    Got hit with a suprise little storm this morning. There was a 20% chance of a trace to an inch. At 4:30 this morning it was not doing a thing. At 7:00 this morning you could not see the houses that are 150 - 200 yards away. Wind was howling at 47 mph. Complete white out here this morning. By 10:00 the sun was out and every drive was drifted in. It made for a not so fun day pushing big drives with anywhere from 6 " of snow to 3 feet in some places and most sitting at 12" to 24". Guess I will finish my unoccupieds tomorrow and propbably do most of the ones I did today again as it is suppose to be windy all night with 15 - 20 mph winds.

    That's a good deal for you...making money and it's not even snowing...just blowing!! payup

    BTW...I was in Jackson Hole back in 1973 while on a cross country motorcycle trip...nice place, but the things that stand out in my mind...#1 a campground where 2 hippie girls invited me and my buddy over to their site to smoke weed and "ahem" other things...(ah sweet youth!)
    #2 The Cowboy Bar where I swear, I saw a young harmonica player who turned out years later to be that big fat dude who plays tremendously...can't recall his name but he did that song "Runaround" (john popper, maybe?)
    #3 The View of the Grand Tetons...and the Muley and Elk antlers in a park there...

    Everybody knows that Wyoming only gets 4" of snow in October and then it spends the rest of the winter blowing that same 4" around. :blush2:

    Not so sure about that. ;) I was in Jackson in Feb of '97, record year. Something like 400" that year. That was beautiful and awesome.

    No you have it all wrong. We do have four seasons.
    Last winter
    This winter
    Next winter
    And all the winters yet to come

    Never been to any place that I thought was more beautiful no matter the season. I hope to get back out there again sometime in the future. I think it's been about 10 years. When I lived in CO I got to Jackson about 3-4 times a year travelling for Sno-Way. I always thought it would be a great area to retire some day. Please post a few pics for us. I need my Jackson Hole fix. LOL :D

    Well I can gaurentee you that it has changed. It was expensive then, but now it is way out of hand. Average home here is now over $1.2 million.

    It is more like poverty with a view.

    Will see what I can do about getting some pictures up for you though. ;)

    Thanks ECS. I will be neat to see how things have changed. I will have to dig out some old pics that I have. I went out on the National Elk Refuge one year on a sled ride while there. One of the coolest experiences that I have ever had. After that it was always the first stop that I would make when I got into town. I would drive out , find a place to pull off, open up the windows on the truck and sit there and soak it all in. You never new what you would see while out there whether elk, foxes, big horn sheep.

    I think I might start looking at some flights today. :D

    Now you would have the chance to see wolves, mountain lions and about 700 bison on the refuge as well.
