    Seeing photos like that make me ever more so grateful that I live in N. CA. where it very rarely ever snows. I used to live in South Dakota, and had my fill of snow, snow, blizzards, snow and wind for winter and tornadoes with oppressive humidity and 9 gazillion june bugs in the non-winter months.

    Earthquakes, fire, drought, and floods I can handle!

    Thank you, Jason, for the updates.

    Oh, I’ve been remiss. I forgot to write and thank you again for my winning copy of Stargate Atlantis: Season 4 Official Companion. It arrived here safe and sound a few days ago. The Pegasus stargate must be down, it showed up in the US mail.


    Best wishes for a joyous Holiday Season!

    Morjana, Brrr is right, cause it has stayed below 32 degrees for like five days now. Have only seen this much snow in this quick a period here in Seattle once before, but when I lived in Colorado, it happened quite often. It started snowing sometime after 1:00 a.m. and when I left work at 6:00 a.m. there was about 6 inches or so. It ended up snowing about 9 inches, the bed of my truck was almost completely full.

    Once again, you are welcome for the updates and I’m glad the book arrived safe and sound. I’m wondering when we will get mail again, didn’t get any yesterday. It’s putting a crimp in my plan to try and watch Battlestar Galactica from season via Netflix. The discs that were supposed to arrive yesterday didn’t cause of the snow.

    Anyway, best wishes to you as well and have a Safe and Happy Holiday Season!
