further data

* the rabbits are clearly shitting themselves over the
storm
  * literally. i have never seen so much rabbit shit in
my life
   * shit, i have a flashlight but i've not been
using it
    * do i look at my shoes and confirm what i
already kind of know so it bothers me less
      * i look anyways and there's mud and
snow and good enough i'll just pretend i dodged a bullet

i went out for a wok, carefully timed. this felt like one of
those situations where you could go out and get the feeling
like you're the last person in the world. i was right;
timing was perfect. no people at all; barely any cars. any
cars i do see just kind briefly pop out of a side street and
then disappear, kind of like how you'll spot a mouse outside
sometimes.

it's snowing, but it's wet, and it's mostly just more melted
than stuck. or, well, concrete... concrete does not do well
here. it can't expand and contract like asphalt, and so the
water will get in cracks and tear it up. till the late 90s
we had loads of dismal concrete teeth-rattlers; a legacy of
whitey bulger and the mafia. not kidding

i've also noticed it seems to just soak up the water, full
stop. so the asphalt, it's dusting it lightly... but the
concrete, rainy show has soaked into it, and so it is
slippery, while the asphalt is not... or is the specific
heat of concrete... no, shit, i can't go look that up. i
could be up until 3am reading about materials science on
wikipedia

and i still have a few more things to accomplish before we
get into the time where electricity loss might be possible
-- on the note of specific heat, my fridge is stuffed with
like 60 bottles of water. buys you more time if the power
goes out

*logs into twitter in 2009*

> What's going on?

EpicMegatrax is currently swiffering a soupy mixture of snow
and rabbit shit off of his kitchen floor.

*logs off*

i think the wind is actually much more than 25mph, but the
web site simply doesn't expect values that large and so the
wind chart graph looks like it confidently went into
hyperspace, into a concrete ceiling

honestly tho for all the geeking out on metrics... so far
it's just snowing, steadily. and still snowing. still
snowing. now let's add some wind

i'm concerned -- mostly -- about the [mostly] dead tree with
branches all about the power and comms lines, few houses
down the street.
