anyone have any pictures of their skoolie lifestyle braving the snow that they're willing to share?



wish i could have gotten the camera out before half of it melted away.

Re: freezing yet?

Here's Roachie all frozen and abandoned for the winter. We've had temps in the teens (Fahrenheit) for nearly a month and a half now but mercifully we're due for a warmup soon.

I can confidently speak for all of us who are buried under feet of snow and we'd like to say, in the nicest possible way, that we hate you.

I can beat that - it was 80 degrees in Austin!

Glorious sunny day, with birds chirping, butterflies flitting about, and me swingin' in the hammock in my back yard in a t-shirt with a nice cold beer. Mmmmm... sweet spring in Central Texas!

... I just didn't want Bapos to be the only one being hated!

But don't worry my northern bus breathren, you will have your revenge come August, when the temps are 105 degrees every day down here.

Speak for yourself, it will be about 75 here. Unless the fog comes rolling in.
