  • Conquering the Snow Mountain

    conquering-the-snow-mountain-behind-atomic-athletic
    No tricks. Bowling Green, OH is the flatest place on Earth. That Jeep is easily 10-12 feet below the top of that mountain of snow.

    Well, after breaking every conceivable variation of winter records, it's time to have some fun with the ridiculousness of it all.

    OH, THE HUMANITY!!!

    Here is 6 year old Jackson "Conquering the Mountain" behind my office.  Yes, you are seeing the top of a Jeep Cherokee.   I estimate that the top of the snow mountain is easily 10-12 feet above the cars in the parking lot.  We got another 5 inches last night...

    Stuck inside again, so I'm working on the web site.  I got the 1 1/2 Pound Wooden Indian Clubs on the site. Check them out here: http://atomicathletic.com/store/index.php/indian-clubs-wooden-1-1-2-pound-pair.html .

    All the best,

  • Soaked My Hat

    Yep. I soaked my fleece hat in sweat. I was shoveling. It was disgusting, but

    kept my head warm anyway.

    Here's my rant. The county finally lifted the Level 3 Snow Emergency, so we can drive without getting a ticket. Sure, it was record snow, 22 inches, and record cold. I don't care. Forty five minutes north of us, in Michigan, it's not a problem.

    The Good Side: Hey, I got in some great lifting in the home gym and moved tons of snow for the cardio. As I read the news, it looks like I am far from the only one to be in this situation. CNN reported that Atlanta had a temperature of 26 degrees, while Anchorage, AK was at 34. Crazy. Here, we were down to -14, so today's 18 degrees felt like a heat wave. I heard the wind chill got down to less than -40. Nasty. This morning, our packing tape was shattering in the warehouse. You read it here first. Packing tape shatters if it gets too cold. So we brought all the tape in, turned on electric heaters and got a few things taken care of. Tomorrow will be a better day.

    Keeping it basic. I did a lot of snow blower work this morning and shoveling out the car. I had the good old reliable pick-up truck done yesterday morning. Good old GM knows how to make a truck that starts right up in the cold... knock on wood.

    All the best,
