Dan and Phil get close

Dan is willing to forgive him, originally uploaded by katemohatt.

I found this little gem on Dan's camera. Remember Halloween?

-45F in Fairbanks

I drove to Fairbanks a few weeks ago and realized that I had forgotten exactly how insane -45F really is. I went from 20F in Anchorage to about -20F in Cantwell and then the really cold stuff hit around Denali. My car frosted up which gave Alice something to do, but the stiff shocks made for a rough ride. Road trip anyone?

Max's Christmas and New Year's Eve

Max had fun this year playing with sparklers and digging in to the stocking that Santa hung from the mantle. I balanced out a new Power Ranger toy with a naustalgic game of Twister and now realize that children cheat when playing games at a very young age...

Tahoe Storm Warning

We have been advised by the National Weather Service that a series of three severe winter storms are predicted to impact Northern California beginning today and continuing through early next week.

The strongest of the three storms is expected to hit the area on Friday with heavy rain and wind gusts as high as 60 mph, at Lake level with 100-plus mph winds on the ridge tops. El Dorado County residents should be prepared for short, and possible long term, power outages and extremely hazardous travel conditions.

Please be very safety conscious, keeping away from any downed electrical lines and anticipating road hazards, such as blowing debris and possible localized flooding.

We recommend you have 1.5 gallons of water, per person, per day, for at least three days. Secure pets and livestock. Maintain full tanks of fuel in your vehicle. Do not use outdoor heating sources, such as barbeques for indoor use. Other suggested supplies include:

— Non perishable canned goods and a manual can opener
— Battery powered radio and extra batteries
— Cell phone
— First Aid Kit
— Winter weather clothing
— Cash as ATM’s will not work if power is out.

This has been a public service announcement from the El Dorado County and City of South Lake Tahoe Office of Emergency Services.

***I'm very impressed that cash is listed in the top ten things to have in an emergency. Where is the liquor, guns and stockpiled Netflix DVD's? For crying out loud there isn't even a diagram of how to properly butcher your neighbor's frozen corpse.

The Cocoon

Do not fear. Fear is the mind killer. P. Dude is down but not out. Like a crop eating moth transforming in a Cocoon, I will reemerged and party in an even grander fashion.
