WHITE OUT
The snow appears to be blowing in all directions at once. It's light out with that sort of diffused whiteness everywhere like it's all just reflection or smoke and mirrors. If you went outside, the snow would snicker with glee and swoop inside your coat sleeves and under your collar and between the buttons of your coat, in effect telling you "We win! we win!" You'd have to pound it hard and repeatedly with a shovel to make it calm down and get the hell out of your way. If you went outside, it would harry you, blowing in your face no matter which way you turned. It would team up with the wind to pull your hat off. It wants you inside where it can keep an eye on you.

Today is starting out nice and slow and that's just fine with me. Anders fell asleep on the couch late last night and was up before me, leading me to believe he never came to bed. This happens often and is a bit aggravating. Not the part where he's up before me, but the part where he doesn't come to bed before I'm asleep. He's a TV addict, it must be said. Well, it's only fair, since I'm a computer addict. We're co-dependent with our screens.

The amount of spam we receive has increased alarmingly. It's not just the virus, it's everything. Most of them are either full of gibberish or everything is misspelled or just random words. Yesterday I got a spam mail titled "Improve Your Hair" but sadly it was just another advertisement for Viagra and other "sexual health stimulators." I fail to see the connection, and I'm a bit bummed as my hair could always stand some improving. I really need to get the new email addresses up and working...add that to my to-do list, will ya Doris?

It's been snowing like hell up here since about 10 p.m. last night. I think we've gotten at least another 8-10 cm and more to come. Then it's supposed to get warm on Monday or Tuesday and then freeze again and start snowing on Wednesday. Bah!

Re:

It's still snowing here, too, but it's barely see-able. It's almost like snow-rain. I had heard it was going to warm up this weekend, but seems the weather predictors were wrong for now.

ozswede to the rescue!

Perhaps you need to Torture a Spammer. Yes, I know, I'm a violent woman, but it is immensely satisfying if somewhat pointless. Almost as good as sending them a Virtual Voodoo Doll (from someone else's email address of course).

The weather is awful here today. Just above zero, snowing, sleeting, raining horizontally and big winds. What happened to the friendly puffy powdery snow of yesterday. And just when I was going to sweet talk L-G into making snow angels.

Take the Weather With You

I decided people who live in areas of bad weather are the ones who talk about it all the time. It's rained, like 2 days out of 6 this week. It's horrible. (please excuse the sarcasm, those of you still living like eskimos) I realize now why I moved south. Although, we did have a really bad storm in the middle of the night the other night. Caesar was of course, scared and kept me up for the whole thing. In Florida, you get used to lightening, kind of; and thunder, sort of; but this was really intense. There was no rumbling thunder or lightening and count. It was like a bomb was dropped.

As for email, the one I hate the most is the assholes that pretend that they are Earthlink and try to get your information from you. Someone should come up with something, like a worm we could send back to them because they are obvious criminals. And if there is one thing worse than a criminal, it's an obvious one.
