Am I the only one that thinks caucusing is a terrible idea?

Lord knows the media is excited about it, but I keep looking at the process and thinking, “Oh hell no.” I’m in Virginia – we have plain old primaries.  Regular polling place, regular voting hours, absentee ballots available and in-person absentee … Continue reading

What is the opposite of cabin fever?

I have to tell you about my boots…

The last pair of Timberland’s I had lasted me 8 years.  Then I couldn’t find the style again last year when I needed to replace them (other than a custom order) – so I got a pair of Steve Madden’s … Continue reading

It Finally Stopped.

Around 11:30 last night, the snow finally stopped.  All in all, I’d say we got in the neighborhood of 30 inches. Between my brother and myself, we were out there 13 times over the course of 35 hours.  Thank god … Continue reading

We really can’t function with snow here…

We’re getting some snow tonight – a warmup for the weekend I guess.  Not expecting more than an inch.  There might be a half inch out there now.  Got this from the county police: 28 crashes. Oh wait, an update! Make … Continue reading

This is how I know I am an adult…

The word “blizzard” does not fill me with the slightest bit of joy.  As of this morning, the National Weather Service issued a Blizzard Watch for my area for the weekend. I don’t hate snow – when it’s in reasonable amounts. … Continue reading
