  1. So many people complain about snow but i would rather have snow than forest fires, earthquakes, landslides, drought etc… that California has. I love that image from Russia before the Revolution

  2. Heh. This works, since I just got back inside from shoveling 8 inches of snow (and did both my next door neighbors, too). Only I was not silent. And I hope no one took pictures. ;P

      1. Indeed they do not. Rather be sitting where Forrest Stanley is sitting, with a downpour outside the window. Instead just watched another burnt orange sunset sifted through smoke drift clouds.

        We’re 100+ miles northwest of the Thomas Fire, btw 🙁
