A Snowbowl Xmas

What an excellent Xmas day we've just had. Drove up to Arizona Snowbowl and spent the day skiing there.

The photo attached to this post is of my wife taken at the top of Sunset Chairlift. I've mentioned her a few times in my blog and I'm sure that some of my readers are curious to know what she looks like. Well now you have a photo of her to satisfy your curiosity. Pretty, isn't she?

It was a bit chilly on the slopes. The car registered a sub-zero reading of 17F but the windchill sitting on those lifts made it feel like -20C. I wonder how may people will be able to get their heads around those two temperatures?

I hope that everyone had an excellent Xmas and I wish you all the very best for 2008. May your wildest dreams come true and may your wife not catch you when they do.

As a 13 year resident of the state of Nebraska, I am very well able to get my head around a temprature of 17F and a wind chill of -20 (C or F). I'm just glad I don't have to shovel snow in it this year!

You're married to Darth Vader????

Rob, I burst out laughing when I read your comment and my wife came over to see what I was laughing about. She then told me that someone on the slopes asked her if she was Darth Vader. Personally I hadn't noticed the resemblance until now - and that deep computerized voice she talks to me in.

Ah, but how about the heavy breathing??? :-)
