Just move to California, Legolas. Sunny, in the 80's, and everything except Magic Mountain is open today. ;-)

And it looks like the weather is cooperating. Forecast in the upper 60's/ low 70's for Friday - when I head to Knott's

Nasai, you shouldn't complain! Your up there in Seattle with the same weather all year round! Never get any snow, never get any "real" weather besides that mist that everyone up there calls rain. Move to Michigan and you'll learn about real winters! :)

Unfortunately (or fortunately?!), Michigan hasn't had its fair share of "real" winters lately... I want to see 3-4feet of snow again!!

Fafolguy - ride Xcelerator first thing, and until you heart's content. It tends to go down in the mid-afternoon due to computer errors.

Have fun ;)

only thing about snow is you can go sledding on it and if you engineer a secondary hill you can get pretty good airtime sometimes...

and yes, tempting me with California IS mean!! i couldn't make it there no matter how much i want it...:(

to you i say:

auta miqula orqu!!! (Elvish curses on you for being mean!!)

Well, there is an alternative to moving to California...

You can always take a trip to "The Sunshine Sate" Florida, down here we ride all year long...high around 70 and low around 50, not bad for January and the dead of Winter. I'd say that's Coaster riding weather, wouldn't you?

PS

We also have some pretty good Beamers down here in our state...

Today is the coldest day this season in miami. It even got into the 50's! Two days ago it was normal at around 87°, maybe I'll go swimming tomorrow since I live on the ocean, and it not to cold go swimming.

You guys hate me. Oh well... have fun at 0°.

This offseason is really hurting me. I popped in Robb Alvey's 2001 video, and tortured myself more.

Don't listen to them, LLG....that's SOUTH Florida weather....we're getting frost tonight in Gatorville...:(.

Besides, the SoCal'ers really have the coasters, the Beemer showroom isn't really *all that*....

The ONLY thing I miss about living in Florida is the year round coaster season. The northern season seem all too short sometimes. That's what they make vactions for though, right? My 2003 season should start in roughly 3 weeks (and I was just in Orlando in October, so you do the math:) )

The occasional nice day during the winter does make it that much harder though...

Finally somebody explains that Orlando isn't that great. Yes, we have coasters, but they get really old, really fast.

Add legoland to that list. They aren't open on Tuesdays and Wednesdays except for summers and holidays. But still, you've got about 6 parks you could visit on a weekday.

Its soooo warm today. Sunny, low humidity and in the high 70s. And night time lows have been warm lately. Good weather to ride perilous plunge in.

And yes, do hit xcelerator first. Its RARELY closed for the entire day, opening to closing, so your best bet is a morning ride.

I hate you Bass... well not really.

Too bad I get to head up to PKI in less than 2 weeks! If I cant ride `em, might as well see `em in person! (I hate living so far away from PKI)

Tel me about it! We had 27 inches on Christmas and close to 20 more last Friday and Saturday. Unfortunately, I wrecked my car on the way back to school Friday afternoon. :( All of these things and no coasters are making me want to move away from snow FOREVER!
