“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

The white stuff...in Alabama!!!

This was the view from in front of my house this morning...

We haven't had accumulation like this in Birmingham since SnowStorm'92 or whatever the year. Of course there's been a run on milk and bread by dummies who don't realize it'll all melt by noon. Anyway, it's pretty while it lasts. When I was taking pictures at 7:00 this morning, I could already hear the sounds of snowball fights around the neighborhood.

I know what you're thinking. "How does somebody as cynical as Ed get excited about a little snow?"

You don't understand, we get 2"-5" of accumulation maybe once every 10-20 years. It'll be mostly gone in a few hours and another generation will grow up before we see it again.

Ed, you forget, those 10-20 years will keep getting longer and longer unless we illegalize cars and farting.

We had loads of the white stuff in Lancashire in January. It lasted a few weeks and was several inches deep. This is the first winter in several years where we've had such a fall.

There's nothing nicer than seeing big fat snow flakes drifting down especially if you don't have to get to work!
