OK, we’re totally F#cked now, eh?

But of course…

So you think you have snow

Yes, I too am sick of the snow that we have gotten over the past month or so (and I understand that more of it is on its way). So when I first saw the image to the right, I figured that it was Photoshopped. Much to my surprise, it wasn’t. Yep, this is a real road in Japan, and yes, that is real snow.

Apparently, this region regularly gets 35 feet of snow. Here are some more photos.



Check out how they go about clearing the snow.

An ill wind

So, I know that weather-geeks like Walt (probably) spent much of the weekend glued to the weather channel watching Southern CT get slammed by a wicked-serious storm on Saturday. (My in-laws drove all the way up the East Coast from Florida with it.) Well, Having spent much of the day indoors (hoping that I wouldn’t ship water in my basement again), I missed quite a bit of it, but for reasons that pas understanding, we had to go out last night (after much of the high winds were over), but as we drove two towns over (in the dark), we did get to experience some of the aftermath of the event.

Well, we had to detour around a few fallen trees a few times to get where we were going (and then a few more times before we got back — at one point even calling in a 911 call to report a downed tree that had taken down a power line which was arcing and had started a small fire).

When we finally got home (to discover a dry basement), all was well (except that we had no land-line, internet, or cable; requiring me to fall asleep in front of a DVD, before getting up and going to bed). This morning I did venture out again to discover a few more fallen trees (this time in my own neighborhood). These trees included:

One in my back yard (that fell into the woods behind my house, thus causing no real damage or mess).



A second that had fallen across the street and was precariously leaning on the high-tension wire.


And a third that had fallen across a street leading to my house.


There were more, (much more), this is just what I was able to snap from my house.

Isn’t the weather fun?
