In this post: Too much weather, plenty of “Columbo.”
Hello, people. It’s 9:30 Thursday night and I spent most of the day involved in a variety of routine activities. For instance, I: 1) made homemade Hanukkah and Thanksgiving cards for young relatives and old friends; 2) ordered a lot of Vitamin D capsules for Sam from Costco.com; 3) slept through Goodbye, My Fancy (1951) starring Joan Crawford and Robert Young; 4) kept an eye out for UPS because shitty weather is moving in and I don’t want today’s deliveries to get pummeled with hailstones; and 5) I can’t think of anything else. An explanation for #4 follows for your possible interest.
SHITTY WEATHER, EXPLAINED. It’s 76° outside as I write this post, but badass thunderstorms with heavy rain are closing in on the Dallas area right now (see the weather map below). They’re ushering in a cold front that will drop temperatures into the low 30s and deliver sleet all day Saturday and a SUBSTANTIAL ICE STORM on Sunday. The red star denotes Howdygram headquarters in Mesquite. If you zoom in, I’m the angry senior citizen in a gray robe who hates ice.
Amazon. We’re still working our way through the first season (1971).
Life is good. Eat more gefilte fish.
