Such a great day to enjoy the new year.

Still enjoying the snow at the ranch, great way to kick off 2015

Great afternoon to sit by the fire and read a good book,

I don't know how long the snow will hang around, so I'm going to enjoy it as much as I can.

First storm of 2015

On New Years eve 2014, our area was hit by a large snow storm, and low temperatures. It started snowing around 11 pm on the 31st, and didn't stop until midnight the next day. The town of Kingman saw a good 6-8 inches of snow, and the higher elevations way over a foot. ADOT had to close several major roads and the interstate due to the snow and later on ice. We knew the storm was going to be big so we spent the evening in town, unfortunately we wouldn't be able to make it back out to the ranch for two more days, and then only using a borrowed 4 wheel drive to make the trip! Here are some of the first pictures taken by Franken-daughter.

Apparently I just don't have time for that...

Between work, family, and life in general, I just can't seem to find the time I want to blog, and with that said, here is an update...

Happy Mothers day to all the moms in cyberspace and real life. This weekend we did make time to drive down to the river and spend sometime with the wife's family during their 27th annual family reunion at the Colorado river. It was a great day, very cool 87 degrees which is a welcome change from years ago, when it topped 130! Being the desert rat I am that is even too hot for me!

Before making the trip down, I did stop in to get a set of new tires on Soul1 (since we have two now) I decided to go a size bigger, and a little meatier than the last time opting for the Yokohama YK580. I have to say, only a couple days into the new tire, if anyone has a small anything and lives in the sticks needing a really good off road capable, good milage, quite tire... check these out.

If I ever get the time, I'll give a whole review...
