Just curious, was the dry adiabatic lapse rate something you and Weir mulled over in the parking lot while sneaking a butt?
On a more local note I picked up my pass and got a few creaky turns in today. Earliest I’ve ever ridden a lift according to the calendar. The ponds and small lakes in the Bow Valley are frozen over and filled with skaters and shinny games. Should have thrown the skinny skis in as well and gotten some klicks in on Frozen Thunder as well at the Nordic centre. Feels like the glaciers have held off disappearing for another season.
My sympathies out to the farmers in the last couple hundred km of the drive here with the tens of thousands of acres of snow laden unharnessed crops. The global warming thing is a bitch for them.
