It's that time of year again -- the leaves are changing, the air is starting to cool, and this can mean only one thing: ski season is around the corner and Warren Miller's 54th annual film "Journey" is going to get everyone in the mood.

Free Friday films continue
The free Friday Film Series continues at 7 p.m. tonight in Centennial Hall, 124 10th St., with "Run Lola Run" (1988, Germany, directed by Tom Tykwer). The movie follows flaming-red-haired Lola after she is given minutes to get $100,000 to her boyfriend before the mob kills him. The scenario plays out three different times, three different ways, each building in suspense to a different outcome. "Run Lola Run" was an Audience Award winner at the Sundance Film Festival.
A few words from Dave
Steamboat Springs' Dave Gardner just arrived in Antarctica for a winter of work. On Tuesday he wrote: "At -63 degrees, the boogers in your nose freeze pretty much instantly. It's been THAT cold down here during my first week back in Antarctica. The winds have been relentless and Condition 2 (outside travel not recommended) has been the norm.
"Not many cargo planes have made it down from Christchurch during the past week, which is a blessing on one hand because I don't have to work, but on the other, the base is getting low on toilet paper.
"It's so crazy being here after such a great summer in Steamboat. I'm not quite ready for this yet. Imagine going from 75 degrees and beautiful autumn colors to this in a matter of days.
"It's Sunday morning down here (your Saturday) -- a day when people sleep in (recover from Saturday night), start their day with Bailey's and coffee, then head to the galley for omelets or waffles.
"Me -- I got up early, went to the gym, THEN had Bailey's and coffee with my waffle. I'm off to watch the classic Antarctic video, "The Thing" in my room and maybe take a walk this afternoon, braving the God-forsaken torrent happening outside."
