Well pack the deck of the next Super Tanker with as much snow as will stay there...And ship it this way.   It could sell for as much as the oil does.
 
California should be making headlines...with this drought, cattle aren't getting range feed, because the grass is not the grass they need.
 
And come spring, the Agri Business that relys on Aquifers will be paying rates (rates go up as Aquifers go down) that will kill some growers.  And we have no snow in the Sierra,  that's the water bank, that feeds the lakes as they get drained to the Agri irrigation, and the snow melt replenishes the lakes.

We've hardly had a winter here so far. I've just seen somebody walking their dog, wearing just a tee shirt. January the 9th and wearing a tee shirt? That's not right. It would be a nice day for a ride, if the bike wasn't in bits right now.

My how the door swings! Last year they were jumping up and down around here because they didn't know what to do with all the water we got - now I can hear the parched Earth drought talk already. It just never ends... shakehead

We Canucks are a forgiving lot, to really not that much snow on most of our roads, to so many passes to the west, north or east have been closed.

I know RD was up with his reason of this being a COLD WINTER, by not the best of info.  This has been a mild winter to us, BUT when listening to the TV man this is going to be a COLD WINTER, so we are assumin it might be cold in February or March.

With the busted up ribs, tack on the left hip that was repaired some yrs ago & since crushed by the safety of the seat belt. I felt I would have to count on the All Wheel Drive of my Subaru.  So far all has worked fine.  To even some h/gun shooters making it up & down the steep road to the range on a two wheel drive only.  Which tells you that there is not that much snow.

STILL according to the Trans Canada Highway people they have had to close some parts to many of the snow slides that have taken over some parts of the roads.  Tack on some cross crountry skiing people to also one chap that came down a NO SKIING section lost his life.  Both of the deaths were Americans flowen to the take off point & that is costly.  So far (touch wood) no snowmobile people have been killed in avalanches like so many were last year, bur then the season is not over yet is it?


Remember all the others on the road are crazy & out to kill you.

Smitty the snow pack is very unstable in lots of areas in the Caribous and Monashees, there's more awareness but it only takes one group to get caught. The mountain sleds go so much farther back into the alpine backcountry that we used to it's no wonder they trigger slides. AK Duc you guys are getting our share and then some, it's bone dry here in most cases when we normally have a nice deep blanket by now. Even if we do get lots of snow in the regions that are so bare, there will be little absorbtion come spring as the frost is going to cause the melt to run off rather than sink in. That's better than no runoff, but not what we need to replenish the water table.


I never get lost, there's always lots of people telling me where to go!
