions is not my idea of fun.

Tehachapi it is, the 58 was actually shut down all last night, just opened this morning, looked like the traffic was backed up from Mojave to Bakersfield. Not a fun pass to go through when the weather is like this.
A computer once beat me at chess, but it was no match for me at kick boxing.

Six inches of the white stuff that last 36 hrs in Edmonton area (Alberta). The sun came out and the kids and thier friends made the most of it making a snowman and snow fort this afternoon. Their mitts and snowpants are soaked, but they are all smiles.

Ok, so I don't officially live here but two weeks of freezing is enough for me.
The bossman says he needs me to take a little trip north to Alaska. Sounds fun, I hear Anchorage is kind of neat.
Oh, he says I won't be going to Anchorage but to some place that no one has ever heard of. I leave sunny Houston and it's pleasant 89 F, I arrive at the destination it's 12F. I check into the hotel and the clerk tells me it's rather warm. What??? The next morning I am driving to work and I notice the thermometer reads -7F and the wind has surpassed "brisk". Oh by the way, the wife shoots me an email saying she in the kids spent the entire day by the pool and got a little sunburn.
I also notice that when I leave the hotel for dinner, or whatever, I am all bundled up and the locals have a sweatshirt on. :-) How do you guys do it??
I have come to the realization that you "snow people" are tough.
BTW, I have discovered Alaskan micro-brew. . . maybe I need to stay a couple more days. :-)
Cheers to all

it seems like you answered your own question!

Who's the more foolish, the fool or the fool who follows him?
