    61 degrees-With jalapeños and refried cheese and slow cooked cabrito. That's just for breakfast.....lunch is coming up and salad ain't gonna cut it. Hopefully everyone in the NE is doing well......Maybe start a snow cone stand?

    Safe and warm here. Its hard to tell how much snow we got because the wind is blowing it all around, but I'm guessing 14 inches. I cleared my car and deck path for furry walking, and my nice neighbor helped with the snow mountain in front of the car courtesy of the plows.

    Now I just wait for the car rodeo...cowboy up!

      Pro Pane....the gift of Cookery. Let the Rodayo begin. Stay safe and warm. :))

      14 inches?! Oh, you meant snow. Well, that's still pretty impressive. Keep warm and be safe!

    Snowfall update: we've got about 3 inches on the ground now, with the heaviest snow starting at 9 pm tonight turning into blizzard conditions by midnight. Fun times ahead to be sure.

      Large, comfy chair, a good movie collection, some snacks and a bottle of your fave, and that sound like a night in heaven to me. Except of course for having to walk the young'uns...

      • Mary Shannon

        Yeah, having to suit up and drudge out through the snow with them in tow takes some of the fun away. Otherwise, no big deal, and I have the rodeo to look forward to in the morning.

    Ok, just back from the largest lunch in the history of, well, lunch.

    If anyone needs me, I will be napping in my recliner...

      Be careful in that chair. Rich busted a blood vessel when he got moderated this morning. It may still be .... sticky.

      Ohhhh, too late.

        This chair is Windex-Springtime fresh compared to the floor of the dungeon...What have you been doing down there? Or should I even ask...?

          Been warming up to train the new engineering manager. Gotta make sure he has just the right sense of .... humor. We'll see what happens ... come ... Monday when he starts.

          I gave my emergency contract cleaners a call. You'll have it available to use Sunday afternoon. Hope you didn't have plans for Sat. nite.

    Interesting, I can no longer post on here from my phone. What up with that?

      I haven't been able to do that in, like, a year or something. I think it's why angrybabykitty is seldom around anymore, either – though I do see her on Facebook.

      • Sir Biddle

        You scare me man, I was just looking for the same SNL skit video. HA!

        Its been awhile for me as well now that I think about it. I just randomly tried it this morning while out of the office and got nothing. Oh well.

    Question: Why is there no massive such man hunt for serial rapists and child molesters? I call BS on protecting their own.

    That is all.

      1) he's TARGETED the police!
      2) he has uncommon arms and military training so he has the potential to be particularly destructive and effective in his ugly goal of assassinating police officers AND their FAMILIES!

      • Jdizzle McHammerpants ♫♫

        I also wonder if it's 'cause they know who he is. LOL

        February 8, 2013 at 2:39 pm |
        • MicheleG™

          They know PRECISELY who he is.

          February 8, 2013 at 2:50 pm |
        • MicheleG™

          LOL is excruciatingly inappropriate.

          This issue is horrifying, gruesome, and totally ugly.

          $100 he won't be captured or taken into custody rather loaded into a coroner's vehicle when it's all said and done.

          February 8, 2013 at 2:59 pm |
        • MicheleG™

          Yes, they are expecting he will not live to old age........

          I am thinking that the gallon of milk in your fridge has a longer shelf life...

        Took me all day to realize the guy has a wedding ring on.

        And that there are three people standing there.

    Good morning, everyone. Yes, Snowzilla is headed this way, thanks for the well wishes Truth.

    I wish I could post a picture here, my coffee cup this morning would be perfect for this site. It has a polar bear, a penguin and snow falling, with the caption around the top "Blizzard Warming".

    Morning crew. Looks like someone is looking to get a raise, if not already in the photo caption.

      As Jerv and Sir Biddle discuss Nipplegate-she ponders....pushup or wire for the girls?

        Moderated again? This is a tuff town–but I'm here all week.

    Good morning all, and best wishes to the Northeast Klatchers out there (This means You, Mary Shannon, KAT and SLT)...Stay warm and stay safe...

      Thank you! It's damp and gross here. We're hoping dangerous will skip us.

      Calm down, Kansas. Just hunker down and brew up your favorite hot chocolate-from-scratch – you know, the one with that vanilla vodka you like do much? A couple of those and you won' t even you've gone blind for a whole different reason.
