Out of the Blue

The snow that accumulated from the after-Christmas blizzard in these parts is still all over the place, and we have another snowstorm predicted for today. This is causing more concern than usual since the reaction to the last blizzard in New York City was inadequate at best, an unusual situation that seems to have its roots in some sort of scandal. This may end up derailing my plans for one of my rare forays out into the world, as I was going to go carousing with my buddies tonight. I'll have to see how this all plays out, but I may end up with another chance to brew up some more chili to fight the chilliness.

Will they PLEASE film the fucking Ian McKellen scenes before he kicks the bucket????? He's fucking 71, we're on borrowed time here!


I hear Weta has invented an apparatus that will move his body, eyes and frame around the set as a back up. Ted Williams (the Golden voice of radio) has been approched to do his voice.

Here in NJ we still had snow leftover from the big snow storm the other week, but some rain got rid of a lot of it.

Today we're getting some steady snow, but they're only predicting an additional 4" today.


I'm debating whether I should go home early today. 4" isn't very much, but my town doesn't like to plow my street and some of the roads I need to take are often less than ideal.

Plus I have a steep driveway so I'd like to get home while there's still light/warmth out to shovel enough to be able to get up that thing.

Not to mention I'd like to avoid the idiots on the roads that speed off everywhere during rush hour.
