In case you are curious:  we snapped a nine day sunny spell with 6-8" this morning.  There's been wolves on a carcass down near Warm Springs (heard them howling while we were skiing).  They're thinking about shutting down the Post Office.   The school kids went on an animal-tracking field trip with the Good Doctor.  I had a crampon fall off half way up an ice climb (2nd ing).   And there were two moose on Broadway yesterday...   So it goes.


  1. All your snowblowing pics are awesome.

  2. Didja have those stupid flat metal pieces that go from the strap to the front bail? The sole purpose of that piece is to make your crampon occasionally pop off. Cut it off with some tin snips.
