    Sorry Texas

    No, not sorry that we are in the same regional forum - since I am from Calgary, we have a few things in common: Oil, Cowboys and wide open spaces.

    What I am really sorry for is I am the one to blame fer pullin the plug out of the deep freeze at the 49th parallel and lettin all that cold air down south!

    Now take it easy on me... I didn't mean to do it.

    We are getting prepared. Is red the warmest color?

    Sorry Texas

    It's warmed up here, so you should be in for some relief. Had a perfect mid-week sneak day at Lake Louise yesterday; severe clear and about 28 above.



    Even parts of Saskatchewan are warming up.

    apology accepted. we like a little chilly weather now and again, we get to make hot chocolate and soup. besides, when you get some hot weather this summer, we will need to apologize back again.

    i rode into work today and enjoyed doing an experiment to see if it was so cold that i wanted my gerbings, or if i could get by with just my heavy fleece under my jacket.

    it was 58F.

    the fleece worked.

    Please promise to send some of that heat next summer! I was in Austin once a couple of years ago. Remember eating at a great place west of town I think. And it was so hot I almost wilted. The locals took pity on me and made sure I was never without cold beer. I've had fond thoughts of your Weird town ever since.
