For PriFi, BT, and all you snowball throwers:

Ok, this thread is our playground, where we can construct any virtual snow throwing machine we can think up. Make sure you have a way to aim your snow hurler, and you have to account for distance. Of course this is our make-believe place, where we can exercise our inner child and imagination. So, PriFi, beware. I've shut the snowball chucker down in favor of the B-53 stratosnowfortress, which carries one hundred, 500 lb. snow-boulders, all soft and fluffy. And it's flying your way. Ever been carpet bombed with an avalanche of snow? Muhuahahahaha.

Snow? Oh yeah...I have a vague recollection...that white stuff that falls from the sky in the great northern wasteland and piles up on the ground making navigation hazardous.

One the Gulf Cost, the balmy trade winds usually maintain shorts and sandals weather year round.

Please excuse me while I finish this grapefruit that picked off the tree yesterday....

Yeh, well you will never know the thrill of taking your kids, or grandkids in the back yard, and making a snow fort, complete with snow table and chairs, and serving up hot cocoa, and a steaming hot open faced sandwich. The contrast is not lost on the kids, or me. It's magical, as is a walk through the wintery forest. The serenity of the winter forest is unmatched by anything any other season has to offer. You only need to dress for it. And sledding down snow-covered hills, or downhill skiing, or ice fishing from a toasty ice shack, with a good friend of family member, can't be done in the gulf. And let's see you go outside, scoop up some fresh snow, and make a snow snow cone, or use your porch, or car as an outside freezer/refrigerator.

The Great White North is truly spectacular, so much so that I wish you and yours a very white Christmas, and lots of it to shovel from your driveway.

After all, I love to share good things.

Seeeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North

I may be an ogre, but I do embrace technology. Trebuchet with GPS location system at the ready as a loading system for my Firefly Class Transport ship.

I see with have a thing going. I have my auto pilot wet for PriFi, and then comes a mid-air refuel and reload. Alix, I hope your snow fort has a air-attack proof roof.

Oh, and my monster snowballs are made from 100% powder, guaranteed to shatter 10 foot above the ground, to disburse fluffy, and cold, but gentle snow down each and every exposed neck or sleeve opening, and even get into your snow boots. You are in for a snow shower extreme.

I'm am now placing my canvas barrier on stout poles to sheild agains crossbow bolts. My sonic disruptor should be able to shatter an ogre made snowball in mid-air. Its a cold seeking device you know.

<rumble, rumble> You can see Chief searching the sky for the ogre sized snowball he knows is coming. While he's looking up it rolls around the corner, from a vicious right hook by PriFi, and rolls right over him...she bowls a strike!

It's cold, wet. and heavy. You play mean. But that's ok. I'll still be dropping a snowstorm of light, powdery snowballs. Oh, wait! My display is connected to the B53 camera. PriFi, you are in my sights. All I need is to push this button. Hmm, 100 snowboulders, and 500 lbs each, of fluffy, loosely packed, yet coherent, carpet bombing your trebuchet, that would be 50,000 lbs. of snow is dropping on you, right..................now!

Do you think my attack was too much? Wait, the snowballs are bursting as planned. Perfect hit! And the snow disbursed itself everywhere. No damage done, except to bury that trebuchet.

Ok, I'm now homing in on the refuler/reloader plain. Alix, I'm a commiin'.

Oh, that snow bowling ball packed a wallop. I think I'm thinner now, at least from front to back.

Considering I live in the Great Wet North and true to form it is raining buckets, I have a rain catcher hooked to a giant snowcone machine which feeds a computerized series of catapult arms, each one with the ability to face in a different direction and fire up to 50 baseball sized frozen beauties a minute. At the moment I have them aimed at Alix, the Princess, the Chief and several others just waiting to be programmed

Oh and since it is a snow cone machine, I can add flavours as well!
