      With all due respect and I mean this in the friendliest way possible, but eat my shorts man! I just got done with a run from Seattle to Minneapolis and I woke up in Montana one morning to a temperature of -10F.

      I find it difficult to find the words to express just how thoroughly sick of winter I am at this point.Report

      It’s not so bad. Sometimes when it’s in the 50s we where goose down wraps, head to toe, like mobile insulated tacos, and just get on with our day. Other times when it’s in the 50s we stay inside cuz it’s really effing cold.Report

    This is why I’m in favor of global warming and sea level rise. The eastern halves of va,and md will submerge and I’ll finally get some ocean front property. 🙂Report

    Snow in late February. I know intellectually that there are places in the Northern hemisphere where that doesn’t happen, or at least is unusual enough to remark on. But from direct experience, it’s hard to really believe in. A friend of mine who was born and raised where I live now has seen snow here in every month of the year, over the years.

    (I shovelled day before yesterday, and it’s snowing now, so I’ll be shovelling again after work.)Report

      In Colorado, we can also see snow in every month of the year. And we usually get sustained winter at *some* point during the winter. So it’s not really unusual, just always a cause for grumbling.

      When I want to cheer up I look at the weather where I grew up (and Jaybird grew up in Michigan, so I suspect his outlook is much the same).Report

    I hope to get some hot tub maintenance done this weekend (need to replace the flux capacitor).Report

    I am watching my nephew. With my brother (his dad) so sick, he’s been feeling neglected. So we’re having him over to play video games and give him some attention.

    The only problem with my plans is my nephew is not quite six, and really wants to play Minecraft. I’ve never played it (we have it for PS4) so I’m gonna have to help him play it. If he was two or three years older, the self-guided nature of the game would entrance him. At his age, I’m worried it’ll frustrate him.Report

    It’s been a weird winter all across North America. Everyone else seems to be having a terrible time; meanwhile, southwest BC has barely had winter at all. February’s usually a miserable, windy, rainy, cold month; this year it’s been lovely, and 10ºC a lot fo the time. The cherry trees are now in full bloom; normally, they bloom in April. Normally, the ones in DC, 10 degrees of latitude south of here, bloom in April. This is unprecedented.

    So, from everyone up here: keep on drivin’! (And special thanks to Alberta!) If things go on at this rate, we’ll be California within my lifetime. (On the downside, California will be a desert. More so than it is already.)Report

    Lee just finished the CA bar so tonight is dinner at Monsieur Benjamin with the family:


    Saturday, I have to get up early and take Lee to the airport because he doesn’t know how to fly at sensible hours. I will also be doing my taxes on Saturday.

    Sunday is for hiking in Marin and maybe late lunch in Mill Valley.Report

    Last weekend didn’t manage to FEEL like a weekend for whatever reasons, so I’m hoping to enjoy this one. I just started on an anti-pain drug that seems to have a side effect of making me feel very mellow about everything, but not at all fuzzy, so the odds are good.

    Work till 10 tonight, tomorrow we may or may not have plans depending on how much the weather delayed the people we might be seeing’s road trip, Sunday is another family birthday celebration.

    Otherwise lots of loafing.

    Oh, and I think the closet of Doom has good odds of actually being de-doomed by the end of the weekend.Report

    Busy weekend. Tomorrow I will rush through laundry as fast as possible. An afternoon birthday party for two of the nephews. Harry Connick Jr concert tomorrow night and if i can convince the wife we’ll jet to a friend’s how to watch the end of the UFC event.

    Sunday morning I’ll spend a little time with the family and then off to the airport for my last trip to Connecticut for a few weeks. I have officially spent more nights in East Hartford than any other city except Louisville. I have to say though, the food up there is pretty darn good.Report
