    I broke out the parka for the first time in two years.
    The fake xmas tree is still sitting outside my door in its box because it's been to crappy to lug it to the storage area.
    The super still hasn't come to take out my broke down old school tv out to the dumpster.
    I had to by an ice scraper.

    Today was a balmy 45F out

    Its been so cold this winter that I almost had to wear long pants to walk my dog.

All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    It has been so (un)-cold... that the dog has begun shedding her winter coat two months early....
    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone

    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    Yes. I pondered this fact this morning when deciding what to wear to the office today. I wore pants.

    What is this winter you speak of? We actually had a couple of nights were the temp dipped into the 20's . Currently, it's in the 70's. As for the flowers, we've had them out all the time.
