The proof of the pudding is in the precipitation

If it wasn't for the city's Lite Brite, there'd be no visual evidence that it's December. Cthulhu, I was real good this year so where's my fucking snow?

Snow....Dude... you have a perverted sense of weather,

Rumor has it that the Canadians are busy whipping up a special present for your wintertime enjoyment. If you're smart you'll be putting in a few months provisions for its' arrival. Cthulhu has nothing on La Nina.

Randal Graves said...

sunshine, thanks, but if you embiggen, you can see the limitations (beyond my lack of compositional talent) in the point-and-click; clear up front, grainy as fuck in the back. I should ask Cthulhu for one of those fancy cameras.

Send your snow!

okjimm, how can someone who grew up in Wisconsinstan hate the white stuff so much? You just made Baby Bart Starr cry.

demeur, as long as we don't end up like those highwaymen on the way to Buffalo. One wants to get stuck *before* they leave the house.

It is precisely those of us who live in snow states who know of what we speak. The stuff is vile!

Tom Harper said...

You were outvoted by a bunch of other Cthulhu worshipers who prayed for a mild winter.

'I saw the heavens verminous with strange flying things, and beneath them a hellish black city of giant stone terraces with impious pyramids flung savagely to the moon, and devil lights burning from unnumbered windows'.

Only worse than no snow would be the black slime rain. Happy December :-)

Sherry, that was a masterful understatement.

Randal, I have about 10 tons of the awful white stuff I'd love to share. And that's just off the roof. A couple of days ago, one-third of the city's school buses got stuck in our snowbound streets. The city just broke loose with another $120,000 to clear them. If nothing else but as a taxpayer, be careful what you wish for.

Great photo! You should have it reproduced on velvet. :)

sherry, don't be such a Scrooge, Grinch!

tom, sure, it's more difficult sacrificing virgins to Yog-Sothoth in a blizzard, but that demonstrates true devotion.

susan, Ia, Ia and such. :)

SWA, don't be such a Grinch, Scrooge! And that's a fantastic idea. How many can I put you down for? :)

Chef Cthulhu said...

Quit asking me for snow. How 'bout some calamari instead.

Tengrain said...

Graves, you swine!

Have you no shame? Begging for *snow* on a blog? Has Nancy Reagan taught you nothing?!

It snowed in Columbus yesterday and last night.

In fact, it's snowing right now.
