New Job.

Wheee I got a Job at cypress Mountain. I ove it up there, mind you, today was an unusual day for the mountain. It was socked in most the day, with heavy snow 25c over night, plus another 10cm from 7am to 3pm. At one point visability was down to 10ft. I was working at the barricade at that point. Joy I just love it when I inform people they can't park past the barricade and they tell me to F.... off. He got ejected from the mountain, plus his truck was towed. OPH will back their staff up there, its great to have a job, where I dont have to worry about the ignorant ones.

Grin, 4000 feet closer to god on Sunday

It is different work... I'm 6'1, over weight and have been pushing a computer for 20 odd years. This past year I have worked nothing but hard physically demanding jobs.

Cypress is by far the hardest work I have ever done. We moved a mountain of snow today. We had to dig out the light poles & power wires for the IOC/VanOC for the Free Style jump area. The elctricians that put it together last summer, were a bunch of idiots, they didn't take into count that they get 15' to 30' of snow. Today I dug a hole 6' across, by 17' long, by 14' deep (I was at ground level) to find a small coil of 3" diameter wire, and we still never found the ground wire (a single strand of 12g copper wire)

I'll be a little stiff in the morning, but once I'm awake and moving I'm fine. I move a ton of snow every day. In the last 5 days I have gained 12lbs and lost 2" or more off my belly. My fat *** is a whole lot smaller .

I had to dig my way out of the hole. Nice thing when your that deep down, the snow is really packed down. Walking down the end of Raven run was not fun, I sank upto my chest a couple of times and had to dig my way out. then it was sortta fall/walk the rest of the way down.

I figure by the time spring hits, I'll have moved a couple million tons of snow and have the body to show for it...

Damn I'll look good at the beach
