WTF? The weather people are naming snowstorms now? Getting a mite big for their britches, doncha think??
Khan Brings Ice and Snow to South, Mid-Atlantic and Midwest
Winter Storm Khan brought a swath of snow from the Midwest to the Mid-Atlantic on Friday. Parts of the South, including southern Kentucky, eastern Tennessee, northern South Carolina and North Carolina have seen significant icing from the storm.
While snow and ice will continue to impact the Friday afternoon and evening commute from the Mid-Atlantic to North Carolina, we expect the storm to move out to sea by later in the evening. Dangerous travel conditions will persist through the overnight into Saturday morning for areas that have seen accumulations of ice, sleet and snow.
We got just about half an inch here. Big deal. But there is not a breath of air moving, and it’s mighty cold out, maybe 10 or 12 degrees. So the light coat of snow makes everything sparkle like diamonds under the lights. It’s beautiful, but it’s so cold I don’t even want to stand by the window for more than a couple seconds. BRRR.
The other day, when it wasn’t quite so almighty cold, we went outside and made some burgers on the gas grill. When I took the big old cover off the grill, I found the grill’s side tables covered in mouse droppings. Seems like some little fellow had made his way up underneath there, and had spent quite a bit of time licking up any remaining grease on the surfaces. I cleaned it all up, we cooked, and then I covered up the grill again when it was cold. But later on, I felt bad for the poor little mouse, so when my wife wasn’t looking I lifted up the end of the cover and on one of the side tables I put out a plastic lid with a huge glob of peanut butter, a big handful of oats, a tablespoon of brown sugar and a few celery sticks that had seen better days. Probably enough to feed him a week. Stay warm little fuzzball.
Mouse, him go-um thataway.
Feeding Mice, you are just a big softie you angry gun toting bowler you.
I want to see storms named after fine outstanding people such as: Saddam, Yasser, Mahmoud, and of course, MOHAMMED!
