Deep Purple, Smoke on the Water


The water is snow on the roof and the smoke is coming out of the chimney. We are once again, for the fourth consecutive week, buried in Boston. I feel bad for people in the purple zone, with up to 24″ of new snow. We’re in the magenta zone, which is bad enough, with more than a foot added to the 4-5 feet we already have. The only upside is we won’t have to worry about a drought this summer, but the catch is the springtime melt will keep the sump pump busy.

So cold

7:30 on a Saturday night and I’m going to bed without any dinner. I wouldn’t be able to taste it anyway. Stupid cold.

Follow-up: And here it is, 5:30 AM on Sunday, and I’ve been up for nearly an hour. I”m still suffering, but less than I was last night. Today’s news is from Saugerties, New York, home of Joe Sinnott and family, and it was where Jimmy Fallon grew up. It was also where Jim Henson’s son John lived, who died there of a heart attack on Friday.
