  1. It's snowing sideways.

      Here too and i'm up in VT!  Windy one out there! 

    2. GoldLeader


      Windy as hell here too!   But it's nice (48 degrees) except for the wind. 

  2. "I know it's only rock 'n' roll, but I like it, like it, yes I do!..."

    1. GoldLeader


      Rock and Roll ain't noise pollution.

  3. We've got a conveyor belt of Low pressure cells.  I like the snow but tomorrow it's supposed to be icy which I don't like.

    1. desiv


      Yeah I teleworked today for that reason.  I can do rain and snow no problem.  But freezing rain/black ice?  That's the great equalizer.. ;-)

    2. GoldLeader


      I'll take snow any day over black ice!

  4. My Atari 2600 croaked or at least the power switch did.  Good thing I have a couple of spare consoles.

    1. Kiwi


      Probably the power adaptor. 

  5. 15 F and the heat isn't keeping up.  It is 64 with the heat set on 68.

      I only say this because my dad just had the same thing happen.  The temp wouldn't go above 66 and he found his filter clogged even though he replaced it in November.  As soon as he replaced the filter, everything worked again.

    3. GoldLeader


      Maybe use a space heater for the room you're in?  I've got a Far Infrared Ray heater to take the edge off...

      15 is nothing if it's sized properly.  Is it a Carrier, Payne or Bryant?

  6. It's snowing again!  It's just like last Sunday.


  7. We just had a bird in the house.  The cat was going nuts.  We finally cornered it and I was able to grab it and put it back outside.  It was a small bird, a sparrow I think. 

    Oh yeah, it was able to get in because I left the door cracked open while I went to get the newspaper.

      I guess that means that you will receive bad news or someone you know will die.

      So parrot owners always have bad luck?

    3. GoldLeader


      I suppose black cat owners are up the creek as well?  LOL

  8. It had pretty much stopped snowing yesterday and I shoveled the whole driveway.  The snow started back up and it snowed another 4 to 5 inches.

      I read today that someone in my city had exited a store, got snow on his shoes and called the police. During the call he realized they wouldn't do much about it, so he abandoned the call.

  9. We could get another 4 inches of snow today.  That would make 8 total which is what they forecast for yesterday.  8 to 12

    1. x=usr(1536)


      We're just getting the cold end of the storm with nothing to show for it.  Bleh.

    2. simbalion


      We got about six inches here with perhaps another inch total left to go. Already been doing some digging out since it is just warm enough to get some melting going on.

  10. It's snowing! here in north central Maryland.

    It started about 1 hour ago but it is still snowing lightly.



    1. joeatari1


      Nothing here in southeast PA yet.  Waiting for this Nor'Easter to blow through.  Work never closes before these things and usually closes only after the roads are too bad to drive on.  One time it took me 3 hours to get home and I live about a half hour away normally.

    2. Atarian7


      I think we are getting the bulk of it tomorrow between 9am and 7pm.  But you never know what will change.


    3. joeatari1


      Started here around 11.  Just beginning to lay on my deck.  Yeah, I think the bulk of it will be tomorrow.

  11. The mega millions is now up to $970 million for tomorrow's drawing.

      It reminds me of that Pinball Fantasies table "Billion Dollar Game Show" in which one of the outrageous jackpot prizes is a ... wait for it ... 72 inch TV!!! 25-30 years later it is perhaps not a household staple but common enough to not be considered outrageous.

  12. One time I had a dream that all my teeth had miraculously grown back.

  13. "In every life we have some trouble, But when you worry you make it double.  Don't worry,  Be happy"

  14. No mega millions winner last night.  The next jackpot for Tuesday is $850 million.

      the carrot gets bigger and further away every time.

  15. The holidays flew by this year.  Or rather the last part of last year and the first day of this year.


    1. Rhomaios


      2020 was both the longest and shortest year of my life.

      Man, I love that film.  They never show it on TV here in the UK and everyone I know has never seen it or even heard of it. :(

  18. The newspaper says snow showers are likely on Friday.  I looked up weather on google and it says 0% chance of precipitation on Friday.  LOL

  19. Happy first day of winter.

    1. carlsson


      Yeah, the longest night of the year just begun over here.

  20. We were supposed to get 12 to 18 inches of snow.  We got 5 inches.

      Just don't taunt mother nature.  She'll double that amount of snow and maybe a tornado.

      but I'll bet you *told* everyone that it was 12" to 18", though...

  21. "...we've got no place to go, so let it snow , let it snow, let it snow..."

      That's such a great album top to bottom.

  23. "It was the classic mother bb gun block."

    1. pacman000


      I think 20/20 did that for my mom; when they ran that special about a boy who got a BB embedded in his brain. (Going by a 20+ year-old memory, forgive me if I got some details wrong.)

  24. Happy Thanksgiving to you all.  Thanksgiving is a little depressing for me this year.  It's just my Mom and me. (My sister passed away May 1.)  We're having a turkey breast instead of the whole bird.

      I lost my grandfather earlier this year, so it's a bittersweet Thanksgiving for us, too.  Much to be thankful for, just the same.

    3. PacManPlus


      I'm so sorry for your loss :(

    4. Atarian7


      Yes jaybird3rd, you're right.  I could be out in the cold and starving among other things.

  25. My computer clock will be right again at 2 AM.
