+1

Colorado "Natives" that call themselves "Natives" since I usually think of natives as indigenous people, ie. native americans

I don't know any other state other than CO where native born people make such a big stink about being "native" here :lol:


Also
1. Lack of snow this year
2. La Nina sucks

1. People who care way to much about how other people act.
2. Slow drivers who don't leave enough space in front of the next slow driver to allow other drivers room to safely pass one car at a time.
3. People sooooo stupid they think helmets take away style points.
They forget that some crisis is necessary to hone skill. "Near misses," those brief encounters with the reality of mortality, are great learning tools if properly approached. -Denali Climbers Guidebook

Amen to that thought. It's all going south or north. :(
Mountains cast spells on me - Why, because of the way Earth-heaps lie, should I be Chocked by joy mysteriously; stilled or drunken-gay? Why should a brown hill trail Tug at my feet to go? Why should a boggy swale Tune my heart to a nameless tale Mountain marshes know?

Even more annoying when they keep airing it during a significant winter drought in the high country.

That's it!

"Really?".... Not 'really?" but ... whatever... I think there may be a video of it from last year.
