"If you don't like the weather, wait a minute...." - Blather. Rants. Repeat.
A Møøse once bit my sister ...
"If you don't like the weather, wait a minute...."
Or just drive a few miles.

This was our back yard early yesterday afternoon after the dusting of snow we got two nights ago. It was also after I'd slogged away about a half dozen cans of pin oak leaves:

Never mind a leaf blower, I commented at the time, what I really need back here is a zamboni.

This morning dawned much colder and windier than it had been while clearing that, but there was no new snow to reckon with.  Yet just over an hour away closer to where the kids are, the story was different. Here's a shot a Rochester TV viewer sent in from her yard one town over from Palmyra, which got some of the heaviest accumulations:

Emily said their apartment plow guys gave up halfway through their parking lot.  Needless to say, Cameron got the day off from working outside.  There are still plenty of people without power near there, and I think my office there closed as well, since I never heard a peep out of them.   Last I heard, it was bearing down on Binghamton, so when I finish this I'm going to check in with my sister and see how she's doing with it all.

Despite the lack of any of that here, it was still relatively quiet in my office today, as I think a bunch of people are taking the whole week off from work.

I am staying late myself tonight (hence the dinner-hour posting), waiting for documents for a closing, and I picked up a last-minute traffic court appearance for tomorrow night that is relatively quick and easy work, but that will keep me out until past 6 as well.  Wednesday, though, we are closing early and I am determined to stay away for the rest of the week after that.


Yesterday, I came in to get work done on one of those backlogged bankruptcies, and listened to the Bills game the whole time.  They wound up winning a fairly ugly-sounding contest with a lot of miscues and injuries, and I didn't miss a damn thing by not getting to see any of it on the TV.

Tonight, we hope to finish the DVD of Swiss Army Man, because when all else fails, there are farting wizards to lift your spirits. Among other things.


The latest plan (weather permitting, he reminds himself to say this time of year) is that the kids will be home with us for Thanksgiving night, going to see Cam's dad on Friday.  His mom has announced no plans and their intention is not to enable her by letting her coerce them into something last-minute.

We'll be keeping things much simpler than the Standard United Statesian Food and Football Orgasm™ that Eleanor has been witnessing from the store side of things for much of the past month and will have to endure well into the holiday itself.

Me? I'll be shoveling. Whether it'll be leaves or snow remains to be seen.
