Spent the better part of an hour chipping away at an impressively thick layer of ice on my car. Since I moved to TX such activity has been a rare experience. While digging in my closet for a winter jacket and gloves that I had not worn in years I felt how I imagine a fallen super hero (WINTERMAN) might feel looking to don his costume once more.
Funny thing is when I got to work no one was there. The parking lot was barren. I guess no one felt the same winter-gusto as I. Deep down I knew that would be the case but something in me wanted to press forward, to conquer the ice. All the same, I would like to publicly congratulate my workplace on their ability to notify employees of the store's closing. Fantastic.

I've still got it too. Drove through five inches of snow on unsalted or unplowed roads and made it to work (mostly uphill drive) in only an hour and forty minutes this morning.

Stupid global warming.

As you may have heard we've been getting mucho snow here in Denver and the alley behind my house has not been plowed in 3 weeks. There are huge piles of icy ice covered in about 6 inches of packed snow so if you don't get enough momentum while backing out you're stuck. The other day my wife was in a bad spot and woke me up to say I'd have to dig the car out of a rut. I put on my sweat pants and a jacket, got behind the wheel, and with some rockin' and fancy steering had her out and ready to roll in about 30 seconds. Came inside and went back to bed. TAKE THAT, MOTHER FUCKING NATURE!!!

That's right. I made sure to laugh at my wife and tell her that she was too emotional to handle such things. Then I tore my shirt off and told her to make me breakfast. ;) :p

I bet that breakfast tasted so damn sweet.

The weather here has been insane. It's getting nippy out now, but last night around three in the morning, I'm outside and it feels like mid 60s. I was tempted to throw on some gym shorts and get a pick up game. No wonder everyone's getting killed around here. It's like a Summer of Sam type syndrome. The world is going to go bat shit bozo looney tunes. The human mind cannot withstand constant forty degree drops and rises in temp. It's unreal.

I only worry about snow and the cold when my automobile has a carburetor.

That's impressive. I hope they salt for the ride down.

I'm currently in northern Ontario on a remote First Nation. It was -44°C (not including the wind chill) this morning.

What is that? The metric system? Speak English, Canadian! :D

It's fucking cold is what it is. -44° Celsius = -47.2° Fahrenheit.
