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!
Buddy, you can't make yourself do anything simple can you? They are beautiful though Keith, they go with the rest of your fantastic home. Maybe you need to have a long talk with your saw but it probably wouldn't do any good.

Do you ever get use to all that snow? Got a question, at -40C would that = 14.4F? Any way you slice it, that is cold.

I'm not going to tell you what the temps are here, I am just going to ask you, did you know it was 63F here right now?

Not quite Jim:

-40 is -40 no matter which one you pick.

If you take 40C at 1.8 x 40 that equals 72F. Now, if you take the 72 away from 32 F, you would get -40F, which is the same as -40C.

Either way it's damn cold. Just ask jl, he'll tell you!

I tried that Jim...even put it in the corner all by itself for mis-behaving. Still didn't do any good.

We should get jl to give us a few mountain heights up his way. His mountains make these look like kiddie runs for toboggans.

It's 82.4F in Mazatlan right now, and it's only 64.4 in Sydney Australia.

We won't see that until next summer...unless I take an awfully long drive.

Wow, let me think about that for a while, I am really confused. OK 0C= 32F, right? -1c would be 1.8 degrees F less than 32F right?

There are a bunch of hills around here that are in the 8200 ft class, which may seem tall, but the real value is in the 'closeness' of those hills.
They appear close enough to reach out and touch in spots. And the valley is quite tight, so the slopes are very steep in spots.
And the town site is at about 2500 ft elevation, so the vertical difference isn't all that it seems to be in spots.

Yes, it is gorgeous. I'll try to get a few pictures next time I'm outside.

Jim, you can figure the difference by doing Celsius to F: 9/5 current Celsius temp + 32, to get Fahrenheit equivalent, or inveresely, 5/9 current Fahreheit temp - 32, or you can do the "Canadian Cheat" method to find F from C, double C, and add 30. Sorry 35 years as a high school teacher, takes awhile to wear off =====8^)

Keith, snow started about 6:15, and since we are at the 700 foot level (notice I said foot), it is heavy! SWMBO, is going to take 'Yota 4x4 pu to work at hospital in Nanaimo tomorrow at 6:30, and I already put hubs in and transfer case in 4 high for her so all she has to do is drive, and me, well, I am going to be the "Devil's Advocate", and drive the Matrix down to Victoria tomorrow early to pick up youngest daughter and her Fiance, so hope it doesn't turn into a 'whiteknuckler'! But I think I did learn some things from 10 years in the far North,..I just hope I can remember some of it, but if not, watch for me on the 6 o'clock news ==8^)

Yep, we got bumps here for sure. I sure would love to see some pictures of your mountains. Thanks jl
