The National Toboggan Championships
will be held this coming weekend in Camden, Maine. As a past resident of the area I can say that this event, and toboggan runs in general, are a blast. Read About
or Listen to
(about 40 minutes into the Real Audio File), descriptions of the event.
Any toboggan runs or similarly impressive downhill snow events in your neck of the woods?

I've never been accused in the past of only posting serious news item type links - so just to prove that i'm no stick-in-the-mud here is a fun link. It apparently requires no shockwave plugins..... ladies and gentlemen--and especially you cosmopolite European members--I give you, after a wee scroll down and download....

!! please enjoy this during work hours.

With winter and the holiday season fast approaching, let's get the annual snowcraft
link out of the way. Shockwave plug-in required.

U.S. mean temperature (January-September) warmest on record.
That's in 105 years. Something to be alarmed about? Maybe, maybe not, but call me concerned, folks. Given the fact that we don't seem to have winter around here anymore, I guess our grandkids will be asking us, "Hey, tell us about the time it was cold!".
Pardon me for posting links in rapid succession; the NCDC website is obscenely slow, if you can get to it at all.
