First the lighteningstorm came; cue the sky. Great booming thunder right on time, syncopated against the meteorologist's prediction - a timing not seen before, nor since. Simultaneously exciting and calming in its display of sheer, unbridled power.

Then the ice fell from the sky in sheets; sleet, pelting against the bedroom windows in a drumming tip-tap suggestive of a causal request for entry, promising much more. Cathrine home from the moors, wishing to be let in. Rain to frozen rain covering the ground and building upon each other like molecules when the universe created itself.

Three days the stillness took us, captivated us in an encased prison the likes I haven't seen since the Dallas Ice Storm of 1978...and then the snow fell. Enormous flakes gathering like a tidal wave, absorbing all ambient sound as if manifesting a tonal black-hole void of sonic influences.

In its midst - VPN and production tasks, rolling blackouts and spectacular exploding backup generators - enter a plea to the Department of Energy via the DoD; my wife & my clone both present - I am accounted for. Very well accounted for.

Does it remind you of St. Louis? :)

I am a little jealous of the snow. I miss it much more than I thought I ever would. But then again, I just want the good parts. Not the blackouts and shoveling.

The problem with the Midwest is they have six months of this shit. Despite everything we're still looking at about six days :P

Hey! It's only five months and three weeks! Hmmph!!!

it is gorgeous out, but huge parts of the next county over are still without power and we had another 3 inches of snow yesterday. Mother Nature needs to stop now, lol

I'm glad you're doing well, though. Hang in there and stay warm (I personally recommend snuggling as the best way to accomplish this).
