Hi Folks,

Well it's been a very busy week and honestly I haven't had got heck of a lot to say. On top of that I haven't been out this week 'cause I had something removed from my left forearm on Monday and was told not to climb, bike or ski until after the stitches come out next Wednesday. [ARRRGGGHHH] I'm the kind of person who needs regular exercise and so you can only imagine how frustrated I am right now! The only thing that's been keeping me sane is that I've been able to play the bass, but that's hardly aerobic - in spite of how energetic I am when I play! There have to be at least a few of you who can relate…

Anywho, there were lots of folks out climbing today. Here are a few pics of them:

The one on Repentance is pretty neat since I didn't notice the climber 'till I was home going through the shots. I wonder how often that happens to photographers?

You all know about the big dump of snow last week, well we had a few inches of unexpected powder on Tuesday night and now it looks as if another big storm is on the way. Although from the Mt Washington weather report you wouldn't know it, all the other services are predicting quite a dump Saturday night through Sunday morning.

Here's the AccuWeather report:

Here's what the National Weather Service has to say:

Stay tuned...

Skiers and shopkeepers should be happy, not quite so sure about us homeowners who have to cleanup afterwards.
