It’s Snowy Deck & Patio Furniture Season
Christmas is over and back in its box in the attic. The jet stream is blowing hard across the Great Lakes and pummeling us with sub-zero wind chills and lake effect snow, arctic clippers and blowing down across Ohio and, this week, that newest hyperbolic wild weather phenomena–the BOMB CYCLONE (oh how the marketing brahs…
Festive Holiday Photos: Santa Dash
Festive Holiday Photos From Around the Internet. I’ve got a bunch of ’em I’ve saved to pummel you with this season–largely unsourced, their presence here larcenous but well-intentioned. Enjoy ’em until I get that cease and desist notice.

Monday Meme: Wiener Crash (with poem)
I’m thinking on this Monday Meme thing: how long can it last?

Pleasantly, the wienermobile is eminently meme-worthy….
Found Winter Photo: Michigan Winter Ford
I’ve had this happen before–one of the unexpected benefits of switching to an SUV from a pickup: no shoveling out the bed.
