And it looks like he just bought some 30 year old second hand chains on Craigslist and they came in a 60 year old box. Well, a penny saved is a penny earned!
By the time you read this, Mike and I have already been skiing a week, hopefully with lots of snow! Right now, as I’m typing this in advance, the weather forecast doesn’t look too bad, not a lot of sun, but at least enough snow. But we ski in almost any type of weather anyway. It’s an outdoor sport, after all! Except when it’s raining, that’s the only type of weather that makes us pack our stuff and leave the mountain.
Half of Austria is buried in buried in snow right now. And Mike and I are a bit bummed that we didn’t book our regular annual skiing trip in January as we usually do. Well, I’m sure there’ll be some snow left by the time we hit the slopes. Perfect timing is hard to achieve anyway, because if we would have gone last week, we might have been snowed in like many others. I think there are still some towns that are cut off from the outside.
We begin this year with another repost from the olden days of our former website. It’s actually one of our own favorites, and it totally fits to the current weather in many parts of Europe and the States!
I hope you all had a good transition into the new year and wish you all nothing but the best in 2011!
And by the way, another quick reminder: In a couple of hours, Mike will be live on radio on on Flight Time Radio! (10:05 Eastern) Check it out!
Well, I hope none of you are personally inconvenienced by the weather, like Chuck. Here in Europe there’s chaos on pretty much all the major airports. My heart goes out to all those poor souls who are stranded in London, Paris, Frankfurt or anywhere else! I was stranded for a week too this year, but that was in Bangkok, with cheap hotels and food and 35 centigrade. Which is like vacation, compared to being stuck on a cold airport where you just wanted to transfer (I read somewhere that in London they turned off the lights and heating overnight on some waiting passangers, is that true?)
And today I read that they’ve also got a huge backlog of hundreds of tons of mail in Frankfurt, so that they now issued an emargo and won’t accept any new mail deliveries. I hope that none of our online shop orders are affected by this! But I don’t think shipments within Europe go via airmail anyway.
Well, at least we’re looking forward to white Christmas!
