Yep. It's officially cold outside

It's cold. If I'm cold, it's officially cold. I don't mind cold weather and seldom bother with a real coat. I generally just put on a jacket, if that.

But at least we got a nice little snow last night. Looks pretty. It's not a problem snow, it's a light snow. Light as in not wet. Wet snow is less fun. Unless. Unless you're making snowmen and snowballs. Wet snow is very good for those things.

For those of you, and you know who you are, who hate snow, please look at this picture below and think about how lucky you are here in the land of not-much-snow.

Imagine opening your door and seeing this! That snow.

Life is so short. While you are hoping for spring to come, don't forget to enjoy this day.

January is half over.

Global warming?

I definitely believe in global warming. I don't see how it can be denied.

There will be winners and losers in global warming, and right here in PA we seem to be among the losers. We used to get honest-to-goodness snow. Big, nice snows. And yet. Some didn't like snow*.

I wonder if they love what has replaced the snow? The ice storms. We used to go years and years and years without an ice storm. Now we get them instead of snow. You can drive in snow. You can walk in snow. But driving and walking in even a thin layer of ice is dangerous.

Not that I'm complainin' of course. I never bitch. Well, maybe a little.

*I forgive all those who don't like snow. I know that they like ice even less. And for all who love Spring (and who doesn't?) as of today, it's 72 days away. Do easy time. Try to enjoy winter. The ice is beautiful on the trees after all.

Happy 2009 to you all!

This here is a unique rabbit. Don't you agree? Do you know how to catch a unique rabbit?

Unique up on it.

How Do You Catch a Tame Rabbit?

Tame Way.

Course no telling what can go wrong with this plan.

That cat. Or was it the rabbit's fault?

Don't forget to say Rabbit Rabbit so you'll have good luck in January!

*Yeah, yeah, I'm posting early. I may fall asleep before midnight. It's been known to happen.
