Just HDR applied then adjusted to taste and famed.
Too much scenery ~ too little time.
I call this one, "Road To The Bob"

Snow down to about 2700 feet here this morning... I guess the view out my front door was trying to look like Montana for real for me!

down to 2700'.....hm. I live at an elevation of 9.5'.......just low enough to have to carry flood insurance. As a kid, I loved snow and enjoyed shoveling the sidewalk and driveway....but then, I was in Indiana....

Hah... FEMA is nuts. I'm at the top of the ridge in the middle of the desert, 10 miles from the nearest spot that ever gets wet, and they claim I'm in a flood zone and I'm supposed to cough up almost 3 grand a year for flood insurance (which BTW will NOT pay off unless your area is declared a federal disaster area). So far I've refused to pay, and the bank hasn't said another word about it.

3 grand????? Wow! Thats what I pay for homeowner's insurance. I pay about $300 for the federal Flood insurance.

The FEMA premium is almost 3 times my homeowner's insurance, for BOTH houses combined. FEMA (or to be accurate, the bank) would want double that if they hadn't neglected to notice the rental house entirely. You probably have a "Certificate of Elevation" which can drastically reduce the FEMA premium... and is completely meaningless. My State Farm dude tells me they have one customer who lives at the very peak of a mountain and can't get one, and FEMA says he's in a flood zone! Yet they delisted the local dry lakebeds and dry riverbed, which I've seen with 10 and 35 feet of water in 'em, respectively, in very wet years. (Wet:15 INCHES of rain in a single night!)

I think the whole thing has evolved into a scam to recover the costs from Katrina, by charging premiums for areas they know will never have a claim, while delisting those that are likely to. (Like the several thousand houses they built down IN the riverbed, about 50 miles down the hill. The riverbed I've seen full to where water was running over the highway bridge deck.)

We live at about 3,400 ft and there is some snowing, some blowing, some drifting ~ and ~

at 6F with 25 mph winds, the wind chill could almost remind me of Wisconsin at this time of year.

Anyways - it all helps get us into the Northern Hemisphere feel that Christmas is a'comin'!

Sounds similar to our new place outside of Helena.. It's a cool 0 degrees here, but it's plenty warm inside, and I've got a woodstove in my shop so it's all good! Turkey day is going to be good, but we are looking forward to Christmas too!

(Not to mention the snowmobiling!)

Default Hunting in the upper Midwest, circa 1900 to 1940

PowerLineBlog has an essay about what hunting was like in the upper Midwest, circa 1900 to 1940, including links to additional pictures.

Jackets, ties and hats, anyone?
