Tucker,
First, if the key just popped off - line it up where it should be and press fairly hard - it should pop back on (if we're talking about a desktop keyboard, not a laptop).

It looked like the forecast said mid 20s last night and the same tonight. Do you know if T-Line got a chance to turn any of the guns on? Hopefully, your answer won't require an "o"

oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo...there we go...thanks...I'm not sure...wasn't over there today and I can't see right now due to the dark and all...but if I had to bet I would guess yes...

I don't know what the humidity is number wise but it's real clear out and feels fairly dry... and when I licked my thumb and threw the grass in the air the wind was pretty calm(I learned that from watching golf on tv)...cold, dry, no wind...smells like good snowmakng conditions to me...

Otto, if you can catch a ride with JohnL it just might be. Had my first powder day of the season there on jan 2, yup half an inch of powder, drifts up to at least 2-3 inches.

dirt chicken n. skier who runs into muddy patches,stopping them immediately, and, in severe cases, ejecting them from their skis into the mud. Skier usually rolls around in mud trying to gather equipment. Found in mid-atlantic resorts during warm spells.

Somehow I knew that was going to come up...I think you know very well what a box chicken, but for those who don't:

box chicken n. Snowboarder who, while approaching a box to attempt a boardslide, chickens out and does a 50/50. Flapping of arms like chicken wings towards the judges while in competition is a common sign of box chickenitis. Rail chickens are also popular and occur while appraoching a rail instead of a box...I'm pretty sure there are also some rare jump chickens out there as well.

....Yes, I believe that air-chickens lack the ability to fly...but they do a mean side step...

So would Crush's recipe for the wolverine work ok, or maybe we could dust the chicken in dirt and then rub on a nice jerk seasoning??

Earl sez.... eat more dirt chicken, mmmmmmmmmmm good .

LOL! I was wondering who would be the first person to use "Earl" and "Dirt Chicken" in the same sentence.

I saw my first dirt chicken today. I was on the lift at T-Line and there it was, flapping around in a puddle off to the side of White Lightning. It was an interesting sight to be sure. It looked like it had gone into that puddle on purpose at a high rate of speed, but then didn't seem too happy about it

It was very hard to find the dirt chickens this morning. It was very foggy on top of the mountain:

T-Line is doing a great job, but I fear it may be a losing battle. Big sink holes are starting to open up under parts of Sally - there's just too much water running under the slopes - and the mud puddles are coming back to WL. Hopefully we can make it until Tuesday. I'm going to stay up here and prove to myself that it really can get cold up here

In this case a picture (like the web cams at 7 Springs) really is worth a thousand words. I have been wondering where all the posters have been the last couple of days...skiing, I guess. Glad to get a report! I hope to get to TLine later this week if the weather gets cold, they make lots of snow, and, most importantly, open a few more trails before the weekend. By the way, everybody notice that the Canaan Lodge is having a discount promotion for January?!!

Wow, you mean I've been seeing all those "dirt chickens" and didn't know what I was missing???? I hear they are quite good when marinaided in a lemon sauce then seared on the grill . The one I saw on Saturday on the drop was quite a plump little hen unlike the scrawney rooster walking down WL, skiis and poles in hand....

"Earl", The West Virginia Snow God!

I can see him now, holding his ice scepter in one hand and the big brown jug in the other, casting the disbelievers into the mud puddles to flounder around like chickens.

This will be very popular once Tuscan Ridge gets built out; I'd imagine one of the new feativals in Tucker County will be the Tuscany Dirt Chicken Cook-off:

Wash chicken, taking great care to remove rocks, twigs and leaves, and mud, skis and boots. Brine in salted water 4-24 hours. In a large bowl, combine chicken with 4 oz EVOO, four or five bulbs of minced fresh gahlic (for you not-guidos a bulb is the whole gahlic, not just a clove), rosemary, salt & pepper and allow to marinate 2 hours. Roast chicken @ 375F for 2 hours, allow to rest a minimum of 20 minutes before serving.

For a fried or crispy version remove rocks, twigs, leaves, skis and boots as you would for tuscan dirty chicken. Then proceed by using a garden hose to remove mud...but leave all carharts, nascar/camouflage jackets, jeans, and or rastafarian/porcupine hats on chicken....and deep fry...best when servd with a cold/delicious...before you fry you should take off the group ticket pass...you can use the wicket as a wish bone...be sure to wish for snow...

I'll tell you were I haven't been....on the slopes. That's gonna change tomorrow.

And what's with the 50% guido thing? 75% right here...and I bet my great grand parents were pretty dissappointed when my grandmother got mixed up with that cajun boy.
