This is pure snow ! Do you know what the street value of this neighborhood is ?

[with apologies to "Better Off Dead"]

Christina and I are experiencing our very first nor'easter and, boy, it's dumping quite a bit of snow. We're at over 2 feet and rising. And the howling wind [gusts of over 50 mph, apparently] makes me all the more grateful that I'm inside and don't need to leave the house for the next few days; I hope all the homeless people managed to make it into a shelter.

It looks like the pipes supplying water to our kitchen tap are frozen -- when you turn on the tap, you get a big fat lot of nothing. Doing some spelunking in the basement didn't reveal much other than a pipe next to a broken window that appeared to be steaming but we couldn't really investigate any further because it's in a locked section of the basement. At least the water is still running in the bathroom and we have power; let's hope that continues to be the case.

Pity the snow can't be put to better use, like snowboarding. It'd be perfect for it -- it's light, dry and fluffy, just the right sort of thing for throwing up roostertails. Meanwhile, my old stomping ground, the Mt. Baker Ski Area, is hurting for snow.

A sucky winter here in the PNW, indeed. It's a dangerous thing, not having any snow. No snowboarding means I'm cooped up inside doing nothing but thinking about motorcycles ... and buying them. And parts. Buying lots of parts.

Still too wet/cold/dark to go ride. C'mon track season! w00t.
