Snow makes people crazy


Snow makes people crazy, and I have proof:


1) The Shining. Man that movie is scary. Yes, I realize the book, blah, blah, blah. But Stanley Kubrik's stark portrayal of isolation...Screw that man, those little girls, and Jack, and being stranded in the snow, is freaking wrong. Also note, when it snows like this, all copies of the Shining are rented at your local movie store.


2) The Donner Party. They resorted to cannablism, as a last resort.
Ok, that's all I have, but it's true! Snow is evil.
...WINTER STORM WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 10 PM EST THIS EVENING...
A WINTER STORM WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 10 PM EST THIS EVENING.
LAKE EFFECT SNOW SHOWERS WILL INCREASE IN COVERAGE AND INTENSITY BY AFTERNOON AND CONTINUE INTO THE EARLY EVENING. ADDITIONAL SNOW ACCUMULATIONS OF 2 TO 4 INCHES ARE EXPECTED. WEST WINDS WILL GUST TO 30 MPH AT TIMES RESULTING IN WIDESPREAD BLOW AND DRIFTING SNOW.
WIND CHILLS OF 10 TO 20 BELOW ZERO TODAY WILL LOWER TO 20 TO 30 BELOW TONIGHT. THIS MAY RESULT IN FROST BITE AND LEAD TO HYPOTHERMIA IF PRECAUTIONS ARE NOT TAKEN. IF YOU MUST VENTURE OUTDOORS...MAKE SURE YOU WEAR A HAT AND GLOVES.
CONDITIONS CAN DETERIORATE RAPIDLY IN WINTER WEATHER SITUATIONS... SLOW DOWN AND ALLOW EXTRA TIME WHEN TRAVELING. PRACTICE YOUR WINTER SAFETY RULES. KEEP AN EXTRA FLASHLIGHT... FOOD...AND WATER IN YOUR CAR IN CASE OF EMERGENCY.

It turns out I'm allergic to angora. Would you like a pretty angora/wool/nylon blend? I got two skeins, which should be enough for a pair of Fetching fingerless mitts from Knitty. It's a tan, blue grey, brown, and dusty green. That should make you feel better--free angora yarn! :-)
