Apparently, in the news, recently an uncle is accused for felony injury and second degree murder of his 11 year old neice. He let his neice and nephew attempt to walk 10 miles in the snow to their parents house after their car got stuck in the snow. The police had mentioned drugs. I say drugs had to be involved because I don’t believe anyone in their right mind would ever let their children walk 10 miles anywhere, let alone through the snow! I really am sorry for the mother and the family. I think perhaps I should stop there and not talk more about that, lest I lose control.
In other news, I’d like to point out that I do actually run a couple other websites, including jCrap, and hello! Food. I know the food site hasn’t been updating as much as it should, but honestly, I’m thinking of running a new format and switching the site over to WordPress for ease of use. Everyone seems to think that wp is a lot easier to use (CP) than ExpressionEngine, I have no idea why.
Ok so for the past few days, it’s been what seems to me like non-stop raining. But this is good, because now the snow is melting away and like normal, we are not stuck inside the house. Unfortunately, because of all the rain and all the melting snow, we are on flood watch. Go figure, we cannot win. Crazy.
In other news, it’s been real quiet around here, since I’m recuperating from this tube thingie sticking out of my belly, and Meesh is just relaxing from all the stress of taking care of me. I’m high maintenance you know! So nothing is really going on, not surprisingly.
However, I did manage to write a few articles over at jCrap, so if you’re interested in reading my stuff, then go on over there!
Last minute edit: I thought I’d add a poll to this post too.
Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
So what’s been going on lately? It wouldn’t seem like much is going on except for the massive snow that we’ve gotten. Honestly like I was saying before, it really figures that we would get all this snowfall (about 2 feet total) after I told my dad it never snows here. The roads are horrible, and there’s this median of snow in the middle of our road, so turning left out our driveway becomes an adventure!
As you can see from my awesome webcam picture, it’s not too bad as far as snow goes, but it’s horrible for this area! We rarely get snow. This is so rare it’s not even funny. I think I recall someone on the new saying, “I hate the snow, that’s why I moved to Seattle.” Indeed. It rarely snows around here.
In other news, for those of you who have forgotten that I have a food site, I’ve gone ahead and made a new post there. This one is about the Travel Channel show called Man vs. Food. It’s really a good show, and I’ve included a video about it. My short post is about the “Italian Stance“, which is basically the way to eat “the Chicago way”.
If that’s not enough, I’ve also posted a short story about the two-legged cat at jCrap. This one includes a video as well, and even though it’s in Japanese, all you really need to be able to do is view it. Very astonishing and heartbreaking.
So, what have you been doing to prepare for the holidays? I’ve done absolutely nothing. Nothing I say!
P.S. What movie is the title of this post from? hint: it’s out on DVD now!
Well for once, the weatherman was not lying when they said the snow will be coming down. Right now, we’re still getting snowed upon, and it looks like we’ve gotten about 3 to 4 inches so far. It doesn’t look like it’s gonna be stopping anytime soon either. It also looks like they’re closing some roads (not here) in the area. That’s some crazy driving. Hopefully DOT is really working hard, I’m sure they are, but oddly enough, our street (a very busy street) has hardly been plowed. Actually I might have heard a truck go by just recently.
But here’s a webcam picture of what it’s like on our street right now. Keep in mind that this road is very busy. In one given day, about 27,000 cars pass this road. That’s how busy it is.
I’ve heard this storm is supposed to continue until tonight, and I believe it ends sometime tomorrow morning. This is indeed crazy. I told my parents when they moved here that it never snows! Of course, I had to made a liar of! Thanks mother nature!
If I was in the mood to play in the snow, it would be great! And poor Meesh, she’s at work right now! She has to drive back in this horrible mess!
So we finally got our first snow this weekend. I know there were a few of our friends that were pretty happy to see that. I’d have to say that I’m not quite as excited. But that’s ok, because I’m not going out in it.
With the snow, of course comes the cold weather. This week I think we’re supposed to be breaking some records or something. I don’t know about you but I’m not too keen on breaking any records for temperatures. Especially when they’re on the cold side. I believe the high was supposed to be 31 today. Of course, we’ve already went higher than that so that’s ok. Maybe they were talking about record lows. Thank you but no thank you.
Well, because I can’t leave things well alone, I’ve been farting around with the sidebar widgets and eventually added the Poll module back in. As you can see, the current poll is pretty standard, asking if you prefer paper or plastic.
Other than that, nothing exciting is going on here. I’m slowly recovering from the surgery, and doing pretty well. I have to admit that the hydromorphone prescribed to me helped a lot. But now, I’m out.
So this week, my sister and I went up to Mt. Rainier. There was snow. It was insane. I would have never imagined walking in the snow in the middle of June.
Ok, perhaps some of you heard about the snowstorm that hit the western states from “Washington to Arizona”. Yeah, ok, sure, there was some snow for us here in Olympia, but it’s gone now. Sure, it snowed last night, but it also rained after that. What’s up with that? Where’s the snow for us in the South Sound?
Now, I’m not saying that I want to have my power taken out and for us to be freezing, but you know, I want to see some kind of snow! They said there would be about 3″ of snow. But nope. Not even a layer of snow. Just rain. Ugh.
Snow already, that is all.
