    Wow! That cave is really cool.... (no pun intended). Is there still a restaurant in Corvallis called "The Joust and Tourney"? My brother was head chef there back in about 1980.

    Honestly, I don't know if there is a place called "The Joust and Tourney". I haven't eaten out since getting to corvallis in Sept of this year. I'm actually back in Everett for now for the holidays. It hurts to move. LOL

    I might try to make more tomorrow! LOL

    It's so unusual to get so much snow. Most of the time if you tried to do a snow angel with the snow we get, you'd hit your head on a rock and injure your back falling on the ground.

    And for anyone who does get this snow normally, probaby thinks we're idiots to go play in it for 6 hours. [​IMG]

    Boo-Hoo! Why can't we have snow? I haven't seen it in years.

    That's the prettiest snow angel I've ever seen.
