Way to ruin it for everyone else, jerk. You're now the kid at the science fair with the real working volcano and we all just have stupid potato radios.:mad:Quote:

The view out my car window was spectacular today, whether looking at the snow-capped mountains to the east or the city to the south (I did a lot of driving, so a lot of the view was at 65-80mph), and I opened the sunroof so it was a lot of blue sky. Crap, I have a mild sunburn on my forearms.
The view out my window: I am just a couple of miles from the Sandia Mountains to the east of me (location-location) When the sun sets they turn red just before it goes down. Hence "Sandia" which means watermelon in well, I don't know what language, probably spanish.
What's cool is when they are coated in snow it's a surreal pink color.
Right now most of the snow is melted and the pollen from Juniper and Pine is so thick you can see a haze of it when the sun peeps over them. That's the first thing to bloom around here and a major source of sneezing, watery-itchy eyes for me. :cry:
You do know that we have plentiful water which we pipe in from the Sierra Nevadas and other surrounding areas, right? And since SoCal is population-dense AND large, we have the buying power to buy up all your water and ship it out here too. ;) Meanwhile, I haven't heard anything great about Pittsburgh's water.Quote:
Well at least when the water wars begin, we up here won't be thirsty.
Salt water ain't all that cheap to desalinate, JT.
Such a poetic post cut down by that last sentence. :D
Time for an update now that the azaleas are blooming:
Depending on how far I lean back in my chair [OOOOFPH!!]... sorry. I can see one of three windahs, plus a frosted skylight that shows you nothing (unless a crow walks on it). So I zoomed in and took these wonderful, details pics o' my views:
To the SW, a wall.
To the NW, my backyard.
To the NE, my frontyard.
Amazing, like a candy-coated chocolate, or a Met.
