Keith, I am nowhere as good as you are at estimating, I guess I could count back to post #800 and find out.

how high are those mountains? Just curious.

Down in Western Oregon where I am from originally, they are yapping about cold weather also and snow levels down near the Willamette valley floor. Meanwhile here in Austin we are expecting around 78-80F this weekend

I have a selection of mountains here for you to pick from....

A local favorite is Mt. Benson which has road access to the top and is used for hiking...it's just a bump in the ground at 3,356 feet.

Mt. Juliet, 5,335, Marble mountain, 5,778, Crown mountain, 6,056, Mt. Phillips, 5,650, Mt. Russell, 5,715, King's Peak, 6,775, Mt. Abel, 5,978, Mt. Adam, 5,673, Mt. Mitchell, 6,043, Mt. Washington, which is a well developed ski area where the 2010 winter olympic skiers did their training is 5,217, Mt. Victoria, 7,096, Mt. Elliott, 5,108, Mt. Cobb, 6,660 and the grand daddy of them all is Mt. Golden Hinde at 7,207 feet.

...and by the way, anyone who is unkind enough to mention temperatures anywhere near 80F while we are about to get dumped on with the white stuff should be shot, hung, drawn and quartered...not necessarily in that order.

We're getting dumped on with s...s...s...sn...sno...snow next Thursday (turkey day), or so they're telling us. So I'll have to agree with you and I think you have it in the right order.

I just checked on Accuweather...and the snow is due here in less than two hours.

Gotta go and make sure the wood box is filled right up at the cabin.

We have nearly a foot on the ground and looking for more in the next few days.
The Ski Hill needs it.

Don't worry...I think you have plenty on the way.

There's an Arctic air mass moving down and as soon as this next storm gets over to your way the ski hill will be loving it.

What are your temperatures getting up to in the daytime now?

-9C as we speak. Might get a few degrees warmer closer to 4 o'clock or so, before the sun goes down behind the hill.

As the big cleanup progresses upstairs, and as the wood becomes available, I am making the window sills for the master bedroom. These are of arbutus, and I'm just hoping that there will be enough to do all ten of the sills.

No...it's not an optical illusion...they are curved. Lord knows, I've tried to make my saw cut straight and it just won't have anything to do with it!

I guess I'd better quit whining about our +2C right now then.

But at least your cold is a drier cold isn't it? I remember thinking when I lived in the Yukon, than 0F wasn't even that cold. But it was so very dry up there, almost desert like conditions. As soon as you get to the coast it gets into the old bones much quicker.

Yes, but not as dry as -40C in Alberta...

Well so much for calling our mountains, mountains, I don't know how tall ours are but they aren't as tall as any of those. But our bumps are pretty, uh kinda, maybe, now I ain't sure anymore, I feel crushed.
