Flurries with a chance of Ice age.....

Well today was a rare oddity in CT and I was unable to enjoy it. For the first time in 2 weeks the temperature hit the high 40's low 50's, yet I spent the day serving customers. As soon as I get out I have an hour pool workout scheduled and then its off to CCSU for a study session/ paper writing plaooza, ( the last 8 pages of my ALS report...the hardest part is citing...and the first 3 of twelve on my mid east political analysis...damn it Israel and Palestine...just get along and play nice.) tonight forecasters are beginning their usual fear mongering about snow and cold. according to them the forecast looks like this:

Thursday: If you work until 5PM think about getting a hotel room as it is supposed to snow like the day after tomorrow, roads will be covered in up to half a foot of the white stuff and if you even dare try to go out without a sled team you will die a bloody gory death in your motor vehicle.

Friday: More White stuff and temperatures hitting the lower 40's causing some melt age which will refreeze and turn into lovely black in your car for a team of sled dogs and begin to burn furniture for warmth.

Saturday: Snow, ice, freezing rain.....Snow god angry at us sacrifice the youngest member of the household to the snow god so he will end his wrath.

Sunday: Ugh Snow, cold...perfect weather for hunting mammoth, or typing a 12 page history paper.

Monday-Rest of next week bitter cold single digits...Neanderthals making a up recipes for preparing mastodon.

ok I tried to enter an element of backward human evolution into this post...but it didn't work. If you want a story to help you feel like you can conquer the world read the Stephen Hawking post below. Other wise leave a comment a my cynical approach to New England meteorology

Sorry to hear that the weather man is just having way too much fun predicting the end of the world.

while this won't help you all that much right now, in the future...for citations pick up a copy of Endnote. It rocks. Makes citing this EASY. There may be a free similar type of version that your library has too.

The local news up here in MA is saying the same thing. It looks like this time it's at least part true. I thought we were supposed to be in the grips of global warming. What the fuck?!

PS Maybe next semester you shouldn't take so many writing intensive courses. Don't you have any GEs to get out of the way?

I'm at work today and will be 4wheeling it home in my daddy's truck ONLY AFTER we get at least 4+ inches of snow. I seem to enjoy high risk activities...such as driving from Hartford to Waterbury in what can amount to a blizzard.

Put that trainer to good use. Now that I think about it, that's what i'm going to do tonight.
