Thanks for the report. Looks like I'll probably be waiting a week or two to ski there.

A balmy 9 degrees out this morning

I've been working on getting back into reef aquariums. I'm pretty proud of what I've been able to do to this point. Custom stand and custom plumbing:



Don't really like the color the stain ended up though. Don't know if I really feel like changing it though.

Are you making a custom coffee machine for Zubrus?

It was still fun, but if you only go skiing one or two weekends a year, you could wait for better conditions.

Sadly, it looks that way. All the models have dragged this thing way far south in the last 24 hours, to the point where the track now looks like North Carolina and Virginia will be the ones getting snow. NOAA is flying a plane into the energy today to get more accurate data, but if it doesnt shift back to the north by tonight's run, it's not happening.

EDIT: So the 12:00 (USA) run just came out and did shift the storm back north, which would give most of Jersey about 1/2 inch to 3 inches if that happened, but nothing major. Will have to see what the other government's models have to say.

First day of classes. Got invited to a Barclays Center tour and possible meet and greet with some from the marketing department. Too good to pass up and fortunately the class I'll only miss out of three today is english.

I think it's safe to say it's a front-wheel drive vehicle.

Definitely, I mean, they do handle better in the snow typically.

Yeah I'll likely only get out two or three days this winter, maybe a little bit more over spring break. I'm considering xc skiing the Whiteface toll road this weekend to save money on lift tickets.

I'll probably wait until the trees are skiable to head to Gore (crossing my fingers that it happens soon.)

Oh we're covered on that one. We have a keurig and plenty of coffee. My two problems (and this is where I'm going to look crazy): the coffee tastes pretty watered down on anything other than one of the smaller brew sizes (which is like 6 or 8 ounces at best), and I'm really not a fan of hot coffee (iced coffee all the way). Those things are terrible for iced coffee, since it only gets more watered down throwing the hot coffee over ice.... That and I'm way too wired on large iced coffees. I can't get enough to get my fix on one k-cup. Its a vicious cycle.

Scott, get a french press and set it up brewing the night before and put it in the fridge. It will cold brew all night, and then be ready for your iced coffee masterpiece in the morning

French presses are heaven. Don't know what I'd do without mine.

I've done that before (generally speaking) with the k-cups. Brew it the night before, or even an hour early and throw it in the fridge/freezer/whatever to get it cold. Its an improvement, but then goes back to my issue of being so hooked on large iced coffees (usually around 32 ounces, even if a good chunk is ice), that its not enough coffee to get my head right. I know the simple solution is "brew twice as much then" but I'm nowhere near operating "logically" when caffeine is involved. The french press thing... that's another story. What about it would make it so much better for my situation though?

I don't know much about fuel flow rates and combustion but he was driving at least 2:30 and that seems a little long for just residual fuel in the line. I would expect a car to run maybe 10-15 seconds on gas in the line given it takes about that long for the fuel pump to pull gas to the engine once you've run a tank empty and attempt to refill and start.

I guess a flexible hose is more likely to stay intact than more brittle components. It was probably the only thing holding the back connected.

Toyota tolerances are said to be some in the industry. I know it was a point of pride in the engineering group where one of my buddies is a quality control manager for their tier 1 suppliers.

I'll defer to our in-house auto experts CB and OFS.

That's all I need to say about this.
