BLO SNO

Planet of the snowy animated apesThe sight of snow blowing practically sideways today was an interesting counterpoint to the impressive (and just a little bit scary) lightning show not even 24 hours earlier. Nothing’s really making travel impossible here, it’s just nice to look at. Anyway, it reminded me of the early days of the Weather Channel, when “blowing snow” as a weather condition was displayed by the automated local forecast gadget as:

…which I always found inordinately funny for some reason. 😆 Just one of those things. Obviously, their technology has moved on quite a bit, but if you, like me, are a sad enough geek that you actually pine for the Weather Channel’s less technologically advanced days, or, for that matter, a sad enough geek that you pine for anything involving the Weather Channel at all, visit this site – it’s kinda cool. And geeky and sad, all at the same time.
