    Thats not actually snow falling, its frozen breath. Seriously, I went out there to feel the cold and my breath froze and hit the ground. It was awesome!

    I was weaing shorts 3 days ago and it was too hot in my house and now I'm afraid my bells will freeze off. Can we rename this the "Mother Nature's been drinking again" thread?

    I was able to get it to work with 180* water from one of those instant-hot taps in about an 8 oz cup.Any amount over that just fell as water, but most of it vaporized. Worked better just a few minutes ago (1am) than it did earlier this afternoon, though.

    Currently -5 degrees. Many tauntauns died to bring us this information.



    We put them in the freezer for future tauntaun burgers.

    No one could talk the Bothans into going out in that weather. And I'm guessing tautaun burgers taste better.

    Smart thinking, Bill.

    Like a fool I told my sup to call me if they need help. I did inform her if I have to come in and schools are closed a wee bean will be under my desk.

    It's snowing like mad already and the wind is picking up. Bring on the storm, 'cause I ain't leaving the house. :D And I'm hoping this storm brings enough snow to warrant breaking out the snowblower.

    Alas, I had to drive in to work today. Worst driving conditions ever. Very slippery and I saw several people who's tires were just spinning in frustration.

    Yep, it was one of those snows that was bad, but not quite enough to shut the city down. Which means lots of frustrated drivers.

    Today, 9 News is saying that there is NO chance for rain. Let's see if they can get that forecast right.

    Amazingly, they did OK. So they can predict good weather, it's the bad stuff that they suck at. (And that we need the most).
