This is the first snowfall of the new year.
Actually, it's also the first snowfall of last year, as it came in yesterday.
Fortunately, I had both yesterday and today off and didn't need to go out. Needless to say, I didn't have to worry about all the out-of-state idiots in their four-wheel drives who just barrel through any ice and snow on the roads, never thinking that they might actually have to stop.
It's also the first day of [gasp] 2015. How scary is that? We're in the land of both Isaac Asimov's classic short story "Runaround," Robert Zemeckis' "Back to the Future 2," "The 6th Day," with Arnold Schwartzeneggar, and only four years short of "Blade Runner." Also, see here.
It's good to be lazy every once in a while. Fortunately my cat, Sweetie, knows on which side her bread is buttered.
Happy New Year to all!
