Another *@#!*# Day In Paradise

Snowday! 4 times over.

Jim and Vicky (and Denali and twins and dogs) live ridiculously close to Park City in Utah. So close, in fact, that you can check on the weather at three resorts by looking out the front door. They were kind enough to host Scott and me for a few days, plus truck us around in the family Suburban to play in the snow. The Canyons Resort and Park City Resort were delightfully deep, it snowed day and night and then we got a bluebird day on the look-between-your-knees slopes of Snowbird. Yes, another *@#!*# day in paradise.
