    They had an ice-slab bar outdoors, next to a steaming kettle of apple cider.
    It is interesting that places are fixed up again and make neat places to eat.  

    I am glad you get to leave the cave!

      Cave-leaving is good for organization and morale.

      Went to Ogden to see "Story of the Eagles" at the other Egyptian Theater -- not the Egyptian Theater in Park City.

      The inversion is worst in the Salt Lake Valley -- it hasn't been quite so bad north of there.

          ... since an inversion traps pollution in the valleys.

          It has been anywhere from ten to fifteen degrees warmer in the mountains this year. Sometimes Park City enjoys temps in the 40's during Sundance while SLC just fumes.

          2013 is a colder winter -- my friends in Europe are coping with snow lately, and folks were complaining in San Francisco earlier in the month.

            that, if too much ice melts into the ocean from Greenland, it will disrupt the Gulf Stream.  Suddenly, I'm imagining a colder British Isles.  Yikes.

              ... are all-too-possible.

              This year, I'm happy to know that a shorter, milder winter than I'm used to suffering in Montana is the likeliest scenario for me.

              I am grateful for these nearby mountains at all times!
