So, I try to explain to Janet who the three female characters are in Birds Of Prey, and she looks at me crosseyed like I was one of the guest characters on a show like it. The woman has no inkling of the social significance of science fiction! Oh, well.

It snowed another three inches overnight, and according to the local stations we will get another two or three tonight. It's definitely going to be one of those winters. It's already snowed more than three times the local average for the winter to date, and should handily break the season record. This could very well be an early indicator of the effects of global warming; the climate grows more and more chaotic as the energy level goes up. The two nor'easters we got in the last few weeks would have been pretty humungous hurricanes if they'd occurred in the correct season. My generation will probably miss the worst of it, but it's sure to be worse than interesting for those to come.

And with the current administration, it's not going to slow down any time soon.
