2012 Is Coming and I Have Proof...

This is the second year in a row that a small flurry has fell in Houston. Maybe it isn't the end of the world, just that hell is freezing over?

This was a joke, 2012 is just another year.

When I was traveling all other the country last year I saw more snow than I cared to ever see again. I even learned how to drive in it a bit. But most Houstonians have no idea how to act when one flake falls much less a flurry. For my own safety and well being I'm keeping my ride and my butt parked today. Give us a tropical storm and people will still be going 80 on the freeways; let one flake fall and that slows to 45.

We have been relatively warm here in southeast Ohio.

I parked my motorcycle in October in my father's barn, and I could have ridden it all November.

10 inches of snow in MA where I am, almost two feet on the Cape. A little early for this much snow, but nothing out of the ordinary.

We finally got about 2 inches yesterday, but nothing more.

Good enough for donuts in the parking lot though!
