Blizzard in Tunisia

Joshua, in front of the Amen Bank in Sousse, Tunisia
This fog rolled in like a blizzard. We were laying on our backs, watching the Leonids meteor shower. Joshua saw a couple meteors. I saw a few.

Las Vegas Ski Area

- It was a rough drive up the mountain, with the heaviest snowfall of the year. Security chains or 4wd were required to continue past a certain point. We parked on the side of the road and searched my brother-in-laws pick-up for chains. Someone came looking for help with a problem. We helped him, and he showed us our 4wd button low on the dashboard.

We were curious how this sports car got up the mountain.
Do you know what it is?

We assumed this was the home of some employee of the ski slope.
Joshua decided he would use a snowboard, rather than skis for his first attempt. He'd done snow boarding on video games, so he thought he could handle the real thing. His hands were frozen after our first descent. So that was all we were able to do the whole day.

That was OK with Sue, as she was content to hang out in the warm ski lodge. Our Africanized blood freezes below 80F. We never saw John, he was off skiing with his cousins, who left ahead of us from Las Vegas.
