36 or 37 years, who cares it still sucks

I am still sick. Much better, thanks, but still a hacking chestful of mucus. Could be worse; I still ain’t dead. Actually, if it weren’t for trying to breathe, I’d be just fine. Or trying to hear; the moment the Prednisone presecription wore off, I lost my hearing. Most of it anyway. Gee, swell.

I think I’ll go back to the doctor and glare at him until he gives me another batch of medicine.

So to make things more wonderful, it’s snowing again. Snowing pretty well actually. It’s been coming down all day, and I guess by now we’ve had at least 2” of the crap. Yee ha. In theory, it’s going to warm up a bit for tomorrow ... all the way up to sub-freezing ... then drop down to the 1s and 2s again and hit us with another storm system on Tuesday.

Today is the 36th anniversary of the historic Ohio Blizzard of ‘78, which dropped record setting amounts of snow while bringing hurricane force winds. A few days later a massive snow-i-cane slammed the New England coast and brought the world there to a halt for more than a week.

The winter of 1976-1977 may have been a touch colder in the NY Metro area I grew up in, ( I recall ice skating on the local pond the week after Halloween ), but 1977-78 brought us more snow, more ice, more drifts ... more BRRRR ... than even the fabled winter of 1959-60 (when cars needed to put flags on their antennas so see each other at intersections because there was just so damned much snow on the ground). 

Either way, both years were terrible, long, brutal winters. And both were indicative of Global Cooling, because We’re All Gonna Die and it’s All America’s Fault. Right. The new Ice Age.

Winter this year has generated MORE SNOW so far in the Ohio area than either of those historic seasons. The cold days got here earlier, have been colder, and have brought more snow to many areas.

The latest reports tell us how the Arctic Vortex is going to stay with us for some time, bringing freezing rotten weather all the way to Alabama and Florida, and keeping us on ice for weeks more.

And this time around, it’s all the fault of Global Warming, because We’re All Gonna Die and it’s All America’s Fault. Right. The new Tropical Age.

I’m sick of it, and I’m sick of being sick.

And now folks are getting all worried about the Superbowl, set to be played in Giants Stadium (aka MetLife stadium) here in New Jersey next week? Dummies ... this is why they built the Astrodome. Hey stupid: it’s winter. Go somewhere warm ya daft scroobie!

Besides, right now I’m all pissed off at the Superbowl people; there won’t be any parking lot parties going on at all, everyone is going to have to take a bus to get to the game (which will call a monstrous screw-up, guaranteed), and no even NOT under the official profit-making thumb of the NFL will be allowed to say Super-anything. And there won’t be any parties anywhere near the game itself. Certainly not in the parking lot. Because. Terrorist Security. And Money. Probably mostly money.

I’m about fed up with all of this crap, from one end to the other.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
