OK.. New thread

South Texas is having spring-almost-summer weather. High 80Fs and breezy. Showers in the afternoon.

I have some kind of vine growing on a wrought iron structure. It is doing fine, and is showing off its ONE flower again. Now, I appreciate ONE flower, but how come after 3 years it isnt covered with purple blooms?

Portugal and Sun go together quite naturally I've heard..so the cold must be very strange whenever it occurs..

Happy Holidays ..and hope your weather returns to normal

We're not having a White Christmas...only in the mountains to the east..30 miles or so. Clear, cold and sunny..not a warm Sun at all...must bundle up to go outside.

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas..

I can quite imagine the weather over there ET. Cold, but no snow at all?

Nothing very special for us here yesterday. No big celebrations for Christmas, but it was a public holiday.

Nice that you had a public holiday DX . As for snow..if it doesn't come to you..then you must go where there's snow. So with this in mind, a group from my family is taking off for Mt Hood and vicinity for 3 days..to play in the snow

Still cold and damp..and I'm staying home

I don't have a map ready..but Mt Hood is North and slightly East. Always a good place to find snow..and there's a great ski area too.

So it's near your home then? The rain never stops. It's raining again.

I think Mt. Hood is north of Mt. Rainier. Mt. Rainier is North of Mt. Saint Helens. Mt. Saint Helens is slightly north of the Washington/Oregon border...

If I remember right, Mt. Hood is northeast of Seattle

... or to the right center in this picture, from 1992...

Hi Zen. So Mt. Saint Helens is South of Mt. Hood. Nice pics man! I love that! Did you copyright it? I want to copy it into my hard drive.

Oops.. I forgot to say. It's been raining since this morning 3 am, and now is 5 pm!!!

The rain did become a drizzle at noon, but it became heavier and now it's a storm! Non-stop rain. I wonder how I'll ever get to go out.

...Just a slight Mountain relocation... Mt Hood is in Oregon, St Helens is slightly North-East and in Washington. Mt Rainer is the mountain you see from the Space Needle..

Very nice and..brisk pic Zen beautiful capture.

Whoops... I think I might have Mt. Adams confused with Mt. Hood (Was that right? Or I'd better hit the mapbooks )

DX - Press CTRL-F5 first. Now the image is copyrighted with the proper notice, and yes, you can save it to your harddrive for personal viewing.

Glad you like my pictures

There are so many mountains in the Rocky Mountains range. How do you all remember them?!

Ctrl-F5? What does it do, Zen?

I remember their names either because of the Mt. St. Helens eruption back in 1981, or from my trip to the area in 1992 (during which I fell in love with the mountains)

CTRL+F5 does a "Force Refresh"

Zen I think your Mountain pic is Mt Adams..and I have to admit I'm very fond of the entire Cascade Mountain Range... DX ...The Rocky Mt Range is to the East..and they begin as you travel eastward from Spokane..Salt Lake...Green River.. the small amount of geography I remember.

Colder than ever...grass is frozen in the mornings ..*brr*

Well I dunno. Never heard of the Cascading range. My knowledge of America is very limited.

Hot afternoon now...

Send some of that hot our way...might melt some of the ice on my sidewalks..I hate Rock Salt..bad for the grass

You are learning more all the time...and that's what we all have to do.. Cascade Range is what Zen mentioned he liked..they are a photographers dream...Crater Lake belongs to the Cascade Mt Range..

Geography Lesson time:

The Cascades is in the Northwestern states; the Sierras is in California (Southwestern states); The Rockies is in the Mid-West (Just east of the Cascades & Sierras, but some people consider the Cascades the "Rockies" as well), and it extends well into Western Canada. The Great Plains is in the middle of America; the Appalachians is the mountain range in the Eastern states that run from Georgia all the way up to Maine, but also have different names in some states (i.e. "White Mountains" in New Hampshire, "Green Mountains" in Vermont, the "Catskills" in New York, the Great Smokies down in North Carolina, etc.)

It is remaining cold and a breeze is coming off the lake..makes it feel even colder. Frosty mornings are making hot cocoa a preference at breakfast.

Thanks for the geography info Zen ..we treat the seperation of the Cascades identity from the Rockies much differently..as they stretch from No California to B.C., where both ranges mingle. There's an extensive basin between the Rockies and Cascades in Oregon and to the south..and desert through Nevada, where the Sierras take over. An overview topographically shows that the elevations are quite a ways above sea level

I can understand that local perception is always more definitive than what might be generalized from other parts of the country.

We did learn that in Geography. Just that we don't learn about the Cascade Range. Must be a good one, since the world's 5th deepest lake lies there.

Wish we could exchange temperatures now. We have such a hot day. Miraculously, it didn't rain today!

Nice to know geography is still taught in schools hehe

You have a great memory...wish I knew which four lakes are ahead of Crater Lake?? My brother works for the US Forest Service as a geologist..so much of what I know comes from him.

We are back to rain..so might not be a good time for an exchange..though the temps?? we could use warmer anytime.

I don't mind some rain really. The heat even now at 11am is terrible. I'm sweating away now.

My memory for geography stuff is ok. I can't say it's good. I love memorising countries and their special areas. I used to be able to remember all of the countries' capitals. Unfortunately, I switched to memorising star and constellation names. Now I can't remember much of either subjects.

That sounds normal DX ...so long as you don't call The Big Dipper a capital of someplace ...heh?

We are colder than ever...if it rained it might be ice pellets instead ...or like the other day when it rained..it caused warmer temps to occur Now I'd like that.
