A post from the airport in Dallas (DFW) via a wireless connection.

Thanks to my buddy Phil for the wireless card that made this post possible.

I wasn't able to find a free "hotspot" and had to pay for the connection, but the $6.95 for the connection through midnight today is much better than the "$0.50/minute" they want at the "laptop kiosk" to my right.

I land back in Calgary at about 2200 hrs this evening. Tomorrow I'm in the office and then first thing Friday morning I'm off to work the World Cup Races at Lake Louise.

They've already had more than a metre of snow at the top of the mountain (120 cm) -- which bodes well -- not only for the races, but for the general public as well. It's been a few years since we've had lots of snow and I for one am excited.

It's been a while since we've had too much snow for the races (believe it or not this can be a problem. If it continues to snow heavily, crews will need to "groom" the course -- with snowcats, shovels and skis -- to remove the excess) but it is better than not having enough ;-)

Check out the Snow Report for the latest conditions.
