Exercise Extreme Caution

Black ice is no joke. And it is nothing but black ice from St. George all the way to Cedar City. To make it to worse, it is still snowing. YOU MUST HAVE CHAINS OR YOU WILL BE STRANDED.

That was the bad news. Now the good news. IT IS SICK HERE. Dumping as we speak and sick. Knee deep or more, and no end to the snow in sight. They are saying another foot or more tonight and tomorrow.

So if you have a huge SUV and chains, head on up. If you are driving the old Honda Accord, stay in Vegas or LA or Phoenix. It is not a good weekend to sleep in the car. As for me, we may end up stuck up here for several days and miss work. I hate it when that happens.

Today was Jarrett's second day on snow and he had a blast. Jake was talking trash to me today before we hit the terrain park. I told him to put up or shut up. He asked what I would do if he threw a 180 and rode off the jump switch. I figured I would humor him and said if he started throwing 180's we would buy an Xbox 360 for the condo. I really hate that kid sometimes. He threw one the first time out of the gate. He is riding parallel like a champ and starting to throw stuff off the jumps. I was literally shocked how much better his form is. But in steeps and deeps, I still was smoking him. He is going to try a 360 pretty quick. I am working with him on pole placement in his turns and riding switch.
