Let's talk about the weather
This afternoon's view from my window

Few topics have the potential to bring commonality to strangers as the weather. When you take a bunch of folks who have never met each other and stick them in the same room, chances are
they'll be sharing perspectives on Ma Nature before long. Inevitably, the air will fill with good natured bitching before they head back to their usual routine.
Or so I've been told.
I had grave fears about pulling the wondercamera out of its bag in the middle of a raging blizzard. So I did the next best thing: I got out my trusty bottle of Windex and walked around the house, shooting randomly out the window. Here's the pastoral scene in our back yard. Makes you want to break out the big wooly blankets, doesn't it?
Your turn: Look out your window and tell us what you see. Don't overthink it...
One more thing: My tax dollars support many things, including a bunch of unelected senators who travel the country, pretending to "consult" with important people on important "policy issues" when in reality they're just sucking on the public teat until they die. But sometimes, the government does something useful, like fund some funky weather services and make the super-detailed results available on the Interweb (you know, the thing made of tubes.) I've posted a screen grab of the radar picture from earlier this evening. Kinda looks like a ginormous hand, smacking the dickens out of the region, doesn't it?
