We did get more snow over the last day or so, and it's even more beautiful.   And weirdly enough, the mountain that was originally dubbed "twin peaks" is just to the west of the ridge in the photo.  The real "twin...

This was taken this morning at our exit.  I thought the effect of the powdered snow on top of the mountains with the circling clouds was cool.  Too bad I'm a terrible photographer who was driving and using an iPhone camera... I'm sure we're...

North Bend isn't the only city doing this.  I got good and lost in Port Orchard.  One roundabout led to another then to a third.  Actually, I think you have to be drunk to use them.  Or maybe circles just make me dizzy.  I am...

But how does one know where to go? what speed to travel? when a bend is coming, when some danger may be ahead? Do they all have maps in their laps or those infernal gps thingies harping at them???!!! Much more dangerous in my mind. Yes by all means...

When an individual wants to be trendy, he/she buys a new pair of shoes.  When a town wants to be trendy, what does it do?  Right now, it buys itself a shiny new roundabout. I live in North Bend, WA, population: not very many.  Within...

I thought Wash DC was the only city infatuated with circles. In NJ they have these things where you have to turn right to go left. I think these are all sobriety tests in diguise.

At least most of your cities are built on a grid type system. In England I still get lost in my home town of Newcastle everything is built in curves and dead end streets, Still it's wonderful to hear you say you need to cling to someone when you leave...

That does explain the problem with roundabouts.  In parts of Europe they are taking down all road signs.  Claims are that it is safer too. Hmm.

Julie H.  That is the same logic used in removing all traffic signs along parts of roads and intersections in either Norway or Sweden.  Causes one to pay more attention to the surroundings.

That occurs when a GeeCast is posted to multiple channels. If you're viewing this from Rosemary's personal channel, then the "posted by" tag appears on comments posted from Biggest, Tallest, or Most Interesting Building in Your Town ; or vice-versa.

Oh Lori, so close....it was "dog and tots".  For some unknown reason, they serve tater tots instead of fries there...with Thousand Island dressing on the side in little paper cups.
