It's the 19th of March. And it's not just snowing, but the stuff is PILING down. Even now, about half an hour after I took this little 5-second video, the flakes are still dumping out of the sky.

Tomorrow is Spring, right?


I don't expect it'll stick around long, but... *sigh*

(Just having a little fun while testing out some video-making software. My first time using titles and sound!)

EDIT And why not: More fun stuffs:



Only 58%? Let's be optimistic here and assume that the majority of the other 42% sit in the "Meh, whatever," camp rather than the "OPPRESS EVERYONE WHO ISN'T EXACTLY LIKE ME!" camp.

And finally, one more thing before I go back to work: The book I'm currently reading is Alif the Unseen by G. Willow Wilson, and OMG IT IS FANTASTIC YOU GUYS. Go find it and read it now!

Back in....1986, I think it was, Dodge City got hit with a blazing lizard that brought in 3 feet of snow-on the first day of spring. Nothing moved for nearly a week.

Oddly enough, the sun is shining away here, and it's 53 degrees, according to the internet. So it shouldn't last too long!

Blazing Lizard is possibly the best word combo I'm going to see today.

Your mini vid is FUNNY!!!

I don't know a whole bunch of folks who think gays shouldn't marry, but I live in Portland. Did you hear about Michelle Shocked? A local Portland venue cancelled her show because of the asinine comments she made in San Fransisco.

Anyhoosie. I'm going to go and enjoy the flowers on my cherry tree...YOU can go make a snow-person.
:P

Wow, I did not know that singer and now I'm really glad for that.

Enjoy your lovely weather :-p

Oh, sure, rub it in.

Today's it's sunny and lovely... and we're expecting another inch or three of snow tonight.
