The National Weather Service called this weeks snowstorm "epic". We received the most snow from one storm in something like 40 years. School was closed for 2-1/2 days. Luckily, I only had to be stuck at home for one day. It's been cold too. It was -12 degrees F on my morning drive to work yesterday, and -10 degrees F today. Is talking about the weather a sign of old age?

I don't like winter. I do, however, like the first couple snow falls, especially when the sun comes out. Winter light is just fantastic.

This week our congress has passed regulations giving the government control of wall street and the banks. That should give you warm fuzzies. The "pay czar" has also decided to limit bank execs pay to $500,000/year. Yes, that's right. Someone we didn't vote for (he was "appointed by Obama) is deciding how much banks can pay their execs. Bad idea. Did you vote for any of this shit? I didn't think so. Neither did I. Heil Obama.

Christmas is in two weeks. Lots to do.

I took Madeline to see Santa today. Afterwards she told me he was the real Santa, not a fake. She couldn't take her eyes off of him. What a fun, magical time of year.

Paper Chain

I know I'm not telling you something you don't already know, but I have to say it again. Hormones do crazy things to females. Estrogen and rational thought are linked somehow. I think tear ducts are tied together in there too.

What's the difference between an enzyme and a hormone? You can't hear an enzyme.

23 days til Christmas.

New Moon

I'm taking the girls to see New Moon today. Makes me sound gay, I know, but I'm looking forward to seeing it. I listened to all the books. They're pretty good if you can get past the girly romantic stuff. Who doesn't like werewolf and vampire movies?

We've had several beautiful foggy mornings this week, as you can see.
This Thursday is Thanksgiving. Two day work week for me, yay! Hope you have a great Thanksgiving day and are surrounded by people you love.

(Addendum - We saw New Moon today. It was stupid & the acting was horrible. The wolves were cool, but that's it. Don't waste your money. The book (& your imagination) are a thousand times better. I guess that's how it always is though.)
(Addendum #2 - Watched the new Star Trek movie tonight too. It was awesome. I'm going to have to watch it again.)

Spent most of the day yesterday cleaning up the garage, to make room for Angie's car and the camper before the snow flies. There's something peaceful about hanging out in a garage. More so when it's tidy.

Let Down

I don't want to bitch, so I won't say anything. Well, the weather's nice anyway.
