    We have crazy weather here! Over the weekend, it was anywhere from 10 - 40 degrees. Today, it's 60 and by the weekend, we're suppose to get rain/snow and ice.
    You can feed the problem or the solution.... Whichever you feed is the one that will grow...

    Yesterday and especially in the evening the weather liars on tv were telling us we were going to get
    3 to 5 inches of snow overnight and today and that we could possibly all die.
    This morning it was 37 degrees and raining. It is after 2PM now and it is still raining.
    Where do these people go to school........the Popeil Pocket Weatherman's University?

    About 3 months ago every channel was telling us we were going to have an historic storm.
    Damaging winds, rain up the wazoo, I just got my wazoo fixed, and it was going to be Armageddon.
    Schools announced closures ahead of time. Business closed up and boarded up.
    The next day.............nothing. Maybe 25 to 35 mph winds and a little rain.

    No one here pays attention to them any more They have become a joke which is sad because if we
    do ever have a destructive storm approaching no one will heed their warnings.
    However, all things considered, it is nice to watch those 5 reporters staring down at that one snowflake
    and making it feel welcomed. They obviously got an 'A' in "Look of Fear" class. They seem to be terrified.

    ...............and now back to our regular programming.................
    I have stuff.
    I try to make music with it.
    Sometimes it works.
    Sometimes it doesn't.
    But I keep on trying.

    In the 20s all weekend- 30s Monday- 40s Tuesday- 50s today- 60s tomorrow- and may hit 72 Friday. RANGE DAY!
    If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen! Samuel Adams
