@JT

Whats wrong, there isn't enough slope at Mad River to enjoy the fresh pow.

"Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived,'"

via opensnow: "The heaviest snow will shift south of the I-70 corridor by late Thursday night or Friday morning, but heavy snow will continue for the central mountains through Friday. "

I imagine they'll need to do some control work with the wind hence the closure.

This is turning out to be quite the storm! Nearly 20" at the house so far.
Tomorrow: Wake up early, plow the driveway, shovel the deck and go snort powder for a few hours. :-D

I'll look for you Bill.

Hoosier Pass was probably one of the worst times I've gone over it. Tonight was an insane drive but totally worth it for mañana.

Tomorrows drive is going to suck trying to get up here.

5" in the last 3-4hrs here, over an inch an hour is pretty good. At this rate we'll have 15" overnight by the time the lifts turn tomorrow, yowzers!
