Out of the Blue

Well we sure did get socked by that winter storm around here, with most of it coming overnight, as it looks like about a foot of snow is pilled up out there waiting for me and my shovel. As unappealing as this sounds in general, it's actually going to be worse than that, because when slogging out to tend to the birdfeeder I got to experience the 6F temperature that accompanies this, or -17F (-27C) if you count the wind chill. This was enough to freeze my hands to the metal on the feeder, and the snow might as well be a topical anesthetic the way contact with it makes your skin instantly go numb. And with the Super Bowl planned for this area exactly 30 days from today, one really does start to wonder what it will be like if the weather is like this for the big game. Oh, speaking of which, I found a free playoff bracket tracker, and I think I have properly set up an NFL playoff pool, so if you are interested in another chance to crush me with your football knowledge, you can participate via this page.

why is everyone tripping about earthquakes? the vast majority of them are no big deal. hell, i don't even get out of bed for anything less than a 6. below that it's just a fun ride and i actually enjoy riding them out.

i'm on bobbob's train with this one; lived in socal for over 20 years, wouldn't want to live anywhere else. a huge part of it is the calling of the sea, but also the LALA Land craziness of it all. i dig it =D

I've been SF for a few and one of the bigger one and it's scary as hell. And even for the worst ones that hit they'll be peanuts compared to the big one. Nat Geo says big one guarenteed by 2037!!! At which point Arizona and Nevada will be beachfront property anyway - hell, just ask Lex Luthor about it!

And then there's crime, pollution, traffic, et al. I'm definitely in the 'it's a nice place to visit but I wouldn't want to live there' crowd.
