Trying to get the wood cut up for winter still. A neighbor came down with a splitter, and punched through a third of it yesterday. I intended to cut the remaining logs, but my luck continues, and the chainsaw won't start. So I stacked.

official 2011 La Nina predictions here. I guess that we will see. Personally, El Nino and La Nina sounds more to me like El Caca made up by weathermen who won't admit that they are basically guessing on a daily basis.
Widespread Panic has announced a short series of acoustic "Wood" shows to cap their 25th anniversary celebration that has been rolling all year. Folllowing some dates out East, plans are for a three night run at the Fillmore in Denver for us commoners, followed by an exclusive run in Aspen, CO, at the Belly Up Tavern, with tickets for each evening starting at $350.
While an all acoustic set sounds cool, I can't help but think of the winter run they did through Colorado back in '96, when they would play one set acoustic and one plugged in. Some of my favorite tapes are from these dates, and I am sure that tickets were not in the $350 range at that time.

Fresh black bear tracks in the snow this morning on a scouting mission for Elk up in the National Forest service land behind the 'hood. He walked right along the fallen tree.
We had mad snow above 8000' on the 6th/7th of October in the San Juans. Wolf Creek got 3 feet, and turned on the lifts. WE headed over the hills for a look at Red Mountain pass, and a soak in the hot springs in Ouray. This is near the top of the pass at Ironton.
