Winter seems to have arrived

Saturday, December 5th, dawned with a very cold rain. Well, it didn’t really ‘dawn’ but just got wetter and a bit lighter. By 10am the rain had become small flakes, and by noon it was snowing in earnest. The total in Columbia, Md. was only about 2 inches (50.,8 cm) but it looks like my kayaking is over for a while.

Geocaching and posting about kayaking will continue, later this week.

In the mean time congratulations go out to MIT for winning the DARPA Network Challenge! That team found all 10 Red Baloons. The Groundspeak team of geocachers were only able to report on 8 baloons, but Groundspeak will still donate the $10,000 they were going to add to the $40,000 prize money. The donation reportedly will go to DonorsChoice.org. Way to go Geocachers!

  1. I really like what you wrote here. Thanks! I have been testing an ipod Nano lately for my geocaching. Have you ever tried that? It’s pretty cool actually, and works well. Visit my site if you’d like to read more.
