All the homes in Beaver Creek and Bachelor Gulch, it's a part of the homeowners agreement you have a heated driveway. Quite a few homes in Vail, Snowmass and wealthier parts of Summit County you will find them as well. Essentially it works like those infloor heating systems that circulate hot water below the floor boardsand keep your house warm. One guy I talked to said his running costs were cheaper than a plow service and the driveway stayed ice free.

You will find them to be very common at many million dollar properties in the Rockies as well as major ski resort hotels.

Yeah, all of us are just soooooo lazy.

Like someone else said, you older folks always tell us we're lazy, we don't EVER do things for ourselves, and we're going to destroy the country, etc. etc. But do you realize that every generation does that? Come on now.

THIS + Every generation thinks the next is doomed, horrible, lazy, etc. Somehow, someway, the world has continued to turn through a-many generations, it seems.

and....

A very basic physiological phenomenon is taking place with this baby boomer/hippie generation: PROJECTION. Look it up: Psychological projection - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



And again, thanks. I can't wait to pay your generations huburis-ly accumulated debts.

Jazz, they're having sex, SEX SEX SEX!!!

And yeah, dummy. It'll melt off by noon.

There's plenty of money for all that. It's just locked up with the 1% where you can't get to it.

Heh, I have no sidewalks either, and little snow downtown. Yay! I think there are other things to worry about, though. Maybe shoveling snow is a leading indicator, but I have my doubts.

And hurrah for geothermal heat!

Spoke to my niece this morning who is in Delta HS. Her and some friends spent Saturday morning shoveling snow for some of the older people in her neighborhood. No money was asked for, they did accept some hot chocolate though. I thought it was funny because when they were finished, the snow they didn't shovel had melted off. Granted there are some really goofy kids here, but some really good ones too.

Wait a second...you think you can explain humanity in terms greater than black and white!? Blasphamey. Humanity is plain and simple, everyone knows that...!
