May have been the -10 temps, not sure what the deal was. Shoveled, then again this morning. Didn't even bother trying the blower again.

Now that I'm a homeowner, I finally get why people have kids. Mowing, vacuuming, and shoveling snow.

Thanks Happy. I live in upstate NY so high 50s/low 60s and rain is still better then low teens and snow.

Do you know anything about the company called Free Tours by foot? We were thinking of doing a couple of tours while we're down there.

Last year at this time we had over a foot of snow. This year (season) we got our first snowfall on Sunday, about 2 inches at best. Hopefully we will not get the 100 inches + that we did last year. Very cold here though, in the single digits.

I saw this on FB and decided to print it and post it in my office:

"According to astronomy,
when you wish upon a star,
you're actually a few million years late.

That star is dead.

Just like your dreams."


That makes me smile.

as an aside, Walden has worked the night shift ever since and hasn't been seen in the light of day...but that is purely a coincidence, i'm sure

Thanks for the info. I'll make sure I bring lots of garlic with me to keep Lestat and his vampire buddies away.

Day 2 and car still frozen the heat did not work. Looked online and the support forums are filled with posts from other people with the same car that will not start in the cold. I guess it is a known thing.

I know I'm not an expert being from Southern California, but a snowblower that doesn't work when it's cold? crazy smirk

Why is it so hard to find a digit copy (or any copy, for that matter) of the song "Puberty Love" from Attack of the Killer Tomatoes???

Thx, ed. I have seen it on there. But I'm looking to the full song. I've heard it exists.

I had a bloody nose last night which I think is in part due to this cold, dry weather. I was thinking of 'cleaning some house' if you know what I mean but I'm sure that will just lead to another bloody nose.

Can't??

I beg to differ. Shouldn't, maybe. But you absolutely can!
