So it’s snowing here. Imagine that. Now I’m not a huge fan of snow but I do like looking at it… I also like not being in it. That’s a good place to be. However, I forgot that when we get precipitation of any sort here, it goes on like mad for a number of days.

Just this semester we had a solid week of rain. We only had one day of serious rain of course, but the days leading up to and away from that day were drizzly and gray (on a side note, this is the week I was told that the solar winds cause our winds – this brought my points up by a gazillion I feel).

This is all fine and dandy if you work from home or live in a town that is entirely connected by interbuilding tunnels, but if you have to drive, walk, run or catch a bus to anywhere… well it’s a little dismaying.

Especially if you don’t seem to make any body heat of your own.

    I maintain that it is less windy that when it is sunny…especially on mountains.  What other explanation do you have?

    It is not less windy when it is sunny. Sunniness often goes with the big winds like the Santa Ana.  Or at least I think so. But I think that sunniness is also not dependent on the sun’s being there.
    Well, I may have jumped into that without knowing what the conversation was. But I really like the idea of interbuilding tunnels. I think all otwns should have them. I see people (possibly masked) slinking along them from one building to another. Let’s work on that.
