I would like to begin with a reading from The Book Of Nebraska Weather
, on the topic of tonight's weather:
Tonight: Snow, freezing rain, and sleet, becoming all snow after midnight. Some thunder is also possible. Steady temperature around 23. North northwest wind between 8 and 13 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. Total nighttime ice accumulation of 0.1 to 0.3 of an inch possible. Total nighttime snow and sleet accumulation of 2 to 4 inches possible.
For those of you who dwell in warmer climes, 'sleet' is like freezing rain, only more so. And it really did thunder this evening. While sleeting. It was very exciting, and I interupted my dinner preparations more than once to dash to a window to see what was happening now
Meanwhile, am running around in circles. Am behind at work, thanks to being sick and being short a night baker. Am not finished unpacking, so I haven't found the cotton yarn I need to crochet the potholders my mom wants for Christmas. Nor have I found my cookbooks, which snarls both my plans to make caramel (how can I make caramel without the Joy of Cooking, I ask you?) and the apricot honey butter I want to make for my dad. Haven't even begun to think about doing/getting things for the other people who I wanted to give things to. (Though, admittedly, this is where being Catholic is an advantage to me, as I know that Christmas does not actually end until the Feast of Epiphany. I have more than a week after the 25th!) There are other things bothering me, but if I write them all out I'll just get shaky, so that won't do.
In the meantime, I have something cool to look at. AEG is planning on releasing a L5R graphic novel, and the brand manager recently put up a page from the novel up as a teaser. Any interested parties should click here
for a look-see.
