The Ugly American
Idaho Falls, from my hotel room balcony.
The Grand Tetons. I couldn't get this close and not go see them. It took me about an hour to get there.
The pictures don't really do them justice. They're bigger than they look.
The view from my very good friend Jason's' back porch.
This is Big Southern Butte. It's big and it was to the south of the road, so I guess it's a descriptive name. It looked like a big ant hill out in the middle of the desert. To me anyway!
I took these on my recent trip to Idaho.
The Grand Tetons, a place called Big Southern Butte (very original name) and Idaho Falls. It was cold and windy the first couple of days in Idaho Falls, but it did get nice on the last day.
I removed it but...
I got spammed! I'm not sure who Natasha is or was, but apparently, she thinks that the few people that read this need to see her naked.
I guess that's what I get for not posting for a few weeks. I deleted the comment even though she must be real! How else could she have gotten through the awesome security protocols I have set up for my comments section?
I'll have a few pics for you from my trip last week. I was out in Idaho and Wyoming last week. Well, I was only in Wyoming for a little while. I had to go. I was about an hour away from the Grand Tetons and I just couldn't pass up the trip. To bad I couldn't get as close as I wanted, but I did get a few good pics...I think.
More of those things that make you go hmmm....
A few weeks ago the talking heads around here predicted a major winter storm. All the local schools closed and I never saw a snow flake. Last night, we got a dusting and it was snowing when I woke up this morning. It's been raining for days. It was 32 when I woke up and around 29 when the sun came up. The local talking heads said it's gonna get colder. So what do our local school systems do? Delay the start of the school day for two hours. Let's wait until the roads ice over, then send out the buses to pick up the kids!
I talked to a friend that owns a towing business and he told me there are over 65 accidents holding on the side of the interstate around here that he responds to and his stretch ain't that big! While I was talking to him he watched a van do a 360 and slam into a wall!
My outside thermometer at the house says it's 27 now, so it's really only gonna get worse. I just looked at the closing list, the Virginia Beach Beauty and Barber School is closed, but VB Public Schools have a two hour delay. I just heard on the radio that there's one school that's open on a road that the state police have closed! How stupid are our educators anyway? No wonder my parents sent me to private school!
I'm staying home, where it's warm.
You have a nice day!
