Old Forge, NY Trail Report 3-10-12

I'd like to Thank everyone who stayed with me this winter! Some of you have been staying at Christy's for 20 plus years and some new this year. One of the great things about being a small motel, is you get to know your guests, the guests get to know each other and you all have become part of the winter family here at Christy's Motel. Thanks Again and have a great spring, summer and fall and hope to see you next season!

We woke up to 4 inches of snow this morning and with the snow from yesterday morning it brought conditions back around that you are able to get out and have some fun. So for those who rolled the dice on this weekend and came up, lucked out!

Here's Today's Video for..........

    1. I said I was coming to the Sno-fest no matter what, till I saw the Temps this past week and when I saw the Web Cams, I decided not to come. What a mistake. After seeing the Web Cams today of the Trails and Stillwater I was sick. Today would have been the last harah. Keep up the good work on the Cams and the reports, and hope you have a good Spring, Summer and Fall and we shall see you next Winter.

  7. Answer: (just some quick trivia as we watch the mud take

    Women in the opera are usually bulkier, as they have wider vocal range, and can sing louder. When they say 'It isn't over until the fat lady sings', they are referring to the last note. Traditionally in an opera, the very last note, or the finale is sung by a women, and it is either quite loud, or loud and high. Now you can see the combination of bulky women with the ending of the opera, or anything else.

    More specifically, the Fat Lady is likely to be Brunhilde, who sings the final aria in Gotterdemerung, Wagners last opera in the Ring cycle. Brunhilde is usually seen as a Viking warrior with winged helmet and spear and has a suitable stature, i.e. impressive, large.....or Fat!
    When she stops singing ( apart from a one-liner from someone else) its over.
