Teh Squeaky Wheel
People think that after a nuclear holocaust only cockroaches will survive. Yeah, maybe, but I’d bet on coons as well.
Actually, according to the show “Revolution”, it’ll be cockroaches and Brett Michaels.
Which I thought was hysterical, but ::shudder::
We’re waiting on the ice pellets. I’m a little apprehensive as I’ve got a Tea Party meeting this evening -- right when the moisture’s supposed to hit, and shortly before the temps drop below 32°. It *could* be an interesting ride home.
G’day from “Oh Carp, Oh Fark, Oh Jeebus We’re All Going To Die!!1!” yet Happy Larryville, GN!
A visit to sites for local commercial media outlets this morning yields very little news other than articles related to teh expected snow and ice. A random selection of article titles just from the AJC:
Winter Storm headed for Georgia.
Winter storm warning expanded to include all of metro Atlanta southward to Dublin.
Quick shutdown of Atlanta schools avoids risk of snowjam repeat.
The dark side: avoiding power outage problems.
Flashback Fotos: A brief history of Georgia deep freezes.
Photos: Storm arrives in Georgia.
Atlanta weather | Ice has officials most concerned.
What the superintendents said about staying open.
State of emergency declared for 14 north Georgia counties already under winter storm warning.
That’s nowhere near all of them.
So…we might have to stay home for two or three days; OH NOOOOOOOOOES!!!!!!1! Criminy -- It’s as though we’re expecting 18″ of snow, a 7.0 earthquake, a tsunami and a Sharknado all in the next 48-72 hours.
In the event these are the last words I’m ever able to post here: “I REGRET NOTHING!” 😉
Those racoons in teh thread pic are probably pretending to be Pennywise teh clown:
Good morning, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Sven and Fatwa!
Fatwa -- if worse comes to worse, I hear that capodimonte lamps can be used as firewood. I’m sure I read that somewhere.
I’d appreciate a citation which I can share with FuglyLampsK should the need arise, ’cause I don’t think she’d believe the likes of me. (For the record, teh cat Sven gave to her is perfectly safe due to its sentimental value…despite its potential use as kindling.)
Naw, that’s incorrect, Paddy. You don’t have to burn the Capodimonte to stay warm--merely hugging the objects will generate enough heat to allow you to survive in even the coldest of weather. The intrinsic beauty of the pieces generate their own warmth.
Stay warm and safe, Fatwa. Tell Brenda to stay home. As we struggle out here with temps touching 80 today, we’ll be thinking of you guys.
And good morning Fatwa and Paddy!
The intrinsic beauty of the pieces generate their own warmth.
The same could be said for Thomas Kinkaide’s work, y’know. 😉 Speaking of which, I like Joan Didion’s criticism:
“A Kinkade painting was typically rendered in slightly surreal pastels. It typically featured a cottage or a house of such insistent coziness as to seem actually sinister, suggestive of a trap designed to attract Hansel and Gretel. Every window was lit, to lurid effect, as if the interior of the structure might be on fire.”
It’s been “ice pelleting” here for about the last thirty minutes. Not really sticking, as it’s currently 34F -- and will allegedly get up to a steamy 38 -- but it’s supposed to drop below freezing sometime after midnight…and the fun will begin in earnest.
Has the fun begun? All you guys stay safe and warm.
