blackturtle.us: I noticed a small amount of snow on the Slate Range this morning also. Based on what I saw, I'd say that the snow level was down to 5000 feet. I'm not sure what the official weather service measurement is, but I know that the peaks in the Slate Range are somewhere above 5000 feet and well below 6000 feet.

recluse: I'm doing my best not to be harsh, but that's about the worst song I've ever heard. Who the hell even lives in a double-wide? Whoever wrote the lyrics was totally clueless! If it was a joke it wouldn't be so bad, but the lady sings it like she's serious. People shouldn't write serious songs about things they know nothing about!

recluse: I promise I won't be harsh, but I will be fair, albeit brief so as to avoid listing all the flaws with the song! Basically, what we have is an airhead who drove by Trona once or twice collecting first impressions which turned into false assumptions which she then put into a simple-minded song. As for the performance, the guitars are high quality, but the guitar playing is strictly mediocre or minimally competent.

recluse, tronagirl, dzrtdwg: Definitely not an impressive song, but I'm sure the thoughtless songwriter meant no harm. Sometimes people fall in love with their lame little ideas without really thinking things through. It never ceases to amaze how clueless people can be, but I'll refrain from saying more since I'm trying hard not to be too harsh!!! LOL

tronagirl, dzrtdwg, MojaveMike: I appreciate your restraint and the way you took it so easy on the _thoughtless songwriter_. The song was what they call cringeworthy, but you all managed to be fair and reasonable in your assessment of the song. Bless your hearts! You succeeded where most would have failed!

recluse: I just checked out the views and likes and dislikes on the video and there are fewer than fifty views, three likes, and so far no dislikes. So, I'd say people here were pretty restrained. It might be a little bit petty to leave a dislike, but then again it is a pretty crappy song! LOL
