I have just taken a new job in Great Falls, Montana. A new state and new areas to explore.

Happy to see Kentucky and Louisville in the Sweet 16. Louisville has its hands full with Michigan State. I doubt I will see the game.
There was a St Patricks Day party at a nearby office building that GNU and I tried to attend. There were some late evening deliveries, but it looked like there was a gap of free time. They had cooked up an 80 LB pig for the event. The Kentucky / Iowa State game was on, so I sat down and saw a bit of it. Then the phone rang and I found myself taking an order outside in the Tahoe. They wanted the order early next day, so we had to go back. So much for the party, as well as having a chance to see Louisville in the late game.
Even when there is a chance to do something fun, I just avoid it when it is fishing season as I know it will not actually happen.
Speaking of Kentucky, Big Blue fans are getting a bit tired of that 20 year old Duke Miracle. You know, when Christian Laettner caught the long inbound pass, turned and hit that last second shot to beat KY? College basketball fans know the play. It still gets played for various reasons all these years later. Right now it is featured in a UPS commercial being played during the tournament. And last night on ESPN SportsCenter they showed it as a comparison to a similar play that happened in the pro game that night. If you google just LAETTNER, “laettner buzzer beater” comes right up.
It WAS a huge play in a huge game, so it will probably live on and on and on....
I did not go in today, but they were pretty busy. Two guys were there all day until 10:30 tonight. They had a pickup last night to get three pallets of frozen food to bring back for storage. We were told to be there at 1:00 AM. It was not ready, and the driver ended up waiting until 4 AM. Today we had a delivery scheduled at a certain time. They loaded up the truck and took it to the boat. The boat was behind schedule on their end, so we had to take the load back and wait.
REALLY looking forward to vacation.
Nosey was back last night. It was very windy. After he ate, he curled up and slept on the chow porch. Have not seen that since the Hoppy Days.
Yesterday the weather was BRUTAL. 45 mph winds with a 17 degree temperature. That converts to about -136 degree wind chill (approx). Blowing snow, 100% whiteout at times.
They used my yard as a place to pile up snow after plowing nearby. Now I got a 20 foot mountain that is part of the view. A pickup truck below my house is slowly being enveloped by the snow. Mirrors disappear overnight. The windshield is partially covered.
My grill on the porch is completely covered.
The drift outside my window seems to be shrinking, but I now see that the base snow is rising. Three feet deep where the wind cannot get to it.
