Larry, I know that your snow is pure but I know that it's not in KZ........we had a boy at school who insisted on eating it despite our efforts to discourage him.....one day the water went off and we had science experiments to conduct......so I had Danyar collect some "clean" snow and we melted it in a pot over the stove..........even he gasped at the "crud" floating around in it.......yep, Danyar, that's what you're eating....the Soviets have done so much nuclear testing over KZ in years gone by who knows what's in the precipitation........

The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

Weather was nice and warm yesterday (about 75) so I went out cycling in the nearby hills. I took a shot of the canyons with miles of hiking trails down below. I used my camera phone so the quality is not good. I encountered many cyclists while on the canyon roads. I even ran into a friend whom I have not seen in a year. She was also cycling solo heading the opposite direction. We stopped and chatted for a little while. That's where I snapped this picture from, by the way...

There were lots of hikers out there too, like a typical summer afternoon. I also rode up to the Griffith Observatory where it was crowded with lots of out-of-towners and foreign tourists.

The weather is even nicer today. I'm at work right now and it feels like 85 out there.

At the moment the weather is appropriate to the season, about 39F with slight breeze. Supposed to remain this way for about one or two more days and then on Wednesday the bottom's supposed to fall out. Single digit temps. That's very unusual for this area.

More of the same--snow and very cold. Icy road conditions off and on depending upon the weather. I cancelled an appointment that I had for tomorrow and if I stay off this puter, I might actually get more baking done!
