#6094: That's a bit more than 5 inches

They say the snow will end around 11:45, and we already got more than the predicted amount. Whee!

Anyway, took me almost two hours to drive home, because no plows (Illinois is broke) and when I did get home, I paused only to take a leak and then I blew down the driveway.

Driveway will not stay clear, but it'll stay clear enough.

More snow predicted for Tuesday night. Whee!

"Keeping the world below 2°C of warming needs tech we don't have". Yeah. Like controlling the sun.

I remember when this was the scheme of the evil industrialist in Batman Returns. Christopher Walken shoved Michelle Pfeiffer out a window because she figured it out.

This is why the Nunes memo is so important.
If all this is not a scandal--then the following protocols are now considered permissible in American electoral practice and constitutional jurisprudence: An incumbent administration can freely use the FBI and the DOJ to favor one side in a presidential election, by buying its opposition research against the other candidate, using its own prestige to authenticate such a third-party oppositional dossier, and then using it to obtain court-ordered wiretaps on American citizens employed by a candidate's campaign--and do so by deliberately misleading the court about the origins and authors of the dossier that was used to obtain the warrants.
Because that, FBI delenda est.

Mrs. Fungus took even longer to get home than I did. The roads were horrible which isn't surprising considering how f-ing broke Illinois is.

So it's Monday night, and tomorrow is Tuesday; and after Tuesday comes Wednesday, my day off. I'm looking forward to it.

I want to do more work on the old computers, of course. I suppose the next step is to dig through everything in search of my Mac disks, in order to find a boot disk. Maybe if I were to find the Zip disk backup of the Mac drive? That would mean taking out the hard drive again and pulling the terminating resistors.... *sigh*

Believe me: people are noticing how Trump won, and attempting to emulate him. Step one is refusing to play your opponents' game, which this canditate seems to understand rather well. Jeanne Ives may be someone to keep an eye on.

They're also predicting snow for Friday. Welcome to winter, I guess.
