Suicide Off The Grand Canyon

What a way to go.

Park officials received a report of someone over the edge near Mather Point on the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park at about 5:40 a.m. Friday. Responding rangers spotted a body between 400 and 600 feet below the rim, and witnesses told them that they saw the man run up to and over the edge.

Finally, Some Snow!

My friends, this is what I have been waiting for. I’m looking of my office building now and can see out about 500 feet. The roads are covered and I’m hearing were going to get a good 3-5 inches. Not the many feet of snow that some parts of the country get but enough to reek havoc on this town. 4 WD will likely be engaged today.

The forcast for tomorrow is cold and sunny which means melting snow turning to ice.

[Updated:] Well it’s turned out to be kind of anti-climatic. About 10am it was snowing hard. The roads were covered in it. Then came news that several roads were closed and the hill up to Rio Rancho had 7 accidents on it, it was closed as well.

About 12:30 I decided to leave work, everyone else had. The snow had pretty much stopped. The roads were clear and a good bit of the snow had melted. It’s still pretty cold under 30 degrees.

Still more snow is expected.
