    Accidental nap :)

    I slept inside Sunday night --midnight till around 0730. Went outside to measure snow, it was 4.5 inches. Just to kill time I set up a Blackbird on the carport, look at the thermo and it read 19F. Threw a Winter Mamba in the Blackbird and a Te-wa Winter Coat underneath and then lied down.
    Next thing you know it was 1:30 in the afternoon.....so even after sleeping in a bed from midnight 'till morning the magic of the Blackbird gave me 5 more hours of sleep!
    When I woke I again measured the snow depth...up to 8.5 inches, then I packed up and got off the mountain before I became snowbound!

    I've got no chance of getting away with that at home, she'd be prodding me in the backside with her broom handle

    Good stuff MM. The Mamba and Winter Coat together make a fabulous set of insulation indeed.

    I've been yelled at far too many times to lay down in a hammock unless I have ample naptime. Isn't fair! I have all these good books to read, but never get very far if I try reading from a hammock. Just not fair!

    It got above kinda of warm here today (low 40's) and wife suggested I hang my hammock in the back yard for a nap.

    Gunner, I'd suggest you do what the general's general suggests and get that nap in.
    At home we haven't been above freezing for 5 days now and probably
    won't be for 3 more days. The snow falling now on Roan will be there until May.
