    Well, the temp here has steadily dropped since I got up this morning. It was =8f at 5:30, its now -14f. It's supposed to climb to mid 20's by this afternoon though. Then we get hit with the next round of ice and snow for the next several days.

    DAMN IT! Why can't the people in the Middle Atlantic states figure out which end of the shovel to use to clear a runway??

    8C here this am under partly cloudy skies; forecast is for light showers, beginning late this pm and lasting through the weekend. Looks like the nod will go to the F5 or F6 (well-sealed against moisture). Not great weather for the E100G (what I wouldn't give for some Provia 400), so HP5+ will get the nod (a 200 EI or 1000 EI rating, depending on the cloud cover).
    An assortment of F-series Nikons with quite a few Nikkors, a pair of M6s with some Leitz glass, a pair of 500c/ms with a wide range of Zeiss optics and, just to help keep Duracell solvent, a D800.

    Favourite films: (1). KE ("Kodachrome Era"): 35mm: PKM25 and PKR64, HP5/Tri-X; 120: PKR64, PanF, FP4. (2). PKE ("Post-Kodachrome Era"): (a) 35mm: E100G, HP5 Plus/Tri-X and Delta 3200; (b) 120: E100G, PanF Plus, FP4 Plus, TMax 100.

    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Very WET! About time!
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    At $16.95 USD/roll (gasp, shortness of breath, clutching of chest, etc.), I'll tripod the E100G/VS or shoot HP5+/Tri-X (actually, I find that my favorite "weather pictures" have been generally shot on black and white). Thanks for the "heads-up," though...

    Question for American Northerners

    I have a question best answerable for those who know best. I want to know if the following complaint is common pertaining to being out in the snow. Here at the NC/SC line there is close to a foot of snow right now, which is atypical. Our snows are usually a lot less.
    Anyway, my feet and legs seem very tired--I am tired. And I want to know if it is common when you're out in the snow, doing things like trudging around, carrying firewood, putting weights in the back of a pickup--those sorts of things. Heck, I bet I didn't spend more than 2 hours total today doing these sorts of things. But with big heavy Timberland boots on and having to lift your feet up high for every step, and then having every step slide back,--it just sees you can wear yourself out quick doing that. Or am I just having a "tired day" unrelated to all that trudging in the deep snow? (I'm way out in the country)
    Normally I can split a load a pickup load of wood and not be this worn out.

    Yep, that's enough to tire me out fairly quickly, even wearing shorts and thongs without snow.
    To be fair, last time I was in real snow I also got tired from walking, but that was in the Austrian Alps over winter, and those ski-boots were heavy (but after 3 months skiing I got fairly fit enough)

    $17 a roll for Provia 400X? That's cheap!
