The Weekend will end tonight! At midnight! That was for all of you who weren't sure because there is this storm moving up the east coast. Well, not exactly, and only kind of bring snow and freezing rain up into Central PA. States to the south are going to get hit and some of them don't do well with snow and ice. Right now our forecasters are saying we might get between 1 and 3 inches of mixed precipitation. I told you that's what we were going to end up getting. Just when will we get this snowy, icy, freezing rain Slurpee? Well, they're not even sure on that, so let's just say the slop should start falling between 1300 and 1800.
On the interesting side of things, while I was poring over maps of Mackinac Island, I discovered a small islet to the the northeast called Edison Island. The small environmental research station run by the Navy was shut down several years ago leaving nature to slowly reclaim the buildings. Personally, I think this makes for a really great setting for The Body Under Ice.
Oh, and in case you didn't hear, Novak Djokovic lost his bid to stay in Australia. 😁 Boy, I'll bet he's pouting like hell. Back when I was in the Navy, we were always being told that when you're in a foreign country, you follow their rules. Rather than do that, Djokovic lied, for a while he almost got away with it, but then he compounded his insult to Australia by telling people he tested positive for Covid and chose not to quarantine. He went places because he's a famous tennis player. Now he's going home.
And will Putin invade the Ukraine? Of course. He has this little boner which is telling him to take Russia back to the time of the Czars. Like a lot of little boners, his will screw him over. There will end up being a bloody insurgency, and shortly after that starts, Kazakhstan's going to begin biting his ass again. With insurgencies raging on both ends of the country, the Russian people are going to start stomping their feet shouting "Putey baby, put your little boner back in your pants," but by then it will be too late for him.
And, finally, the biggest loser in America, the greatest liar to make an appearance of the soon the soon to be defunct OANN (Cracker Jack Crazy Cable News Network), Donald Trump was in Arizona yesterday. That's right, he held a rally for The Big Lie and a lot of crazies were in attendance. Since this loser can't do anything else but lie, he... well, lied. Surprisingly, he didn't get a lot of press coverage because, well, his lies are old. He, and his party, are rapidly becoming a broken record. This is how the the Republican Party dies, not with a bang, but with whimpering lie.
When a snow storm gets blow up to proportions, which seems to be every snowflake...never fails, it doesn't amount to nothing. I have have Mondays off so it didn't affect he either way.ReplyDelete
No news should give that turd press.
I'm supposed to work tomorrow... yippy Skippy. Not getting media coverage must have hurt his ego terribly.Delete
We didn't get any snow. Just some cold temperatures. I'll be really interested in a mystery based in my home state. I have plans to visit Mackinac Island this September with Tink and Tech if you need field research :).ReplyDelete
Still at work and it is snowing like hell. The book will be Winter themed.Delete
Djokovic can FOAD.ReplyDelete
Thanks for that, I was thinking about her yesterday.Delete
Stay safe in that storm. It's probably not so bad in PA, which is used to snow, but it hate to think what it would be/is like in southern States that can't cope with it!ReplyDelete
Planning on doing just that.Delete
And the MAGAts could write their checks and get their Names broadcast Live as 'Patriots'... so he's still running his Con and as long as the Rubes send him Money, the Grift will continue. He held it in beautiful downtown FLORENCE... bwhaahaha, I'm being sarcastic of coarse, it's a small Prison Town, very fitting, perhaps they can reserve him a Cell? Putin's lil Boner, well, may he reap all he sows too... Russia has been a diminishing Super Power for a long time now... sadly, so is the U.S. given our divisive Political cluster fuck that keeps worsening as our Lunatic Fringe tries to emulate every Banana Republic Authoritarian Regime... how has that ever worked out for any Country led by Lunatic Authoritarians? Yeah... we're devolving with Eyes wide fucking shut.ReplyDelete
I'd say their desperation unhinges them, but they've been unhinged for decades now.Delete
Oh, I forgot to add: Djokovic WHO? *Bwahahaha*ReplyDelete
