75 MORE DAYS!!!!!
« on: August 29, 2002, 09:12:40 AM »

Only 75 more days until those thin runnels of ice will be getting good enough to hop on.  MAN I can't wait!  I can feel the cold leaching into my hands and the slow drip of ice melting and runnning down my sleeve as I sketch out high above my last screw.  SO little time so many climbs.

I cannot even tell you how anxious I am for ice season this year. for some reason I've been thinking about it for the past couple of weeks. I'm even starting to plan my annual trip to the Canadian Rockies. the "Selected Alpine Climbs" and Waterfall Ice" guides have been on my nightstand all week!

Its going to be an EL NINO winter this year! Do you remember the last El NINO winter??? I do. There was no Snow until the last day of January and then no more until late Feb. That means no ice!!!!! So keep dreamin about ice when you should be dreaming about smokin the rock.

Also, with the climate change there has not been much ice for the last couple years anyway. So the synopsis is, keep dreamin or plan a trip to canada.

Don't know where you've been spending your time...last year sucked, but the year before was one of the best ice years on record!  We don't need sub-zero temps, just more moisture than we had last year...

well more moisture is directly related to snowfall in the winter. we'll need a lot of snow to make the ice form well.

OK, so last year wasnt the best. But I do not think we should be so quick to trade our mountaineering boots for teva's. We will allways have ice some where to climb. Or if the ice is bad maybe you should learn how to dry tool. (laughs) Dont forget we live in New England and the only thing that remains constant with the weather is change. I am looking forward to ice season this year and so is most every one else I know. Have a great day.
