The Malibu Express is now upon Barry and the NYC guys. Beantown's next, better charge up the ipod.

Does the leading edge resemble the devil's face or is it just me?!

Charlie Snow,the ultimate great bat no field players in major league history. He played one career game for Brooklyn in 1874,coming in late in a blowout to Boston. A career 1.000 hitter,he also made 3 errors for a career .000 fielding %

The score of that game was 29-0 Boston and do you know why they lost? Because he was from Lowell Mass and he went to play for a NY team! He was such an outcast from there on out that he lived his life away for another 55 years in Brooklyn,never allowed back into Massachusetts again to atone for his sin.


and of course I tied everything in to make it a vintage post but on topic,C.Snow in Brooklyn,Barry is in Brooklyn(As is Charles Snow),and just like Charles Snow,Mass. doesn't want this snow either. As I type here from NJ just out of range of the snows projected path

It's snowing cats and dogs right now, if such a thing is possible. It looks beautiful as I look out my window, but in a few hours it will be a mess.

snow

Its not really even snow out there. Its little particles of frozen ice. It doesn't even stick together, and break apart as if you were squeezing a handful of sand. Heavy as hell too.

Thank goodness I worked out of home.

My condolances to all of you people that still have travel schedules this year (especially anything going in and out of Chicago)... I finished my traveling for the year on Thursday... I don't want to see another airport or hotel room for the rest of this year...

Barry, what were the odds you were planning on exiting your apartment anyway -- at least until tomorrow morning for bagels? happy.gif

It's a mess up here in Ontario. We're expected to have about two-two and a half feet by the end of tomorrow. I was out all day Christmas shopping, and it was a terribly slow go.

Freezing for past several days and about three inches on the ground in Seattle-- which is very unusual. Still, it's hovers around 30 degrees during the day, so it's comfortable enough walking around. I was told Seattle has one snow plow for a city of 500,000+ (says how much show ordinarily get), and the city has lots of hills, so there are driving and public transportation issues. People here know they are winter weenies and don't know how to deal with snow and cold. When it was 23 (ooh, aah) the local weatherman flashed the temperature in North Dakota (20 below or whatever) to show us that we're winter wimps.

But don't worry about me, I have a mush dog. ("I wouldn't even eat mush," he says)

Seattle Mess

December 19 2008, 3:42 PM 

Seattle is really bad... and to make it worse, no mail or UPS deliveries sad.gif Just too many hills, and not enough plows, no salt, no sand, no roadside assistance or accomodations of any kind.

I had to walk away from my car, and hoof it 4 miles through the ice just to get home. The next storm (Sunday) is supposed to dump even heavier, and carry strong winds with likely power outages. Lots of "fun" for a San Diego transplant!

I moved to Seattle from Wisconsin (where winter lasts more than five days), and, in defense of the wimps in Seattle, it is very hilly (which would cause problems anywhere when iced) and gets some good wind storms. When my above pictured dog was a puppy, he wasn't allowed on the second floor deck during a windy spell-- fear he'd blow off. He's pictured as an adult wearing a ferret collar, as cat collars were too big.

Aloha from Paradise

Currently 77 degrees in Honolulu but more like 75 with the windchill factor.

OK, OK. The foregoing is BS. The weather in Hawaii lately has sucked big-time. Last week we were hit by wind and rain storms, up to 14" of rain in some parts of Honolulu, attendant flooding, cars floating away, federal disaster area, heckuva job Brownie, all that fun stuff. Meanwhile the volcanoes over by Frank Ward's house on the Big Island have been spewing nasty mega-vog that has covered Oahu with an end-of-the-world gloom. Can't see, can't breathe, suicide hot-lines are jammed, and that's just the tourists. But at least we don't have to shovel it. Stay warm, guys.

Shoveling ice is fun! I just got done shoveling my sidewalk and steps, along with those of my neighbor. I live about an hour south of Naperville, and we got some snow, then some ice, then some rain, then some more ice, and then it all froze together. This time next week it will probably be in the mid 40's - low 50's. I love IL weather!

I just wanted to let you know that as I was breakfasting on fresh oranges from the tree in my yard I was thinking of you...

the snow looks pretty when you look out a window from a warm house and it is kind of nice to have around at christmas time.
