Festival? It's just a camping trip in the desert. You'd be better off going to Lake Wobegon.

*shakes fist*

well, at least its decently warmer today. not enough to melt anything (even in direct sun), but just enough to dislodge clumps of snow and ice from the rooves of the 4 story residence buildings.

its a lovely feeling when a snowball-sized clump of ice hits the ground a few feet away from you...that and the "beware of falling ice" signs.

Yeah, but at least we don't have rattlers, scorpions or brown recluses :lol:

It's a balmy 1 degrees now. My usual commute on the Autobahn (mercury, ya know what im refering to?) was doubled due to the ice and idiots, not sure which was worse, but both represent job security :lol:

Welcome to eplaya mg34. We'll take your lakes, but you can keep your purple rain, but if you can find a way to combust it, it may prove useful on the playa. heck, even one of those lakes may prove useful on the playa as well, we can all go water-skiing behind the Captain's good ship Land Yacht.
:D
Excuse me Ma'am, your going to feel a small prick.

It was in the mid 80's here in L.A. I've had the top down all week!

(I love rubbing it in. I grew up in Ohio so I know what you guys are going through. It was almost an epifany when I realized I didn't have to put up with that crappy weather by just moving to California! LOL)

Hey now, it's not like you walk into a building and you get stung, bitten, or devoured. I have never even seen a scorpion in my house *knocks on wood*.

:shock: I can deal with the snakes, it's the spiders that get me. Let's just say I didn't rush right out and see arachnophobia. scorpions are kinda in the middle for my trip-out factor. No worries on that here though, it's 8.1 degrees out. Thank Dog for electric blankets :D

i dislike most creepy crawlies. seeing a spider will cause me to horrifically smoosh it with something, then spend the net 5 minutes paranoid, waiting to smoosh the next that reatrs its head from wherever they spawn in.

scorpions would freak me out. I have absolutely no intention to be pricked by one of those things.

seeing one on/near me would probably result in a horrifing scream, followed by a precisioned spasm of pain (for the creepy crawlie).

Then it might be disturbing to know that you are always within three feet of a spider. Read the second from the last paragraph in this article if you really want to get a little creeped out. http://www.natureofcreation.org/articles/spiders.htm

In certain areas, there are so many spiders that they will cover the ground.
A friend had to spend the night in a car in california with spiders covering the car and trying to get in through vents and doors.
Many years later, he is still twitchy about spiders.
And he is so fearless about heights that he used to climb flagpoles as a little kid.
I would have implicit faith in him in any combat situation, providing spiders weren't involved.

Still think the playa is the harshest environment?
Dream about spiders a bit.
