what, again???

Winter Storm Hercules Brings The Snow

Looks like we’re in for it. Snow started an hour and a half ahead of predicted schedule, and is falling at about 1/2” per hour. Fine stuff; it’s friggin’ cold outside.

So ‘round and ‘round we go, when will it stop, nobody knows. Prediction is for around 7am after dusting us with about 6"-8" of the white stuff.

I am prepared. I zipped off to the store this afternoon and got peppers and onions and cilantro and avacados and chips and tortillas and chicken and burritos and refries. So we’ll start by turning the end of the holiday roast beef into fajitas and quesadillas, and then Mex it up after that as much as we feel like.

I also picked up a case of Sam Adam’s Winter Lager, which is so good I’m starting to think of it as dog beer. No, not beer to feed your dog. But you know how a dog eats, right? Food! Glump. Gone! And that’s how these beers are. Yum, glug, empty!! So a 6 just wasn’t gonna work for the two of us.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

Middle of the night update: 1:52am. Yup, still snowing. Still snowing hard. Fine, fine stuff. Maybe 4” total? Hard to tell. It’s got to be powder because it’s so cold. So cold: right now it’s 11°F. Which makes it the coldest moment of this year. And probably of last year as well. Unfortunately, according to the Weather Channel, this might just be the high temp of the day. It’s supposed to keep right on snowing into mid-morning, while the mercury plummets. Down to the single digits, bottoming out at 0 around dawn tomorrow. Then it looks like we’re in for a wobbly week, high 30s one day, single digits the next and a balmy 41 by next Saturday.

But for now it’s going to be Horry Clap Cold, so we’ll just sit right here in our little nest. I feel a bit sorry for the animals out in this, especially the deer. Shame they don’t have dens, nests, or even burrows to get away from the weather. What do they do? I’d think about digging into a leaf pile somewhere in the woods, or getting under some seriously thick and large hedges. OTOH, they’re covered in thick hard fur so maybe they don’t even feel it.

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.
