Very cute Night Owl, more likes to you.
I'll probably embed my video (of the photos I took), in 4k uHD. Bet that editor is going to crash as a result too. None so far can even handle that high of a resolution (tried 3, all crashed or froze up).
This ice storm is crazy.
Thank you for the like!
If I could afford to have it made, I would order a Snowman Costume like that one in a heartbeat.
For each and every snow fall, I'd be out there, relentlessly trolling!
Here, have a pair of Snow Leopards, playing:
Some fun could be had with the snowman costume I think. Lovely pictures Night Owl, and I will say goodbye for a little time.
And did you have to shovel the driveway to that building? No, didn't think so.
Taken 3 days ago. This is the worst Dec for snow that I have ever experienced here in Alaska. It just keeps coming.
always someone with a downer
A Snow Boarding Crow!
A beautiful sunny day today at my house.
A beautiful photo of a beautiful day!
My favorite snow environment is night time:
The 21st was the shortest day of the year, so the sunlight musta hit the top. F the trees, then sunk.
yep..daylight is increasing at one minute per day for now..then it will increase slowly up to five minutes per day at it's peak in June.
Sunrise 10:14 a.m.
Sun transit 12:58 p.m.
Sunset 3:41 p.m.
Lest We Forget:
D'fuck, spoiled food?!
Outside is really damn cold, inside fridge/freezer is warming up. What to do, what to do...
Take everything out of the freezer, put it in coolers or plastic storage bins, put them in the garage or outside, keep the sunlight off of it. Wrap bungee cords around containers to keep light-fingered animals out.
Take empty 2 liter plastic pop bottles, fill mostly with water, put them outside to freeze. When frozen, put them on the top shelf of the fridge. Rotate melted bottles with new frozen ones as needed. Stick a thermometer in the fridge to make sure that it's cold but not freezing inside. Don't graze for food with the door open.
P.S. Have a few different ways of cooking food with the power off and eat like a boss!
This article makes me lose faith in man kind, can people really be that stupid? Is this why we have directions on toothpaste?
Oh hell ya they can! At least those ones lived, unlike the brainiacs using gas heaters/BBQ's/gen-sets indoors with no ventilation
Darwin Awards...... you know ya gotta...
Googled images of TO ice storm, lots there, kinda surreal.
Kudos to the hydro crews, I don't envy them their jobs. Sounds like they almost had all the grid up-and-running, but now new outages due to ice and more trees falling, sucks to be there I am think.
Yeah that dumb shit happens here in Fla everytime a storm rolls through. I never understand it, it's not like anyones going to freeze. Nope gotta have the tv, and a window shaker...oh and the fridge. That part i get but dam, put the thing outside.
If someone wants to warm up a can of soup or beans, but can't go outside, use that candle fondue set that everyone has, but no one uses. It won't be fast, but it'll get there. (A certain amount of candles are okay unless your home is an air-tight box. In that case, don't breathe either.)
At the local hardware store, I saw the cutest miniature cast iron fry pan with candle for heating scented wax. You could probably cook an egg in it, eventually. (Not very safe for its intended use if the wax in the pan gets tipped over.)
Snow attacking? Send in the army! Wait, maybe I should have said which army...
Hot here as always this afternoon in the tropics. Going to take a dip in the pool to cool off.
Meanwhile, the governor of Minnesota closed all of the state's schools already for Monday due to the cold.
Antarctic rescue ship now stuck in ice
The Chinese icebreaker which helped transport passengers away from a stranded Antarctic ship has itself become stuck in ice.
A ship which was used to rescue by helicopter 52 people from a trapped Antarctic ship has now found itself in need of rescue – after it got stuck in heavy ice.
Having not moved for several days while preparing to airlift the passengers, the Chinese-owned Snow Dragon is now wedged in ice.
The ship was used as a launch pad to pick up the passengers on Thursday, after they had spent nine days stranded. Their ship, the Akademik Shokalskiy, became wedged in ice on Christmas Eve as it was heading towards Antarctica.
This has to stop! The horror! The horror!

Really beautiful Night Owl. If this is any indication of where you live,may I kindly suggest to you, that taking pictures of the night sky from your location, is a bad idea.
Thank you for the concern, but I would never post a photo with my camera EXIF data included or would I post a photo of my own of the night sky of my own location.
However, I might fake some EXIF data to fuck with OSA retards, just for the lulz.
The photo I posted and that you re-posted is a photo I found, somewhere on a NASA site.
Here, enjoy a daylight photo of some Snow Geese, from my camera:
Going to -50 in Red Deer, shit closed the navy down in Halifax, cheap-ass navy here has no fire
Even kids are better armed against these hoards of snowbarians.
A true patriot!
Halifax area, holy frikken hell!
An Anon recently captured snowman, after a bit of persuasion (sorry about yer hair-dryer mom), yielded what seems to be some sort of battle plan ~
FUCK YOU SNOSA!!
