Number 1 Son on the Mountain

Postby Petros » Wed Aug 03, 2016 11:08 pm

Y en el monte - nada, nada, nada dice San Juan de la Cruz.
He drove the team's newly acquired truck up to the piece of land in the Colorado mountains that pertains to his musical associate. Over roadway newly strewn by the authorities with what he describes as rocks. One chunk of which flew up and breached the oil pan or something like. Which has stranded him until help can arrive.

He has a working phone and seems to be safe and provided with provisions - But I see cause for prayer in this.

Well, they are the Rocky Mountains. :)

True enough - but in your [plural] likde of work it might be preferable to rock AND roll.

On which note - a correction, it is not the newly acquired truck, it is the rather aging Honda.

I should update that he is safely down from the mountain and the breached oil pan is being repaired. The old one may be dedicated to Tin Pan alley?

Glad he's safe now, but it seems obvious to me that much of Colorado is too rugged for human safety and should be roped off.
And the winters! Around here, frost on the windshield of the cars causes utter panic, followed by a stampede to the grocery store.

Far too true - the dear boy put in some years in Chicago before he went west, young man. He found the parts he was residing in scary and depressing.

Yep. The year we were in Austin, to which I owe much though it was far from fun at the time, one day there was a dusting - MIGHT have come to a quarter inch accumulation where it drifted - they shut down the schools and probably most of the businesses. People madly rushing to get chains n their tires.

Ha! We don't even notice snow unless it's a foot or more deep. 8)

Depends on the texture - 2-3 inches - wet stuff - driving home from town had the car turned 180 degrees. I grant you, on foot it takes more as that.

Snow? What is the big deal? It is white, powdery, cold, melts, and is slippery on some occasions. It is just a matter of what you are knowledgeable about. In Colorado my mother said they never used chains in the winter time. Two years ago I drove 200 miles in Iowa in sub freezing weather with snow storms and had no problems with snow or ice. But, in California most people do not know what snow is and are in too much of a hurry, so, they enforce chain use and people still slide off the road.

I sometimes believe the papers; I'm still waiting to hear California has slid off the road into the Pacific.

Sounds like the way most of Texas treats a little snow, when we happen to get it. :lol:
