Yep, we went there yesterday morning, then hit the Opry Mills food court for a light lunch. We were there 2 years ago, and I thought the ice sculptures were a bit better then......however, that may just be a figment of my imagination!

All of the ice sculptures were very cool!!! But, I think the ones that always look the greatest are the ones in the Nativity!!! Absolutely MAGNIFICENT!!!

(also saw Christmas shows by Tim Watson on the "Gen. Jackson" showboat, Pam Tillis' dinner show, the Rockettes, and we went to the Grand Ole Opry 9pm-midnight show downtown @ the Ryman auditorium......a VERY nice weekend!!!!)

I do a lot of outdoor stuff and I'm a weather snob.

NE and Midwest to cold. SE to humid. SW to hot. CA just right.

Golden, BC paragliding capitol of Canada

no, I'm not a paraglider (but I'm thinking about it). I checked the stats--my motorcycling habit is likely more dangerous.

but, I'm stuck in Kotzebue, Alaska for 89 more days w*rking.

Re: Where You Live

Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Think Denver for topography and climate (except knock about 10F off on temps on average). Population of city proper currently 1 million. Going nuts with growth in both economy and population.

Can get brutally cold to -35 or so in winter interspersed with 'chinook' winds which can then raise temps to 50 within a day. Average winter temps though maybe 20F. Many people become snowbirds for winter....Arizona mostly. Summers are typically sunny and dry with temps 65-85 and the Rockies are less than an hour away for lots of outdoor fun.

I lived for 15 years in the Santa Clara/Silicon Valley area. It was indeed quite perfect, "just right" as MB says. Boy do I miss it right now.

These days I'm back home in the Pacific Northwest. For those who know the area, I'm about two hours away from Mt. St. Helens and climbed it last summer, and about 45 minutes to the wonderous hiking trails of the Columbia Gorge. The northwest is absolutely glorious in summer. During winter, I just try to remember how wonderful the summers are and tell myself that it'll be back soon enough again . . .

Canadian prairies. Lovely (short) summers, and the other 8 months of the year.
