Arctic journey.

In the harsh winter morning light, Meade treks through the back yard to find Zeus.

We're not believers in the Greek Gods as a religion, just borrowers of a dog named Zeus who arrives through that path between those 2 buildings.

Be happy you're not in Atlanta, where neither the Mayor nor the Governor knows how to react to a well-advertised-in-advance emergency.

It's arctic there too.

My dog is not liking the cold. Too much paw burn from salt, I think. And I will not get him those ridiculous booties.

My scotty keeps peeing on his back paw which freezes almost instantly. That dog will never be a Rhodes Scholar.

I was driving over a kind of high bridge over Lake Champlain where you can see into Canada. There are fishing shacks, tents, and ice fisherman on the ice on the Canadian side of the border as if somebody sprinkled them there with a pepper shaker. The US side is empty.

My Lab starts raising one foot at a time outside at about -15 air temp after being outside a few minutes. Warmer than that and he is good to go, rolling in the snow and barking at bunnies.

Ohio this morning. Minus 8 or so.

Sunday when it was a bit colder.

Here is a real time temperature wind map:


Compare your area to Siberia before you complain too much :)

Speaking of Snow(den) Norway lawmakers nominate Snowden for Nobel

Did Zeus decide to go on a walk-about?

Siberian husky dogs have interesting feet. Not only are they webbed like a labs, but they are furry as well. Kinda like their own little snow shoes.
I found out yesterday that if the sun is bright she'll lay down in the snow on the deck and sun bathe.

Oh! It's up to +19.4! "Feels like 10."

My lab loves rolling in the snow when it's below zero. More abrasive?

Trek as pronoun, sure sure Libs through and through, is still an employer and I remove hat from head in a figurative spirit.

What do they think of the 1% nomenclature until absolved of sin for being Lib? Have they payed for barriers to entry for others via "the kids" legislation so as to stifle competion?

They think "that discrimination cannot happen to me so I shall shriek and spittle as per required to focus the hate toward them" or some such deplorem is all my imagination conjures with confabulation of the great state of Wisconsin.

If deplorem works in that previous sentence we're all more $&@)!?& than I thought, and I pretty much have been saying we are all !'?)($&?ed for a !?'jking long time now.

Long time.

More seriously, if you believe in global warming you get your ass to Mexico now. To live and not pollute and kill the future. To not do the opposite of what Frank sang about in The ImpossibleDream or whatever the name is. I on Ipad 4 gen meaning I can't find or link or create ?,;$&?butninstead write what I hope is accurate enough only to inspire links and clicks and Amazon love for Volocgk or however the conspiracy spells it.

If you believe in Climate Change, deport to Texas today friendo.

NotquiteunBuckley said...

After careful thought and with much, way way more than I had planned on at least, consideration, the facts are in and all agree with me.

Warm areas of America like Texas or Alabama or Oklahoma or South Carolina have less need to kill their grandchildren by pollution than the need by those up North like in New York and Vermont and Washington and Oregon (no shame nor concept of it would allow such wasteful use of energy when lands of beauty and grace that don't kill the future sit silent and silently yearning even, inhabited not) so we can conclude apathy; hence the evil again, by those future-haters-by-their-pollution-we-shall-know-them usurpers.

I am a Mormon bigot. My understanding is shallow, but beyond me being homo sapien I don't believe their understanding of me is deeper.

Does the average Morman walking around thinking they are equivalent to Jesus Christ understand me or just call my anti-Mormon bigotry bigotry? A bigot would do everything Mormons thinking they are Jesus would do.

Catholics wouldn't, at least as far as our Supreme Court.

If Mormons don't walk around thinking they are equal to Jesus, I have nothing but unbigoted thoughts about each and every unique individual I encounter that doesn't believe they are Jesus walking.

Was Mitt's campaign a good one?

Did his $&$)( work or did he have no chance and if so why didn't he know?

Mitt the great had no clue how to turn out the vote, what I was hiring him for.

But now, after 40-year-old-choir-boy running mate shows himself as a shithead raping military future-income for the reason it won't be seen(!)(!)(!) some think that One Hero is fucking Mitt Goddamned Romney.

NotquiteunBuckley said...

Michael K. Or whatever to me is like Michael Savage.

Totally shit.

Not rhhardin shit.

Just get some cash by abortion or whatnot.

Those souls aren't in your position, hence unequal, so kill it. Every time. It could be a shit fetus from pimps and vessels of life unlifeworthy like girls too young. Could get trouble from those like me.

NotquiteunBuckley said...

Everything Tupac said about those people trying to kill him started in the womb.

Since it was a black womb it was supposed to be dead, per lib design via eugenics and Planned Parenthood' we all aren't to care.

Fuck that.

You can't see me.

Your blind eyes.

You can't see me.

You can't see me.

(Your blind eyes)

Ask him why he was a boss gettin' by?

NotquiteunBuckley said...

In the quasi-name of one WFB I do adhere to the Tupacs and Pee Wees amongs.

There is that, and other.

I strongly advocate for other when not embarrassing.
