    I'm guessing, Tom, that you'll be turning 58 this year? Ask me how I know.
    I think that feeling is pretty normal.

    That's OK, you did say what wouldn't you give...
    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.

    It is having to constantly glance over one's shoulder to keep an eye out for wolves that tires you out! The cold will tire you out, too -- takes more energy to keep the body temperature up.

    And as one who has not grown up with snow (saw my first snowfall at 14 yrs old), being surrounded by snow, I can not help but think back to school, reading One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich. Working in the snow makes for a pretty long day (but I really haven not done too much of it, wimp that I am).

    But the coldest day of work I remember was here on the spit between Humboldt Bay and the Pacific Ocean. We were transplanting planting native beach grasses on the dunes. Air temp was in the lower 40's, perhaps upper 30's, but with a strong constant wind off the ocean. The wind-chill factor was huge, and the wind cut thru what we wore. We felt no warmth from the sun.

    More rain this evening! Looks like we are in for a nice long spell of wet weather, at least in far northwestern CA.

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

    [sigh] In northern Virginia my neighbors are running around as it was snowing waving their hands in the air screaming "We will all be killed! We will all be killed!" [/sigh]

    We have not had it wetter since 1776, which was not a good year, in other departments either.

    Snowing incessantly, again. Fueled up my snow blower and cleared sidewalks for self and a couple octogenarian neighbors. Hope it clears up for my weekend getaway, heading out with my sweetie tomorrow morning and won't be home till Monday night(maybe).

    Average rainfall for Adelaide in January, February, and March combined is 60mm.
    We just had 75mm in the last 24 hours, maybe as much again in the next 24.
    Took me 1.5 hours to drive 14km to work, normally do it in 20-30 mins.
