Here in the Great Lakes region, checking up on local forecasts is a must before leaving for work! It's usually around +5C to -20C this time of year, and lately we've been having more cold stuff than I'd like. Lots and lots of snow too, thanks to those dang mobile phones!

Global warming huh? Sure... the evidence is right in front of us. It's right up there with unicorns, honest politicians, and fewest dropped calls. You see it in print and on TV, and somebody who is an expert swears it's real once in a while, but don't ask too many questions or you'll upset somebody!

If anyone needs me, I'll be letting my truck idle and burning a pile of styrofoam coolers in my backyard!

We used to use 155 mm recoiless cannons.

When I was a kid I would watch workers fire off 75mm and 105 mm recoilless rifles for avalanche control. I would hear them shoot them off in the early mornings after a storm. I read a few years ago that the 105 that I watched being fired was being set to Iraq. Pretty sad when our troops are using 60 year old stuff taken back from the US Forestry Service. I don't think the cannon you saw being used was recoilless. They are relatively small and what you are describing is huge.

France dispatched 800 Vespa Scooters that had recoilless rifles on them.

I'm hoping for a break in the weather so I can go riding tomorrow. The last two days have been washouts.

Connie, you are correct, 105, not 155. They would wake you up in the early morning though. BOOM! http://www.avalanche-center.org/News/2006/2006-01-19-caltrans.php
