    Unseasonably warm in central Florida with temperatures in the mid 80's during the day. Neener, neener, neener!

    I saw an Australian movie on Hulu. A very violent one about a man getting revenge on the people responsible for the death of his daughter. Anyway, I noticed that they drive on the wrong side of the road in Australia too. I thought only England and Japan did that.

    That depends on which counter the clock's on.

    No, it's the EU and US that are on the wrong side.

    Meanwhile, if you want a great touristy movie to encourage you to visit, I'd suggest finding the movie Snowtown. Then realise it's a true story. Then realise that I work with the son of the Detective in charge of the operation, who's said that the movie just scratches the surface of what actually happened...

    We had quite a bit of snow in the Cleveland area, though I've driven in worse. I managed to blast out of the driveway, and on the freeway hit 50mph until I caught up with the people who were to afraid to be on the road. Took two hours to make a 24 minute drive... because of the idiots on the road.

    I work at a university, and when the skies and roads are clear, but the temperature is below zero, they close. When the temps are above zero but the roads are dangerous, they stay open. Go figure.

    Fortunately, they let us go at 3:00 today. When I got home I tried to blast in the drive (with a running start) but got stuck; and it's a full-sized car. At least I was out of the street. Got out the snow blower, and then pulled the rest of the way in. By the time I was done, it was the time I'd normally have gotten home, so I gained nothing. Oh well.

    The NWS gridded forecast for my exact house location is calling for +9F tonight. And with ~20-mph winds that works out to about -10F wind chill.

    Sucks to be me, I guess...

    I bet it was warmer for the 700,000 or so fans at the Seahawks Parade today in Seattle
