It's not nice having to bare one's bum to winter's icy fingers.

It is currently between rain and snow. The snow is on the ground and the rain is in the clouds just waiting for an entrance. This means what we have on the roads is slush. Please rain, come and wash it all away.

We have a breezy 9F, with about 5 new inches of the white stuff here along the river.

13F, not much wind and it's snowing again. It stays calm out, I'm heading for a walk outside.

If found alive, I certainly hope the they are charged for the costs. Have only gotten as far as this post, so don't know if there is more to this story. One of my best friends daughter is an avalanche ski patroler in BC. The stupidity of some people is just beyond comment. Should they be killed, too bad, so sad, but I don't feel sorry for them, only the ones they left behind because of their egotistical thoughtlessness.

Yes, the skiers spent the night in the cold, but they were fine.

I feel the same way, anyone who goes off into uncharted country have assumed ALL responsibility for their safety and should have to pay for the rescue.

Ain't gonna happen but I think it should.
Read the Darwin Awards.

Darwin Awards. Homo sapiens decline; Neo Sapiens rise! February 2013

Or "Just Call Saul"

Segue follows:

Of note: "There were 30,516 attorneys registered with the Japan Bar Association as of March 2011. That would be approximately one lawyer for every 4,119 people. By comparison the American Bar Association claimed over 1.2 million active attorneys in the United States. That would be roughly one lawyer for every 250 people."

Too many lawyers in Japan, says Ministry of Internal Affairs | Majirox News

Wiki states: "Due to cultural traditions, Japanese have rarely used lawsuits as a means to settle disputes"

Princess, Don't know if I posted this somewhere else but during the holidays we had a very very warm spell. The snow was super soft. I went out around 10pm to round up the geese. I even put on my snow shoes. The snow was too soft and I still tripped and fell.

One snow shoe and boot came off. My jacket was very warm but I had on light pants. Pants were soaked, sock was soaked, could not bend properly to get my boot back on. Kept sinking in the snow and could not get up.

Laid there for awhile, laughed, then cried, then got angry and said, "Well, warm enough I'll survive til morning (hope) but ...." Didn't want to spend the night there! Finally started to roll, roll, roll til I reached ground that would allow me to get up.

Dragged my boot with me but the snow shoe stayed til the snow was hard enough for me to walk on again.

Final line is .... if the geese don't go into the shelter on the first attempt of no more than 10 feet out, well .... again may favourite saying... too bad, so sad, the coyotes will just get another one! I love my geese - but love me (at least my kids do) more.
