Blizzard Warning

As you may recall, I have a new phone. One of the first things I downloaded from the android marketplace was the weather channel application.

Today it showed me the temperature was 45, but in the same panel was a little square. A red square with an exclamation point inside it. You know this can't be good news. Is good news ever hearalded by a red box with an exclamation point inside it?

When you touch the little red box, you get a notice that there's a blizzard warning. Yes, a blizzard warning.

There's a certain criteria for a blizzard. I can't recite it all, but lets just sum it up by saying lots of snow and wind, combining for near whiteout conditions. That's what's headed for us. On Dec. 23/24. Happy Birthday to me.

Needless to say, many people's travel plans are being changed, even as we speak/write/read.
