    Hi guys,

    Over the past few years of viewing this forum, I realised that sometimes I have no idea what some of you guys are talking about! What I mean is that some of you use terms that I "think" I understand, yet aren't really sure of. And sometimes you refer to "general knowledge" about the climate of Ben Lomond. So could BLIM, Bulldozer and Brad maybe explain a little bit about Ben Lomond's climate, such as what conditions (winds and such) produce snow and why? And could you also maybe explain some of the slang and terms that you guys use, such as snot, gobbler, fluff etc? It'd me very much appreciated guys! [​IMG]

    Snow gobbler = (mist & drizzle the eats good snow)
    Huey = ( the snow god)
    puken = ( snowing heavily)
    dumping = ( snowing heavily)
    snot = ( Mixture of wet snow /sleet)

    Rain = Ra#n. Its bad luck to mention its proper spelling in forum talk as it a bad omen .

    Huey is the god of all water related board riding activities actually. I think he heads north for the Summer hence the lack of waves/snow.
