    Russian rocket disintegrates over Colorado last night and parts of it land in Wyonming...

    What next?

    I guess the avalanche.
    The below is an Australian website which explains Jan. 7th date.

    A MASSIVE avalanche outside Denver, Colorado has left cars buried and possibly pushed others off the highway leading to a popular ski resprt.

    The slide buried at least two cars, state Patrolman Eric Wynn told CNN.

    Crews were probing the area for other vehicles, including any that may have gone off the road, Stegman said.

    The avalanche was described as 100 feet (30 metres) wide and 15 feet (4.5 metres) deep.

    Fox News has reported that rescuers have so far dug out seven people with one being taken to hospital.

    Berthoud Pass is the main route to one of Colorado's largest skiing areas, Winter Pass.

    Latest on the net about the avalanche http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070106/...rado_avalanche
    How does the link thing work? On the blog it works a bit different. I can put a word and then hit it and it gives you the link. Kind of like it is hidden. Somebody educate me about the link thing.

    I get that, but what I want it to do is let me type the word like Avalanche and then underneath the word is the link. You don't see it. Can you did that on this forum.
