This is some heartfelt sympathy to our brothers and sisters, fellow snowriders all, living in the North-east. Hope you and your families are well and safe after the horrible b-tch Irene has passed through your communities. Take care, and safe riding.

Thanks. I was paddleboarding down my street on Sunday. Too much wind and too gusty to go kiteboarding, for me anyway.

No prob. Hope home is ok. I grew up on the East Coast and know how much it sucks(sometimes fun) to get flooded.

Great sentiment. Luckily I just had to deal with some downed trees. I have some friends that will be without power until next week most likely.

Thanks Ned for the kind thoughts. We weren't hit too hard in Metro Boston, some tree damage and a few of us without power. Some areas in VT are still having it pretty tough as they got the brunt of the rain (11 inches in some areas) from Irene.

On a lighter note: Thanks to the cold temperatures following Irene, my favorite resort was able to start snowmaking - In AUGUST. Not sure how that is possible but I'm not asking questions.

It is not unheard of. High elevations get chilly in the morning. It has been in the 40's in PA a few times this month, so why it wouldn't be colder further north and way higher is not out of the question.

Wasn't saying it's not possible, as I didn't make that chart myself, I just don't believe it without pictures. (Assuming he's referring to crystal) the top of the mountain is 1,132 feet above sea level. Around us anyway they rarely ever fire up the snow guns (in like november) without religiously checking their weather reports making sure they will sustain several days of ideal conditions.
Unless the aforementioned mountain had a little window where they decided to throw down some snow and have a rail jam or something, in which case pictures would also be nice because that's pretty awesome for this time of year.

That's what I was thinking...just because it's possible doesn't make it sustainable.
