What a serious morning this is. Yesterday was nice, the sun was shinning, the temps here got up to 66 (F) and it was almost possible to believe everything was right with the world. Of course, that was not to be. Accuweather began sending notifications late yesterday afternoon. The cold was returning, and bringing with it snow and ice. Right now they're predicting for around 3 inches (about the size of Putin's dick), to begin falling when I leave work this evening. Isn't it a good thing I'm off tomorrow?
Yesterday was busy here. I did a large water change in the big tank - algae, you know, it helps to keep it in check. I was also surprised to see there was algae starting up in the new tank, which is in a location that will never get direct sunlight, and I'm beginning to believe the main culprit is the LED lighting all tanks come with nowadays. The old fluorescent lighting was never this bright, and while the lighting on the big tank can be adjusted, that on the new tank cannot. Shit.
Since I've begun writing The Body Under Ice, I've been looking for song lyrics. Thanks to Sirius XM, this one is probably going to be included.
And, of course, Russia has invaded the Ukraine. Only a dumbass would have believed Putin's lies. He was rather blatant about it too, wasn't he? He and Macron sitting at the long, white table was a set piece, nothing more. Trump is ecstatic. In his small mind this is what a strong leader does... invade. And the GOP continues to fracture. They desperately want to blame Biden and are doing so publicly, but only the MAGAs want to side with Putin. Perhaps the idea of something like that happening in this country is striking a little too close. I do hope you realize that there is a certain group of Republicans who would have no problem attacking cities in the United States to force their will upon the people. The idea that would lead to a horrific insurgency simply doesn't occur to them, the same way it doesn't occur to Putin. Yes, that's right, they are that damn dumb.
