Super Bowl Blackout!!

Who wants to watch football????    ME!!!   But my good buddies Peter and his daughter Lauren, want to go skiing at Dodge Ridge.  The good part is that by noon, the snow will be bad enough for us to leave and return home in time to watch the game.  The bad part about skiing is that I have to be up at 5:00 am, but Peter always drives while Lauren and I play pillow fight until our usual Sonora Starbucks stop!!

The snow pack is non-existent ... but the new owners have purchased snow-grooming equipment that does an amazing job.  Pretty skimpy in places, there was still enough to have a great day.  If you start on the sunny slopes and move to the shaded ones later, it makes for good skiing.  Lauren, although previously not willing to leave the bunny slope, graduated to the big lift today before we packed up and headed home.

Did you watch the game??  Wow!!!  I was yelling and screaming for the 49ers to get their act together. Although I wanted them to win, I know San Francisco doesn't have any celebration money left after our Giants won the World Series.  About the time I thought they were dead in the water, the lights went out.  That was pretty crazy ... the "outside lines" produced a power surge???   It gave the 49ers a chance to turn it around, and they certainly gave it their all.  It just wasn't enough.  In this part of California, the Super Bowl was the talk of the town, since Colin Kaepernick is a local boy.  Also making the game more interesting was the two head coaches are brothers ... John and Jim Harbaugh.  When did you see that last???

Congrats to the Ravens ... it was one of the best games I've seen in awhile!!!
