This epic snowdrift greeted me when I got home from class today. We didn’t get much snow, but it was so windy that barely any covered the yard. It was 50°F yesterday. It was sunny with hardly any wind. I’m about to go to bed and it’s -6°F. Because of the wind, it feels Like -22°F.
(For non-US followers, that’s -21°C, and feels like -30°C because of the wind chill.)

Please note the forecasted windchills. Perhaps God is punishing us for hating on GLBTQ folks in Wyoming. The bill to ban discrimination based on sexual orientation/gender identity died in the Wyo. State House today. Maybe God is making it this fucking cold to match the hearts in Cheyenne.
As an atheist, I say God has nothing to do with it because there is no God. As a Wyomingite, I say if there was a God, I figure we’d have pissed him off by decreeing some of his creations are less than others.
Either way, layer up kiddos, it’s gonna be cold here.

Police: Man Used Bombs to Clear Snow

An Abington man is being charged with creating bombs at his former address in Abington after police had been told the man was blowing up snow banks to avoid shoveling the snow.

Abington Police Chief David Majenski said Leo J. Powers, 23, with a last known address of 45 Margaret Road, Abington, is being charged with threats to commit a crime and possession of incendiary devices.

After serving Powers with an emergency restraining order at a rooming house he was staying in on Washington Street in Abington, police learned Powers had a box of ammunition and a box with “some sort of powder” in it at his former address, according to Majenski.

According to Majenski, police were told Powers had devised a way to use the materials to blow up snow banks instead of shoveling the snow and had been doing it for some time.

This sounds rather stupid, and yet I suddenly want to make the snow drifts outside my house go boom.
