The Mix

Laziness is the mother of invention. How many great breakthroughs resulted from lazy ass people coming up with an invention to save themselves the hassle of doing something unpleasant? To wit: A guy in Denver rigged up his two foot long remote control hobby car with a functional tractor shovel. When it snows less than 3 inches or so, he just stands at his window in his nice warm living room and pushes the snow off his sidewalks and driveway by remote control. Very niiiiiice....

• “The Great Winter of 07” continues here in Denver and parts of the Midwest. People here in town are actually starting to talk that way. Whenever people use a phrase like ‘The Great fill in the blank of fill in the year” it’s usually not a good sign.

Some cold pics of beautiful glaze ice in Nebraska from the recent mega storms.

• Funny vid. Is Bush the new Lincoln?

Those pictures are ridiculous. I've lived in California my whole life and have no place in my head for an ice storm like that.

Yeah, it's pretty amazing, isn't it? The only time I saw that kind of glaze ice in California was on top of Mt. San Gorgonio in the San Bernardino range--I climbed up there just after a snow storm and all the gnarled limber pines were covered with a couple of inches of glaze ice. With the blue skies behind the trees it was one of the prettiest things I've seen.
