I've reported this to Blogspot twice (because if it's happening to me, it's happening to others) but they have completely ignored my messages.
Gunga la gunga, as they say.

It's winter in Yellowstone
And the gentle breezes blow
Seventy miles an hour
At twenty-five below
Oh, how I love Yellowstone
When the snow's up to your butt
You take a breath of winter
And your nose gets frozen shut
Yes, the weather here is wonderful
So I guess I'll hang around
I could never leave Yellowstone
'Cause I'm frozen to the ground!!
(Passed on to me by a friend; if you know the origin please tell me!)

I took this photo from the air on the approach to Salt Lake City in February of 2007. Around that time I was having a bunch of molars crowned. This absolute desecration made me think of what the dentist must have seen as he fixed things in the back of my mouth. It's certainly what it felt like to my half-numb tongue.
It is also strongly reminiscent of Mrinz's photo of the gold mine near her New Zealand home. Of course, being Americans, we have to do everything bigger (preferably biggest) if not better. The Kennecott Copper mine has the distinction of being the world's largest man made excavation and is featured by the state of Utah as an attraction!

Sorry, I'm not in a generous mood right now.
