Just an fyi

We're scheduled to have storms and showers all afternoon and evening. This tends to make my internet behave in a stupid fashion. So I may not be around.

Maybe I'll do housework. Or update my fanfic. Or rescue Princess Ruto from Lord Jabu-Jabu's belly.

Also, I've been investigating the details of the two new Zelda games as well as looking at promo art for the new Metal Gear game (thank you [livejournal.com profile] saphrawn for being my crack dealer). My geek senses are tingling.

It's raining again.

On the up side, we (and by we I mean myself, Kevin, and Andy, who wandered over after work) got the entire lawn mowed before it started. No more backyard jungle. After Kevin and I cleaned ourselves up, we took Andy to supper at the pizza buffet, which he'd never tried. He declared the food way decent, and the portions are exceptional given the price.

On the down side, internet connection is wholly unreliable. I don't want to sign into AIM because I'll be apologizing constantly for getting kicked off. Better I lurk in the shadows, reading my flist and email and meanwhile playing Link's Crossbow Training. I only need to improve my level one score by 2,000 points to qualify for a silver medal. (How the hell do people earn gold and platinum? I mean, apart from the presumption that they've got, you know, two eyes.)

Kevin's already gone to bed. My old man is old.

From weather.com:

Rain will be winding down across the Southeast as a major, and historic storm, begins to pull away. The storm produced some early season and record-setting snow across parts of southeast Texas, southern Louisiana and southern Mississippi. Up to 9 inches of snow fell northeast of McComb, Mississippi. Snow showers fell in Houston, New Orleans and Gulfport and sleet covered the ground in northwest Alabama. Snow showers may fall overnight across the southern Appalachians. The good news is that heavy rain fell across the drought-stricken areas.

The storm will affect the Northeast overnight into Friday. Look for significant snow from south-central New York and the western Mohawk Valley, through the Adirondack Mountains, to northern New England. Snow should mix with and change to sleet and freezing rain in northern New Hampshire and northern Maine as warmer air moves in aloft. Snowfall totals, where precipitation remains all snow, may range from 10 to 15 inches with locally higher amounts.

Elsewhere, freezing rain will fall from southeastern New York through Albany, southern Vermont, western Massachusetts northwest Connecticut, southern New Hampshire to central Maine. Freezing rain may mix with sleet or even snow at times. Significant ice accumulations of one half inch or more are likely leading to power outages and downed trees. Mixed preciptation should change to snow by Friday morning as colder air moves in but amounts will be light.

Heavy rain is already falling from Maine to Virginia with 2 to 3 inches of rain possible by Friday afternoon. Flood watches are in effect for most of these areas.


It's been pouring for two days straight, and tonight it's all going to turn to ice. I can imagine going to work in the morning will be all sorts of fun; I just hope Kevin comes home soon.

Heh. The snow is coming down now; the elementary school dismissed ten minutes ago. According to weather.com, it's "cloudy."

But elsewhere on the site it says this:

------------------------------------------------------

LOW PRESSURE FROM THE TENNESSEE VALLEY WILL MOVE NORTHEAST... REACHING PENNSYLVANIA TONIGHT BEFORE HEADING EAST OFF THE COAST WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON.

THE WEATHER SYSTEM WILL BRING WINTRY PRECIPITATION TO THE REGION THIS AFTERNOON INTO WEDNESDAY.

SNOW WILL DEVELOP THIS AFTERNOON AND CONTINUE EARLY THIS EVENING BEFORE CHANGING TO FREEZING RAIN AND SLEET BY MIDNIGHT. THE FREEZING RAIN WILL THEN CONTINUE INTO EARLY WEDNESDAY MORNING BEFORE CHANGING TO PLAIN RAIN BY LATE MORNING. TOTAL SNOW ACCUMULATION OF 1 TO 3 INCHES IS FORECAST WITH 1/2 INCH OF ICE ACCUMULATING AFTER THE CHANGEOVER TO FREEZING RAIN.

THE ICE WILL ACCUMULATE ON TREES AND UTILITY LINES. WIDESPREAD POWER OUTAGES ARE POSSIBLE.
------------------------------------------------------


Needless to say, I'm glad Kevin is off today; I wish he were off tomorrow too. It's starting to stick to the ground now.

At least I know dinner tonight will be good. Mom gave us a frozen four-pound turkey breast, so Kevin's going to bake that this afternoon, and we'll have corn and green beans and mashed potatoes. Tomorrow I think I'll make beef stew in the crock pot; it'll keep until whenever he gets home.

The police chief will be coming over sometime either today or tomorrow to listen to CBL's voice mail. It's not particularly harassing by itself, but it goes to establish pattern. More than anything, I hate how much this bothers me. I hear her voice and boom, my blood pressure is up. I would recognize her voice anywhere for that reason.

We're in a winter storm watch. Assuming the weather comes to pass as they predict, it will start rain-snowing sometime tomorrow morning and continue throughout the entire day and overnight into Wednesday. Layers upon layers of rain, snow, freezing rain, ice, and sleet. FUN! I told Pastor that if it's really nasty on Wednesday morning, I'm going to take the day off. Except for paid vacations and funerals, I've taken off all of two days since I started working here, so he has no problem with this.

Am distracting myself from CBL's villainy by working on The Secretary Project. She should be flattered, she got her own entry.

It's lunchtime and I think I smell grilled cheese. I hope I do, anyway, because I've been craving it. Which may be a sign that I play Sims more than is healthy...

Most of PA and NY are bracing for possible snow.

My area, not so much; we're in a flood watch. Basically, the nasty weather which is currently pounding the southeastern states is going to make its way up here, but there's a cold front coming in from the north which will turn some of the heavy rain into wet, heavy snow. The county directly north of mine is in the winter storm watch zone, and as weather.com puts it, "the track of the storm is yet uncertain." So we could get a ton of rain or we could get snow, it could go either way.

It's the middle of April! o_O
