It's been great! It's about -20F, light wind, sunny skies (24 hours a day).
We are sitting on 2 miles of snow, but we haven't had more than a few
millimeters all summer.

I'm off to McMurdo for a week of "R&R" (so they call it). Sigh... back
down to sea level... Classically speaking, I just grabbed a copy of
xelf - a multi-1802 emulator that was announced on the cosmacelf Yahoo
group this week. Looks pretty nice.
