Cold weather is great for skiing, bad for my heating bill.

X-C skiing in the Annapolis area was quite nice today too. Ground was frozen before the snow hit, so no water/ice at the bottom of the accumulation (which is rare around here). Six-eight inches of relatively dry snow laid a nice base after packing and wasn't deep enough to really make you claw. Had a blast! Two great days of skiing in a row, albeit different types!

Glad to hear you made it home safe Andy. Ice is bad news.

According to, BWI Airport has averaged 3.6 degrees below normal this January and received eight inches of snow from the storm last night (1/25/04). That's a shade warmer than last Jan but nothing to sneeze at! Long-range forecasts are showing no real change in the weather-- a bit warmer going into early Feb but still running 5-10 degreen below normal (those 11-15 day forecasts are a bit uncertain but I think they can be useful for getting a sense for potential changes in weather patterns). All of this can only be good news for all the DCSki resorts!

Andy you're down in NC-- you guys getting much ice, or is that more interior?
