So here it is, the myth of ground hog day. Somme yet to this day people are convinced that whether that rodent sees his shadow or not has any ability to predict weather at all. The same people bitch if a scientifically generated forecast is off by a bit. People don’t seem to realize how complicated the weather and atmospheric interactions are. As for the ground hog, shot that fucker and cook that rodent for supper!
Seeing the snow outside made me think of my brother growing up. When ever it snowed he’d be gone all day shoveling snow. Really He was always finding a way to make money. Eventually I went off on his own starting his own business, Rick’s Expert Tree Service. Of course they still do snow removal now when we have weather like this. Every time I think of how so many business owners do the bare minium I can I think of how they are always working.
I was remembering what the internet was like in the 90s the other day. Back then pages were about things someone was interested in instead of how to game the system to get to the top of google or have the most ads and ad clicks. Fuck SEO! There were still shitty site back then but there were so many interesting ones too. Dial up though was slow and inconsistent. Whenever you were downloading something big you or someone else would pick up the phone.
