Warning to all. My AV software, Kaspersky, went apeshit at this site. Warnings
malicious software, worms, and probably dandruff too.
Could be false alarms, just thought I'd pass it on, but it won't allow me to
access the site, and
that's sufficient for me. Kas was my second line defense (first was a complete
hard drive backup)
back in the days when I thought I wanted to know lots about hackin' and crackin'.
We only got about 5 inches of snow today. In this part of the country,
we are far behind what we normally have for snow at this time. I
think we are only at 23" for the year. Luckily it has stayed south of
Three years ago we had a 36" snowfall in our yard followed by 24"
about a month later, in addition to the little 4"-6" stuff every few
days. We only had 5" last year and haven't had *any* this year. ;-)
Did I hear they were trucking in snow for the Olympics?
I did look at Accuweather.com for Vancouver and did not see where it got
down to or below freezing for the next 15 days. All those days with
precipitation in the forecast called for rain or showers.
Maybe at the higher altitudes . . . .

I'll take snow over all kinds of other winter weather. All I have to do
with snow is plow it off the driveway and ice rink. If I happen to be out
early enough in the day, the sun takes care of whatever the plow doesn't
You guys in the northeast have gotten way more than your share. It would
be interesting to have that much snow once, but I'm in no hurry to

The Northeast has a habit of fairly big dumps (BD) every once in a while.
Most winters there is at least one BD. This year a few areas have gotten
a BD more than once, and rather close together. Then it ceases to be
fun, especially if the power goes out.
For me, today was alright (in North Jersey we didn't get anything of that
first BD DC received 5 days ago). Today I didn't feel the need to go
commute into NYC, it wasn't cold (right around freezing), and while
heavy, the snow shoveled well enough. But it would not be fun if we got
another BD in a few days ...
We have a customer who came to Tucson from your area of the country last
Thursday. Friday, he called me and said his flight had been canceled and he
was scheduled to go out Saturday morning. Fortunately he had kept his car
and hotel room. Got a call Monday morning -- he was still in Tucson and do
some work. He was scheduled to leave Tuesday morning. This afternoon one
of our other people got a call -- he's still stuck here. It's going to take
days for the air traffic to clear up after this is all over.
There is never a situation where having more rounds is a disadvantage
