    Wow, you get downright pithy when you're snowbound. Guess you can take the old fart outta California but you can't take the California outta the old fart.
    Thank you.

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    This "storm" is keeping me from going to Canada to ski in real snow.

    Well, stepped out for a smoke and a shovel. A bit over an inch thus far. Still very fine flakes. Heavier stuff still to get here.
    Thank you.

    Should only get a couple of inches in Northern NJ, but I just finished my darkroom, so you can bet it's a printing weekend! Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

    Geez- woke up to a whole inch and a half this morning -- and it isn't snowing any more. I suppuse we got what was predicted. I was realy hoping for a couple of feet of the white shtuff. Guess I'll pack up the family to where theres lots more of it, and take the skis, and the mutts, and a big picnic, get some skinny-skiing in. Crap, there isn't even enough to get decent sledding any where close by. Chris, can we come visit, and play in the snow down there?(just kidding) I love to X-C, its one of the few things that is low impact on my ailing body, and its fun.

    Don't want to beat a dead horse, but from the Yourdictionary.com
    Decade
    a period of ten years; esp., in the Gregorian calendar
    1. officially, a ten-year period beginning with the year 1, as 1921-1930, 1931-1940, etc.
    2. in common usage, a ten-year period beginning with a year 0, as 1920-1929, 1930-1939, etc.
    As with most aspects of the English language (e.g., spelling, pronunciation), common usage will prevail over "official" prescriptions.

    looks like a darkroom day.....yesterday's 3" of snow received about 1" of rain and has all but disappeared in Richmond. Still some snow from last weekend's storm, but nothing to get very excited about.

    Oh come on, let's beat that dead horse. It's so much fun, and the snow story seems to be over anyway:

    Wikepedia is a bit confusing in defining the term 'decade', but is pretty elaborate when it comes to the term 'century':

    According to the Gregorian calendar, the 1st century C.E. started on January 1, 1 and ended on December 31, 100. The 2nd century started at year 101, the third at 201, etc. The n-th century started/will start on the year 100×n - 99. A century will only include one year, the centennial year, that starts with the century's number (e.g. 1900 is the final year in the 19th century).

    It is a commonly held misconception that the 20th century ended on December 31, 1999. The 20th century actually ended on December 31, 2000, its centennial year. In the United States, this fact has been disputed with major media calling December 31, 1999 the end of the 20th century. The century referred to as the 1900s would, however, end on December 31, 1999.

    So, if one is wrong, he just needs to find enough others to be wrong too, and everything is fine. We will never let facts stay in the way of opinions, will we now?

    Too bad my grammar teachers didn't buy that one.
