Happy Snowpocalypse Friday, GN!

Love -- and approve of -- the thread pic, Mac.

Just checked teh Larryville forecast; doesn’t look like things are going to be all that bad here. Mostly just cold and rainy with the possibility of a little brief icing of the roads in the wee hours overnight.

We’re good on turlet paper, coffee, half-and-half and chocolate. 🙂

Hi Fatwa,

Here’s hoping that your weather forecast is correct and things are OK.

For the Texas gerbils, given the choice, which city would you rather visit: San Antonio or Austin?

And off to work I go! BTW, has anyone heard from Jerry? Everything OK with him?

Hai, Sven!

I’ve not heard from Jerry so I dunno nothin’.

Here’s hoping that your weather forecast is correct and things are OK.

Cheers; looking good thus far. I generally rely on Weather Underground:

http://www.wunderground.com

In addition to finding their “Wundermap” very useful, they also provide a trove of historical weather data. (Which was handy when we got whacked with that BS lawsuit years ago.)

Their forecasting is as good as anyone’s…and better than most, IMHO.

Happy Friday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa and Sven!

I wonder if the lab will leave enough food for a cat scan? Probably not.

I hope the Georgia contingent doesn’t get hit with freezing rain -- that’s the kind of mess no one wants to be part of.

I haven’t heard from Jerry in a while. I hope he’s doing alright and doesn’t have to travel during this storm.

Hai, Paddy --

Based on what I’m seeing, we might have a few hours of freezing temps very early tomorrow morning but would expect very little ice past late morning. (However, I wouldn’t want to be parked at the bottom of K8-E’s driveway if I had somewhere to be in the morning.) 🙂

We’re only expecting 0.4″ of rain overnight and most of that will fall before we hit freezing. And it should get above freezing by 10:00 a.m. Compared with the NE part of the country, we’re looking pretty good, I think.

Hai, Cali!

Heh…that’s a first, since it’s not blurry, overexposed, etc. 🙂

From Pro Sound News:

At a rally in Pensacola, FL, Trump had microphone issues and insisted from the podium that his campaign not pay the sound vendor. We think he was kidding about stiffing the sound company (mostly), but to be fair, you can hear audio issues in the video clip.

Commenting on Trump’s suggestion that the sound company would not get compensated, one mischievous sound pro noted, “At this time, I’d say turn off the system and walk away…either way, you are not getting paid.” Another responded, “Or, slowly add delay, and watch him begin to stumble over his words before he even realizes why…lol.”

[Delay = echo. Especially disconcerting if the “live” signal is lowered in volume and all he heard from the PA was the echo.]

Meh.

Georgia’s both somewhat freer than CA and saner than FL. (The latter being “The Australia of the U.S.”, what with all the deadly fauna as well as Florida Man.) 🙂

In other news, Abe Vigoda is still not dead. His pants were unavailable for comment.

Stay safe, guys.

Checking Mrs Sven’s flight home--it’s boarding which means that at least she’ll get on time and leave the frigid midwest. Sucks for her tho--she won’t be home until 1 in the morning or so.

Hope Mrs. Sven is arriving at BUR and has a pleasant flight.
