WTF? (By the way — zeta isn’t the last letter in the Greek alphabet.)

Be prepared

A picture from my neighborhood in December of last year (click for larger — edited to a thumbnail to fix the site layout in Internet Explorer):

You have GOT to be kidding me

Saturday, November 19th, 2005

On the other hand, it’s supposed to drop to the forties after Monday, so I can’t see this storm strengthening all that much. Hurricanes are real wimps around cold weather. But I thought we were just going to have a little rain. I didn’t realize it would be due to a tropical storm. Yays.

The course of true love may not always run true for humans, but look on the bright side: you could be a penguin.

Oops, I hear thunder. Time to unplug everything (I’m not risking another fried modem). Back later.
Update, after midnight: well, the storm was a dud. After some ominous rumbles and a slight sprinkle it just went away. But I ended up spending most of the rest of the day and evening reading. I had forgotten the […]
