Lots o links to amaze and amuse

That’s enough to keep you busy for now.


They are calling for “Snow showers” on some sites and “several inches of accumulation” on Weather.gov local forecast discussion for Monday into Tuesday. I have no choice but to quote Ezra Pound.

Winter is Icummen in
(Ezra Pound)

Winter is icummen in,
Lhude sing Goddamm,
Raineth drop and staineth slop
And how the wind doth ramm!
Sing: Goddamm.
Skiddeth bus and sloppeth us,
An ague hath my ham.
Freezeth river, turneth liver
Damn you, sing: Goddamm.
Goddamm, Goddamm, tis why I am,
So ‘gainst the winter’s balm
Sing Goddamm, damm, sing Goddamm
Sing Goddamm, sing Goddamm,

Weather report percentages can vex viewers

The percentage, by the way, refers to the percent of days that experience precipitation when the expected weather conditions are in place.

Well hell, if I’d’ve known that, a whole lot of other things would’ve made sense years ago. Like how we can be in 80% chance of snow when it’s snowing on me.

At least I’m not alone.
