    Why is it that every time it snows on the east coast, it makes national news? Having spent most of my life in Montana, eastern Washington and Utah, it’s kind of a non-issue when it snows - you get up early, shovel and go to work. However, every time it snows out East, it’s the end of the world…? I would understand if we were talking Florida or Arizona, but in the northeast I’d think they would be used to snow….

    It snows quite often here. This will be the 4th "snow event" as they have taken to calling them lately, with measurable accumulation. I think the 8th overall since Winter officially started.

    The difference is, and this is a friend from Minnesota telling me this, they get small storms dumping a few inches at a time but, the snow doesn't go away there until spring. So 3 or 4 snow falls with 3-4 inches adds up to a foot and a half but it came in small increments. It just doesn't go away between storms.

    But here, when it snows like this, it's essentially a tropical storm that's getting pushed up the coast by a cold front hovering over a place like Montana or Minnesota which is making it snow, not rain. So a typical tropical storm here will dump 2-3 inches of water on us in one shot. The average conversion is 8-10 inches of snow per every inch of rain. So a storm that would normally dump 2.5-3 inches of rain turns into a storm that buries the Northeast in 20-30 inches of snow overnight. That's not something you can easily shovel out of and go to work in the morning. Granted, we get the majority of the area back up and running within 24 hours after the snow stops and that's an impressive feat for how monumental of a task it is but it's still debilitating and affects major economic areas of the country.

    That said, though, I'm with you on why is it always a "SNOWPOCALYPSE" when it's typical Northeast winter weather here. It can be really dangerous but with how fast everything moves here on any given day, take some pleasure in the fact that getting buried under a couple feet of idiot dust forces it to slow down for a bit.

    Here, not to beat a dead horse or anything but I just saw this article pop up on Facebook about why the storms in the Northeast get to be so news-worthy:

    https://www.livescience.com/bomb-cyclone-blizzards-northeast?fbclid=IwAR2hXBlaHzyCVX6CAXC8IbnJQD_sxrvaYDBvy6oIZrkwHVYOZaObmzposno&utm_campaign=socialflow

    Currently, a gale warning was just issued for my area with potential gusts at the coast with hurricane force winds. Looks like the worst of the winds are going to be hitting Rhode Island and Massachusetts.

    It's been a year since we last visited this thread so I figured I'd necro it because why the frick not?

    Feelin' the hate lately on something specific lately.

    There is no 'e' in Camaro you thundering, mouth breathing morons.

    Also, if you are pondering something you are WONDERING about it. If you are WANDERING about something you are meandering aimlessly through life in your small-minded stupor and honestly used WANDERING in a grammatically dubious fashion. If you are meandering aimlessly through something like, Iunno, The Hundred Acre Wood then you are, in fact WANDERING through the woods, not WONDERING. I'm not even sure how you could actually be WONDERING about anything in the woods, though, since you lack the cranial horsepower needed to determine the difference between WANDERING and WONDERING which, in all fairness, is a step above the ability to chew gum and not choke on it.

    Additionally, if this is too much for you to handle or stings a bit too close to home for you, maybe you should have a seat on your BUMPER and take long hard look at the life choices you have made because a BUMBER is not a thing.

    Thank you for coming to my TED Talk. Try not to drool on yourself on the way out the door.

    Ya know, I keep hearing people say that folks aged faster prior to, like, the 1980's and I keep thinking that it's just artifacts of stuff like the quality of the film used to take pictures and stuff or just the dated hair and clothing styles but...

    ...in that video Del Shannon is only like 28 years old.

    He looks like he's 45 and doing the music gig on the side to hide from the wife and kids.

    I hate it when people actually think that they can pay you in weed in Oregon. If you pay for it you are an idiot. It's legal to grow for personal consumption and it's a weed you idiot. You don't need a degree in horticulture to grow it. It makes you wander about people sometimes.

    So there's this brewery nearby, built on an old farm, and they renovated farm house a bit. Pretty popular place, but I've never had a beer there that didn't sour my stomach within a couple of hours. I guess I'm not that kind of hipster.

    Anyway, they have live entertainment sometimes. I don't know who they've got over there today, but whoever it is, they're intrusively penetrating my walls. Before I realized what it was, I turned down the music a couple of times, thinking I was hearing an injured farm animal wailing in distress. If only the wind would shift...

    Our farmer-neighbors are hosting a wedding today, and we're getting somewhat the same thing. The party must've started. :)
    We feel bad for them -- the weather today is terrible. Fortunately, they do have a tent, but it's windy, too. Not optimal. Liquor should help, though. B)

    playing now: Y-M-C-A
    The front's gone through, we had a bit of a sunset, the air's cooled off, and the party's on! :) (and our house is opened up to listen in).
    Given that we had three good friends die in the past week (two cancers and one old age), a little merriment, even someone else's, is kind of nice on a Saturday night.

    What I hate.....?

    Receiving news from a very good friend of yours that his stereo system is down and probably will be for a while. Poor fella has to crate up his amp, ship it off 1/2 way across the US, wait for it to be repaired and wait yet again for the unit to be shipped back.

    The whole time, without tunes on his big rig.

    I have been there, done that and I can tell you that it absolutely s***ks. Yeah, I know, part of the hobby and all but it's still something I hate to hear.
