Yep, that sounds about the right date. Back then we had another Las Vegas resident (Eric Darr) who hung out in this and the TPBM threads. If I remember correctly, he said McCarron Airport was shutdown for a couple days because of that storm. I remember some pictures he posted from around his house, too, though I don't know exactly where in the valley he lived at the time. He's in St. George, Utah now.

I remember that, because I was astonished it would get shut down with just a few inches of snow, until I was told that they do not have a single piece of snow removal equipment there. I think it was just for a day, but not certain.

Y'all should'ave moved up here for the winter. Coldest and snowiest winter in 36 years. It started snowing in the middle of November and never melted. We usually get a few warm spells where the majority of the snow will melt away, well we never got them. All the snow that fell, stayed. For once, the crews were not plowing the roads down to the pavement, they left a layer of packed snow on the roads. It was smoother than the pavement. It was so cold that salt stopped working and they resorted to just sand.

Best kind of winter ever!

Or, as I remember his explanation - It takes a while for five guys with push-brooms to clear the snow off the runways. :lol:

Hmmm... Maybe I'm confusing it with our local conditions. I got to take two days off from work that week because the highways here were impassable.

It could start snowing at 5pm on December 24th and dump a foot or so....then it could warm up on the 26th and melt away until next year.

Nope. Start snowing by Dec 1st at the latest, keep snowing until Feb 28th. Or, temperature plummets mid November and allows all the ponds to freeze into some wonderful skating rinks, then it starts snowing. None of this melting nonsense.

Good memory, but it was in the TPBM Chat thread -

Cause 5 guys with push brooms is no way to remove snow from a runway.

Today Heather and I walked all over down town Seattle... probably walked at least 10 miles. Just got back to the hotel from our 3 mile round trip walk to Glazer's Camera store. Bought a B&W 10 stop ND filter and black rapid strap. LOVE the strap.... should have replaced the OEM strap a long time ago. Instantly sold on the black rapid. I like trying in person so I get something I like and we have no camera stores close to Pendleton anymore.

Shot motocross for the first time today. My cousin was racing so I decided to go out. I really need to get some good ND's it was way too bright out today since the race was from 1:30-3:30 so I ended up using some cheap CPL and ND I got free with my Sigma 35mm.

Loads of fun though, I want to get back out there. They certainly move fast, and my panning needs a little work. But anyways, here are a few speed edits.

I need to take a closer look at this Surface's monitor and it's colors. It stills needs some tweaking.

Glazer's was okay then?

Thanks, Dan! First time I've shot anything other than family gatherings in awhile. I have a lot of respect for photogs who shoot those types of events on a regular basis. You're at the will of the weather and those guys are shot quick, it's hard to lock on focus.

Better than Ok... They were excellent. Very friendly and helpful, even opened packages to see if the items would work for me.

Motocross is tough....Indoor motocross is slightly easier, as you have consistent lighting.
