AlGore.... Paging AlGore..... you have a butt whooping waiting for you....


Two feet of snow this past weekend... and another foot and a half tonight into tomorrow.

Damn.

The schools will start yanking their kids back before lunch today, and by days end we will just have a handful left. Mostly farm boys who drive trucks, and think two feet of snow is a new toy to play with.

Tonight I'll stack firewood on the porch, and get a pinpoint location on the neighbors pony in case food runs low. Oh, and I'll stage shovels for the grand day of ^%$#@#$ snow clearing that begins in the morning.

If this plays out like the weather guesser's are saying, look for another snowpocalypse photo-blog here tomorrow sometime.

SNOW WILL DEVELOP ACROSS THE CENTRAL SECTIONS OF PENNSYLVANIA
AROUND MIDDAY AND INCREASE IN INTENSITY AND COVERAGE THROUGH THE
EVENING AND OVERNIGHT PERIOD. SNOW MAY BE HEAVY AT TIMES
OVERNIGHT THROUGH WEDNESDAY BEFORE TAPERING TO FLURRIES LATE IN
THE DAY. SNOWFALL RATES COULD APPROACH ONE INCH PER HOUR
OVERNIGHT AND EARLY WEDNESDAY FOR PORTIONS OF THE SUSQUEHANNA
RIVER VALLEY.

TOTAL SNOWFALL ACCUMULATIONS ARE EXPECTED TO AVERAGE BETWEEN 8 AND
12 INCHES OVER THE CENTRAL MOUNTAINS. HIGHER TOTALS OF A FOOT OR
MORE EXPECTED ALONG AND SOUTHEAST OF I-81...INCLUDING
HARRISBURG...YORK AND LANCASTER.

Al Gump & the Fried Earth Club would just hypocritize further by saying "the snow and cold is being caused by globalist warming"...I mean "global warming."
I better get off this topic, it's not good for my blood pressure.

Woo-Hoo!! Snow coming my way this time! I'm happy because my office is closed tomorrow (I close it!) and someone else plows my driveway!!

Sparrow, we woke this morning to a lovely thick carpet of snow... about six inches. No school today, no work but what we choose.... it's going to be a pretty nice day!

Well... aside from the ten inches more we are supposed to get today, along with the 30-40 mph winds and blizzard conditions.

I figure 'shoveling' will involve tossing the snow straight up and letting it become Maryland's problem.
