A snow covered Mount Elden in the morning.

By the way, the garden tractor with the snow plow blade are pretty much
useless when the snow is more than about six inches deep. The snow was
about a foot deep here and I had to do a lot of shoveling by hand.

This Saturday, keep an eye out for a tethered red balloon like this
These balloons will be part of the DARPA Network
contest. I am participating with Team
Fark and encourage
you to do the same. If we win, the prize winnings will all go to the
Tots charity. If you happen to see one of these balloons, which will
be located somewhere in the U.S.A. on Saturday,
December 5th, contact me by phone or email and I will pass the information
along to our team leader. Ideally you should get the balloon number and
also talk to the DARPA representative that will be in the area. If you
are unable to do this, at least let me know where you saw the balloon and
we can get someone to confirm the sighting.
Our team located 8 out of the 10 balloons, but unfortunately, MIT was the winner with all ten.
