    You can ask her. She is on this forum quite regularly, just not here (try the cat lovers section).

    The one week I was there (Oahu), it wasn't the heat that tried to kill me but the 95% humidity every day.

    That would even feel pretty good to me right now....I don't think it made it to 50 today. I believe the days begin getting longer each day now, so it's all uphill from here.

    Yeah, I think today was a few seconds longer than the day before. The start of longer days is the only reason I look forward to Winter Solstice.

    Guess I shouldn't be bitching about temps in the 50's-60's....those numbers were your highs many days last "summer" if I remember correctly.

    I remember when I first moved to Arizona (Tucson, 1972) and listened to some of the locals bitching about "cold weather" (50s in December/January) that I just laughed my ass off and wondered if they could even survive sub-zero. Whether one is hot or cold depends on what part of the country you are used to and how old and tired you have become. Fifteen years ago, I didn't bitch as much as I do today. And when I was an active skier, I prayed for more snow, but now that I limp back and forth to the barns, I pray this shit will go the fuck away. Oh well...

    Strange how the weather guessers can't get their shit together. One site says we're going to have 1/2" accumulation this weekend and another, for the exact same time frame, says 4" and now you show me a storm watch that says 6" with blizzard winds. Well, that's Friday night through Sunday morning and, at the moment, I am only worrying about tomorrow daytime, which is partly to mostly sunny and I have to do the monthly shopping circuit. I'm driving all day, so it damn well better not snow on my groceries.

    By the way, we didn't hit your 32 degree guess, but only got up to 29 today. Sigh...

    Then my job is done and I can now curl up and die with a smile on my old face. :D
    The silly thing is that they all have access to the same equipment (radar, satellite, computers, etc.) but not a one of them has a clue what will really happen.

    Well, it will either be 50 (or 60 or 70) or dead calm. We have had very little wind the past couple weeks, which is EXTREMELY unusual for here and this time of year, so I'm not placing any bets on this weekend. We'll get what we get and you know I'll keep you posted. ;)

    It's just pouring outside now, and I had my heart set on heading back to the mountains in the morning....guess I'll be doing something else, like nothing.

    Oh oh, your old phart age is showing. I walked to the barn and back (200 yards?) and it felt like 20 miles. But then there is a distinct possibility that I am in ever so slightly worse shape. :rolleyes:

    Does that mean you're going to bed now?

    Rained most of the day, and it was pouring about 2 hrs ago.....not sure when this water will head east. Regardless, I'll hit the mountains tomorrow and do some panning at a spot I found that has a lot of small flake gold, and a creek nearby.

    I see they "revised" your forecast to an inch or two, although the wind will prolly be the worst of it all.

    Just work up from a cat nap and saw the computer was still on, so figured I'd check in. Had a particularly long and very hard day, so I need to go get in bed properly now (much pain, extremely fatigued, etc.). I'll fill you in on the details tomorrow night after you have struck it rich on your hike. Sorry I'm too tired to sit up any longer tonight.

    Hey, Uncle, that's what old pharts do. I could bore people to death BSing about the farm to people who don't even know what a cow is, so us old guys pick a common subject: weather, and that way, we can bore each other with something we all know a little bit about. :) So, hang around awhile and talk to us about something more interesting and maybe we can get at least an hour worth of some other kind of conversation. :D

    Oh, by the way, we got two inches of fresh snow this morning. o_O

    The Abelian Grape

    A mathematical joke is a form of humor which relies on aspects of mathematics or a stereotype of mathematicians. The humor may come from a pun, or from a double meaning of a mathematical term, or from a lay person's misunderstanding of a mathematical concept. Mathematician and author John Allen Paulos in his book Mathematics and Humor described several ways that mathematics, generally considered a dry, formal activity, overlaps with humor, a loose, irreverent activity: both are forms of "intellectual play," both have "logic, pattern, rules, structure," and both are "economical and explicit."

    Some performers combine mathematics and jokes to entertain and/or teach math.

    Humor of mathematicians may be classified into the esoteric and exoteric categories. Esoteric jokes rely on the intrinsic knowledge of mathematics and its terminology. Exoteric jokes are intelligible to the outsiders, and most of them compare mathematicians with representatives of other disciplines or with common folk.

    Some jokes use a mathematical term with a second non-technical meaning as the punchline of a joke.

    Q. What's purple and commutes?
    A. An abelian grape. (A pun on abelian group)

    Occasionally, multiple mathematical puns appear in the same jest:

    When Noah sends his animals to go forth and multiply, a pair of snakes replies "We can't multiply, we're adders" – so Noah builds them a log table.

    And, oh, by the way, it quit snowing, at least for awhile... :)

    10 PM (MDST) and it is snowing like a sumbits with wind about 25-30 mph (not quite a blizzard yet, but the wind is supposed to be much higher by morning).

    There was SNOW on the mountain tops today, but it was in the mid 50's where I was trying to change a FLAT tire....:devil:...in the middle of nowhere, about 25 miles to the nearest maintained road. What a nightmare, the jack kept sinking into the wet sand-dirt, and I couldn't find any rocks in the vicinity to support the bottom of the jack....that fiasco turned into a 3 hr affair...:sad:

    I look at my spare tire, it says "THIS IS ONLY A TEMPORARY TIRE, DO NOT USE LONGER THAN NECESSARY"

    I look at the four tires on the truck, it's the exact same tire with a different rim, even Michelin....now why in gods name would they go through all that nonsense printing a label to affix to a fucking spare tire?
