Winter Solstice 2007: Dec 22, 6:08 am Universal Time
Be sure to adjust for your time zone:
EST: Dec 22, 1:08 am
CST: Dec 22, 12:08 am
MST: Dec 21, 11:08 pm
PST: Dec 21, 10:08 pm
Solstice is a day that I always find interesting. It is the darkest day of the year. Some think that winter should start today just because that is when the sun is at its lowest. This year at least, winter has been a lot earlier than that. I get encouraged by the solstice by the fact that since it is the darkest day of the year, it means that the days will start getting longer. It will not be noticable at first but it will slowly lengthen and then pick up speed by the equinox.

Which Harry Potter Character Are You?
|You are Ron. You're the typical sidekick. Sometimes you get jealous of your more popular friends, but that's only because you don't how much work it is to be in the spotlight.|

We got a foot of snow last night. It was interesting listening to the scanner and hearing the plow crews during a coordination of what roads to do. The snow came a lot later than the weather forecasters were calling for. We also did not come close to the maximums they were calling for last night. I understand the need to warn the public so you can be prepared and make smart choices but to over warn can cause as much problems as not being warned. We went caroling yesterday with the kids from church. To listen to the weather people, we should not have even gone out the door at noon. As it was, it did not get slick to late afternoon and we still went out for pizza at 6pm last night. i was glad to get in when we did because it was getting to the point where it was not bad but it was time to start heading home and staying put for the night.
Anymore, if I hear that bad weather is coming, it just mean that I need to pay attention and do what I need to until the weather puts an end to that. I think those who participate in panic mongering about the weather should be slapped and publicly humiliated for stirring things up. In a demented sorta way its funny but it gets old in a hurry.
Anyway, we are dug out for now, I will be spending the next few days to get the driveway and sidewalks cleaned up better but they are functional now. It is suppose to be clear for the next couple of days and I am hoping but not counting that will also help with the snow clean up. That doesn't always work. that doesn't start working until March and then not always all the well.
Until later, keep warm and keep your stick on the ice.

I have also been checking out some mp3 shows. It is an interesting exercise. Quit a few of them have the feel of audio blogs with the quality control of blogs. Some stuff is quite good: others not so much. Yes, I am aware that goes against this blog as well. I hope this is interesting. I am sure there are some that see this as just another net monkey tapping away on a keyboard in cyberspace and someone should have ct the feed a long time ago. The internet has set forth a whole new ways of communication and it is not all good. The trick as with all media is getting a good signal to noise ratio. All medias are prone to carpiness. Some more than others.

Some schools are on bus delays and others are just starting to call in that they are closed. The big problem is getting the secondary roads clear enough for the buses to safely go on. The reports say that the main roads are pretty much clear. In other words, pretty much normal for the average closing. If it is really bad, then all the roads are snafu'ed.
I have to feel sorry for Mike Schultz as WAWK. He is trying to deal with running the station, doing the school closings and taking the calls for the school closings all by himself. He is waiting for others to get in this morning. I have hear him apologize twice for dead air time because he had to take the call to get more updates.

Keep it to yourself. I HATE DEALING WITH SNOW. PERIOD. Until you white Christmas fanatics can figure out on how to keep it off the roads, sidewalks and driveways, keep your pieholes shut. I agree it's pretty and fun to play in. It is also extra hard work, and a hazard to me and mine while we are one the road. Please remember that we all don't have the luxury of staying in town over the holidays. While you are snuggled inside, all nice and warm, admiring the snow, remember that some of us need to travel hours to see family for the holidays. If the snow cancels it out, it is not a simple reschedule. That just ate up our chance to see family together for the holidays. Merry f-ing Christmas.
If you did not know it earlier, that's fine. No big. Now you are warned. I don't want to hear about unless you want to either hear a never ending chorus of this rant or come up with a solution to the snow trespassing on our raods, sidewalks and driveways. Thank you for your support.
