Well, we've been hit by the Winter Storm of 2010, just as much of the midwest and eastern seaboard has. Since this part of North Carolina doesn't see a lot of snow these days (thanks, Global Warming!) it is viewed by the weather weasels with alarm bordering on hysteria. Bread, milk, and beer sail out of the grocery stores; when we visited the Bi-Lo last night, all of the carts were in use and we hand to hunt to find an empty one.

Outside just now I saw some robins hopping around in the snow, no doubt thinking, WTF is up with this? They are in the area now as they transit north, but I guess that they'll have to re-think their decision to head north so early.

We're all snug and buttoned up here; I'm in a jacket because Sara doesn't like paying high electric bills. No worries; we have flannel sheets on the bed and we're both high in body fat, so we'll survive the Snowpocalypse.

Update: Here's a shot from through the front door of Sara's condo:
