After three years of not being able to ride my snowmobile due to invisible illness, it's great to get back out there this season. Today I followed a narrow ski trail down by the bank of the lazy Bellamy just below the reservoir dam. A small snow drift obscured the side hill and the machine rolled into a tree while I rolled down the bank into the river.

Events like this really help put me in the moment. It took me about 1.5 hours to trudge and crab walk most of the way back through the deep snow and minimal trail. Finally decided to call in the cavalry due to calves cramping up. This has proved a very busy day with lots of exercise and outdoor time.

Please enjoy these photos from my snowmofailing jaunt.

+Travis Hayes Dawwwww! That's awesome. Yah fish and game take finding things like your sled very seriously. Loads of people get hurt and many die from being stranded in these temperatures. Now you know for next time.

I like my lighting the way I like my music: electro-industrial.

After a frustrating trip through various LED bulbs, I was directed toward these leftover stock units from SWITCH. $12/ea from my local +Batteries Plus Bulbs for the heaviest, most overdesigned, overbuilt tanks of the industrial lighting world. Incandescent light quality, instant on, dimmable, liquid cooled, can be used enclosed and in any position.

Anybody else have favorite products or tricks to share related to lighting or home automation?

+Robert Anderson front bucket and rear blower is a great setup for days like today where there's no place left to plow the snow. BTW, I've showed you mine, now I'm really itching to see the Anderson Compound.

As disrupting as extreme weather events can be, we should appreciate the way they synchronize communal priorities and schedules, enhancing our togetherness.

This morning I cooked bacon, eggs, and home fries, inviting my upstairs tenant down to share breakfast. When the snow winds down, we'll join our able bodied neighbors in helping clear out and spend time with the two elderly widows in the neighborhood. This might be a taste of the sense of community from when this was family farm country.

I added a lighter to my #edc  a few months ago. Aside from the very occasional cigar, I don't smoke, but it's nice to be able to make a flame when necessary. This IMCO 6700 lighter (now made by Esbit) arrived today. There are now a lot of Chinese knockoffs of this lighter out there, but this has the correct "IMCO PAT" mark under the striker-side cover.

After adding Zippo fuel, the lighter sparked and lit on the first try. The Zippo design never really appealed to me. There's no cleverness there. The IMCO is tiny and fairly light. Opening the wick and sparking the fuel occur during a single flicking action. The flame is adjustable and the entire fuel/wick canister may be removed and used as a candle. No safety features ever get in the way of flexible operation.

I think this will become my standard carry lighter, relegating my butane disposables and cigar lighter to less frequent use. +rikhard fsoss +Nate Berry

Anecdotally, my Anthem Gold plan's monthly premiums are up 4% for 2015. New Hampshire finally has some other providers in the Marketplace, yet they seem to be staking out the state by region to avoid direct competition. #obamacare   #obamacare2015

With Google's new Android calendar app, I can finally appreciate Verizon's choice to provide the AOSP calendar as a non-removable app. I love it when conflicting dark forces make life easier!

At least old me gets to bask in the beard respect I receive from hipsters.

Hah!   Whereas I am hoping to get out and ski today when the snow gets a bit deeper.   We're flying to Austin tomorrow, so I won't be able to enjoy it then.   :/
