#6513: Okay, panic! GLOBAL WARMING IS HERE

Projected high temperature for Wednesday: minus fourteen.

That's the expected HIGH temperature! Look at this shit! LOOK AT IT:

Holy crap, stay home. -14° F is bad enough. -24--that worries me. I'm not particularly bothered by snow but arctic cold like that is bad news.

It snowed Saturday, and it snowed again Sunday, starting about 11:30 PM; it proceeded to snow all night and into the morning. As planned, I got up when my wife did and spent about twenty minutes with the little snowblower, clearing the driveway and cleaning off her car.

The snow was almost too much for the little snowblower to handle. The temperature is a bit above freezing so it's packing, and it was a very fine-grained snow, so it was pretty dense. And with Sunday's snow there was about six inches or so of the stuff. The plow drift at the bottom of the driveway was particularly difficult.

Still easier than shoveling, though.

Overheard in the bunker: "Twigs, don't lick my mouse!"

Cat gets lonely. Cat gets in my lap. Cat then sits on my desk. Cat tries to explore work computer and is told "No." Cat then tries to get at it from another angle, sniffs mouse, starts to lick mouse.

Cat loses interest and leaves. WTF.
