It never got above freezing today, people are freaking out and looting hardware stores for space heater.

OK, they're not looting, they're paying for them... for now.

I hate it when the 99% kow-tow to corporations and pay for necesary goods. :wink:

To be fair, if it's windy that can be unpleasant.

I think we had record low temperatures for the date last night. I could smell the dead plants when I got up and went outside.

Wow. Freezing temps in Florida, and it's near 70 here in Kansas. That is ass-backwards! By this time the last two years we had already had a good bit of snow and single digit temps. I'm guessing we'll be paying dearly for this indian summer.

I'm super hot, the air conditionning is not working and we are surrounded by computers so...
The problem has been transferred to the competent (this word is a joke) people, I expect it to be solved in 2015 or so.

Great...

Just a nudge or two over 20 here in southern Ohio, and flurrying at the moment.

I've had cardinals in the back yard all morning, fighting the sparrows for space on the feeder. It's like a little Vatican! :P

That's just not on the snow emergency list.

I did go to Kroger though, I got 8 rolls, hot dogs, hamburgers, pork roast, chuck roast, soda, mac & cheese...

I'm set.

Flashlight & batteries?
Water or containers to fill before it stops?
Lamp Oil?
Charcoal?
A nice long handled hammer for discouraging looters?
Vent free propane heater & fuel?

Leto II is gone for good, except for OM. The "pearl" was just that; a miniscule portion of what Leto was, and not a compressed version of the whole. The pearl that the worms have do not make them Leto, or in any way similar to him.
