  • asombra: Don’t worry. Castro, Inc. knows what it’s doing, and it knows its public.

  • asombra: Either these people are pitiful idiots or they think everyone else is.

  • asombra: Because, you know, Reuters cares SO much about Cubans, so it really “feels their pain.” Just like Clinton did.

  • asombra: Well, at least Batista didn’t run around in military garb, which he was more entitled to do than either Castro tyrant.

  • Humberto Fontova: This libertarian, scam-artist, cult-leader (but I repeat myself) then uses copyright laws to silence his competitors!!!...

I wanted to post a photo of my elf and flamingo totems, but they are now totally buried.  The elves light up in the dark, and about two hours ago, only the tops of their heads were still visible.  I couldn't get very close either.   So, there they are, looking like UFO's, or distant galaxies.

Yeah.  It's still snowing -- about 2 inches per hour -- and it will keep snowing till daybreak.  We had a burst of 5 inches per hour.   I can't get an accurate measure of how much we actually have because the drifting is too intense.

Here's my van.

I have never seen a snowstorm like this one.  The sound of the snowflakes beating against the house is louder than that of raindrops in a heavy downpour.  I went out with my son Bruno during one of the heavy bursts and it was actually painful.  The flakes were hitting us horizontally at 30 miles per hour.

The forecast calls for somewhere between 2 and 3 feet before it's all over.   And, yeah, we've had thunder too.

This is heaven.  Here's the view out of my front door.

Yeah.  Eat your heart out, Floridians, Californians, and Louisianans.   Here's the driveway.  I gave up shoveling four hours ago.
