The real cause (if there is any we will ever really know) of the bizarre weather of late doesn't really matter, does it?

In the past 8 weeks I have felt like Sibyl. I have been in Boston for a few days and almost a week here and there in Raleigh. Just as I got back here, I'd be back in Raleigh for a day or three, and even a daytrip to Savannah! This is wreaking havoc with my Seasonal Affect Disorder. I'm no longer sure about just when I should be depressed anymore.

Today I am in Moosonee. The ambient temperature is -6F and the wind child is -23F. Mr. Watson, who just turned 16, is not going to be happy, but he ain't goin' nowhere today but his yard.

Richard (Socketman) will laugh at me for being a woos, but, really? People live like this for months at a time? At a certain temperature, he probably stays home, because it's too cold for electricity to function.

Edit: No, I really mean it. I had to wait for the sun to be up for 3 hours this morning before the cones in my M100's would move. Three-season porch, my ass. They never DID tell which 3 seasons. It's cowald!

Always call the place you live a house. When you're old, everyone else will call it a home.

Too funny Bob, this is the mildest winter we have had in the 20 yrs I have been here. We have not had anything lower than -20 back in December for a few days but mostly -5 its been really weird. Crank the heat up and make a hot toddy , this weather isn't for the weak smile

Santa Anas were blowing down here. 80 , bright sun, intense blue skies. Took out the S2000, changed diff fluid, MT fluid brake fluid and oil. Put in oversized throttle body and K&N filter. Cruised the ca yon, hit 9,000 rpm a few times. Couldn't hear the stereo. Bummer.

I know. Global cooling. No, wait, global warming. No wait, Climate change. It gets warmer, then colder ... the sky is falling. Oh noes.

I miss reasonable statements.


The only reasonable argument for owning a gun is to protect yourself from the police.

Lysenko. Settled science.
I think you meant His name rather than his name.

I've only had to wear winter boots a few times this winter.

I'm sure the worst is yet to come.

No snow, above zero all week. Crazy.

We were -10 F Saturday Night and we were 50 F on Monday. Good old New England.

Dear Canada,
thank you for letting us borrow the very cold air but we are finished with it, can you take it back please?
