Meteorologists predict that the storm will bury snowfall records across the Midwest. In the East, it’s expected to deliver ice storms that could cause $1 billion in damage.

Yes, global warming = more dramatic winter weather! It's a wild, wild world. And exciting! SNOWPOCALYPSE FOR ALL!


Snow Miser!

The University of Kansas is closed tomorrow. I'm caught up with grading. Snow is drifting up around the house. And I'm fully stocked with movies, music, games, and booze. This is the PERFECT time for a party, but no one could make it over here safely.
