Severe Weather Alert

Like our countrymen in the east and north, Las Vegans are reeling from the effects of global climate flip-flopping*.   Below is a picture of some of the disaster wreaked recently by Severe Weather™ in my usually happy, unsuspecting neighborhood.

That is ice on the sidewalk.   Ice!   Had I not been paying attention, I could have stepped in it and stumbled and perhaps fallen!

I shake my fist in futile rage at the serpent which has swallowed the sun.

All the while I pray fervently to enjoy the serpent's death once again this coming spring when the virgin hare splits the beast's belly and frees the light.

Assuming, of course, our sacrifices are acceptable and I don't fall and bust my noggin on some accursed ice, first.

*First Gore invents interporn, thus summoning Climate Change Succubi which he then taunts with his Incontinent Douche Movie.   Where will he stop???

Where will he stop???

He will stop when he, like Leonardo DiCaprio, is King of the World.

You know, when you post before Sir Scum, you are supposed to use the word "first" in your post somewhere.

Don't stop now I'm close!

Terd! You tell them Lavi...and "I heard you was dead."

Amazingly, I still have green tomatos on the vine. The vine is wasted and dying and the tomatos ripen when I bring them in...but I have them! The peppers (Jalapenos, Thai Red Dragons and Clownifornian Bells) are doing better but the cold weather has sapped their productivity as well. I just await the day I pick all of it. I still have a few small watermelons and some green onions that are past the picking stage too.

My peas (planted late September) and a late bonus of more gren onions and radishes are holding up but growing slow.

My late harvest will come this week or next when relatives visit.

WOOHOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! Christmas tomatos!!!

And welcome back Mr. Lavi.

Also, it was cold as shit the last few weeks with the wind. I have become accostumed to warmth much like a lizard.

I have been working North of town by the Apex Summit on I-15. Fuck me running! With the cold I started wearing a T-shirt, a flannel shirtand my leather jacket.

It was sort of cool to see snow on the mountains for a couple days though.

Scum, every time you post you become a different person.

We might have to meet someday.

Did you like the Blues Brothers mix?

The_Scum said...

The Blues Brothers mix was excellent. It was missing the 'Your women, sell them to me" scene but otherwise was great. I've seen the movie so many times my mind played the scene behind the soundtrack.

I wonder if I can get some pyschological help for that 'different person every time you post' deal.

Every now and then when your life gets complicated and the weasels start closing in, the only cure is to load up on heinous chemicals and then drive like a bastard from Hollywood to Las Vegas ... with the music at top volume and at least a pint of ether.

That, and the occasional ranting about nothing in particular.
