... Very slick roads for the Wednesday morning commute...
Conditions Wednesday morning for the morning commute are expected to be very slippery on area roads. Snow showers from Tuesday evening have dropped between one half and one inch of snow in the Treasure and Magic Valley.
Minimum temperatures Wednesday morning are forecast to drop to the upper teens to lower 20s across the region. Any left over moisture will freeze up quickly overnight and produce a very slick condition on roads... sidewalks and other exposed surfaces.
Driving Wednesday morning may be quite hazardous. Caution is advised. It is early in the season and people need to refresh themselves in winter driving conditions. Allow extra time to reach destinations... slow down and keep plenty of distance between vehicles.

The blue arrow represents what can happen to a fast moving photographer trying to get into the timed shot, but discovering a badger hole along the way!
This was one of those uncontrolled falls that you used to do when you were 8 years old many times a day with no ill effects, but now that you are over 40, might just result in you being crippled come Monday morning.
The adrenaline is just starting to wear off and the pain set in. This was what I thought the shot would look like originally.
Almost home and on the right side of the railroad tracks!

One of the reasons the game became so popular was for its low system requirements, which would allow the game to be run even on aging hardware. The current version is entirely Web-based, and runs on any browser with the Flash player plug-in installed.

What is GrandCentral?
Get all the same calls, but in a whole new way.
GrandCentral doesn't replace your phones; we just link them together and help them do more. How do we do that? We give people One Number...for LifeTM - a number that's not tied to a phone or a location - but tied to you.
With GrandCentral, you can be reached with a single number, answer a call at any phone you want, seamlessly switch phones in the middle of a call, and even know whether a call is important before you take it.
What else can I do with GrandCentral?
We're not your typical phone company. And these aren't your typical features.
- Check your messages by phone, email, or online
- Keep all your messages online for eternity
- Record and store your phone calls (just like voicemail)
- Quickly (and secretly) block an annoying caller
- Click-to-dial from your address book
- Surprise your callers with a custom voicemail greeting
- Forward, download, and add notes to your messages
This service is currently in BETA. Reserve your number now... They signed me up the next day.
When was the last time you fell in love with a new artist or song?
At Pandora, we have a single mission: To play music you'll love - and nothing else.
To understand just how we do this, and why we think we do it really, really well, you need to know about the Music Genome Project©.
Since we started back in 2000, we have been hard at work on the Music Genome Project. It's the most comprehensive analysis of music ever undertaken. Together our team of fifty musician-analysts has been listening to music, one song at a time, studying and collecting literally hundreds of musical details on every song. It takes 20-30 minutes per song to capture all of the little details that give each recording its magical sound - melody, harmony, instrumentation, rhythm, vocals, lyrics ... and more - close to 400 attributes! We continue this work every day to keep up with the incredible flow of great new music coming from studios, stadiums and garages around the country.
With Pandora you can explore this vast trove of music to your heart's content. Just drop the name of one of your favorite songs or artists into Pandora and let the Genome Project go. It will quickly scan its entire world of analyzed music, almost a century of popular recordings - new and old, well known and completely obscure - to find songs with interesting musical similarities to your choice. Then sit back and enjoy as it creates a listening experience full of current and soon-to-be favorite songs for you.
You can create as many "stations" as you want. And you can even refine them. If it's not quite right you can tell it so and it will get better for you.
The Music Genome Project was founded by musicians and music-lovers. We believe in the value of music and have a profound respect for those who create it. We like all kinds of music, from the most obtuse bebop, to the most tripped-out drum n bass, to the simplest catchy pop tune. Our mission is to help you connect with the music YOU like.
We hope you enjoy the experience!

That is downtown Boise.
A closer shot.
Underneath the "Table" are some small caves.
Deb and I take shelter from the wind in one of the caves.
Landscape photos do not show you if the wind is blowing. I needed Deb in the shot for that!

The SriLankan Airlines customers had been on the Airbus A340 a day earlier when it sliced through a wing of a stationary British Airways 747 at Heathrow, delaying departure by 24 hours.
So they were amazed to be boarding the same plane next day for the ten-hour flight to Colombo.
There are really only 2 things making this event blog worthy: The first is how few people actually evacuated the building. I counted no more that 10 people outside when I know for a fact that the entire hotel is booked. And, of those 10 people more than half of them were co-workers. You could see people looking out of their windows, but they weren't coming out!
The second, is the history of this fine hotel. I have had adventure here before! See Blogging In The Blackout for details.
