Yep I decided to sit this one out. Getting sand-blasted by 50mph winds tearing me to shreds, and sub-zero temps seemed to be a bad idea. Especially after the last time.
You'll remember that six inches of ice water topped by two inches of slush I had to march through a few weeks ago. Past my ankles in Emerald City semi-solid frosty wastes, and a face full of sleet.
Left me ill for two solid weeks.
Wandering in the deadly elements I've come to believe is a hobby of the very young. So no these ain't my snaps up there. I stole them from people on the internet.
Btw I hear we're getting hit again next week. Well I do prefer the winter to summer...actually I prefer fall. Well okay I like anything without heat, and humidity. However I 'am' giving second thought to all that ice water in my shoes.
For now it's below Zero f. for the east coast. Hey I did that ice thing. 'Took a glass of warm water poured it on my kitchen window ledge, and damn if it didn't turn to ice in seconds. Sort of like that Canadian trick of tossing a pot of water into the air, and have it come down as snow. (See the cool video below.)
It ain't that cold here, but that's a neat trick!
Speaking of the wind it's serious here. I thought I heard snowplows, but it turned out to be strong winds. Some of which pounded my side windows. I thought they were going to blow in, and suck me out. Would have made for a cool post if I lived through it.
Yes btw you're right. I'm reduced to posting about the weather. Such is the fate of the retired. 'Guess I'll have a glass of milk, and go to bed now. This as opposed to snorting up a meth cocaine cocktail, and go out clubbing, and looking for likely lads.
Oh the decadent demented depraved mad 1970's we shall never see their like again.
More's the Fucking Pity!
