Well That Was A Bit Under-Whelming

We only got about 8″, about half of what we were *guaranteed* to get just a few hours prior. Now don’t get me wrong: if they’re going to blow a forecast this is definitely the direction I want them to screw it up in.

But it does make me hope that someone somewhere will stop just for half a second a think that, just perhaps, if all the billions of dollars of fancy equipment and thousands of PhDs focused on the weather can’t get it right for TOMORROW then maybe they sorta kinda maybe shouldn’t be so 100% sure that they can declare with Absolute Consensus what’s going to happen over the next 100 years.

I am personally thankful for this mistake, however, as it allowed me to have this for breakfast


before I went out and cleaned off the cars, driveway, and sidewalk.

    Bingley, Bingley, did you survive?! Speak to us!
    I’m glad the storm wasn’t as bad as predicted. Meanwhile in L.A. we got about 1/2 ” of rain and everybody panicked…

    Ah, you included the anti-freeze while breaking your fast. Well done, sir, well done!

    Why so little bacon?

  5. Kathy Kinsley says:

    And why so little eggs (not that it doesn’t look delicious, but…)?

  6. Mr. Bingley says:

    Well I did cook a whole pound of bacon, but I did have to sample a lot of it just to make sure it was acceptable. oh and I did share some with my Bride. as for the eggs, we only had 4 left 🙁 so that’s all I scrambled up in the bacon fat.

    Mmmm… “bacon fat”…. Is it getting warm in here?

    Bacon grease is one of the fundamental building blocks of the universe.

    Only 4? OK, you are forgiven – but buy more before a storm next time! 😛
