^ The Davis bicyclers are out in force taking advantage of the weather baddy. They love it. But we need rain and snow quick. Food prices are on the rise because of this drought and I don't think this is very good sign for another Squaw Valley winter Olympic bid. No snow in Jan! Heavens to murgatroid! :cry:

That's one of the most filmed rocks ever. It's in every B western, I think it's on the backlot at Paramount. As for Captain James T. Kirk's canon, Mythbusters busted that myth. :wink:

To be exact (or, to be Spockian)

Vasquez Rocks Natural Area Park is a 932-acre park located in the Sierra Pelona Mountains, in northern Los Angeles County, California. It is in the Agua Dulce between the Antelope Valley and the Santa Clarita Valley north of Los Angeles and seen easily by motorists driving the Antelope Valley Freeway (CA 14).


As for weather, the wind-chill is -21C (-6F) right now. Tomorrow morning it will be -30C (-22F)

Back when we were voting on the SST in the early 70's, my dad bought a piece of Antelope Valley. The vote failed and all that's left is a picture of my dad standing in the middle of nowhere on "his" piece of Antelope Valley. Lots of sage brush and jackrabbits, with no water. It took him years to be able to laugh at that folly! :mrgreen:

Temperatures dropped to below zero C for the first time in a quite a few weeks here. I'm convinced it's part of God's plan to fuck up my life (I only believe in the God of Job and that only when misfortune occurs).

I'm planning to fly to England next Friday. Every time I fly (which is not often) some weather disaster occurs. The last three occasions were...
a) black ice, delaying the bus to the airport and then the plane thus causing us to miss our connecting train and then having to stay the night in a crummy hotel in London with unwashed sheets.
b) that volcanic eruption that caused the cancellation of all flights, but only after I'd just arrived in Hamburg airport (about 200 Km away).
c) a connecting flight that was supposed to take me to Toulouse which was cancelled due to strong winds, forcing me to travel to Frankfurt, where the flight to Toulouse was almost cancelled as the plane wasn't working properly, our salvation being one of the baggage handlers who pointed out to the pilot that the plane parked next to ours was empty and in perfect working condition.

I hear stories like this all the time, but amazingly in all the hundreds of flights I have been on the last 5 years only a handfull have been delayed and only 2 by weather... :smoke:

They were waiting for you...they radio'd ahead when you were comin' in... "Yup, Cap's on the plane, OK to close now."

Your baggage shipped to Buffalo though, didn't it :shock:

So our meeting in the south of France, beside the swimming pool with a body double of Bardot in a bikini serving Dom Perignon is off, is it?

My place in the south of France is getting hard rain and some snow on the mountain tops. They had major flash flooding in the Var (on the mediteranean) last weekend...BUT!
The -35°C windchill baffoonery they're getting in my home country (Canada) right now makes me soooooo glad I live on this side of the Gulf Stream.

I really enjoy the changes of season, when the prairie comes to life in the spring on the High plains it is great.

I'd happily trade that for the 30 degree temps we are experiencing here every day for the rest of my life. I live in the south to avoid this kind of weather. Ready for winter to be done and over.
