Still snowing here. Probably close to 3 feet. I am deploying my daughters and dog to shovel while The Wife and I work. Send rum!

LoL. My wife would tell you the same thing about me....but, of course, its not true!  :2funny:

I once accused my wife of having a man cold.  5 days later, she and my daughter  both tested positive for the flu.  Such is karma!

Hope the whole family is feeling better soon, man.

Sending my St. Bernard with the rum right now Gus. He's a little cross-eyed so it may take him some time to find you.  #:-)

I can't blame him, as the snow is three feet deep and hides my lawn-gnome form pretty well. I can hack it until he gets here. No joke this was a storm for the ages...Top 5 for me, personally.

I'm pretty sure I've never seen 3 feet of snow all at once.  Even in Iceland.

Do you have a snorkel?

Weird weather.  There has been almost no snow at all in my corner of Canuckistan this winter.  I think it's only snowed twice and there wasn't enough to stick either time.  It's just been insane amounts of rain for almost 3 months.

Hope you're feeling better soon JH.

I myself in 7 days get to go back to Green Bay for my 2nd shot of the Moderna vaccine. I even requested off the next day because that one's gonna be a bear from what I've heard. The 2nd dose is stronger than the 1st.

Thanks, CJ. My wife got the Pfizer vaccine and the second shot definitely wiped her out, but it wasn't too bad and only for about 24 hours.

Good luck and I am happy you are one of the lucky few!

Although this wasn't on my original weekend playlist I've been spending a good amount of time with Total War Shogun 2 FOTS.  Great game and I forgot how cool the setting is.

Yep. Great game. I still play it from time to time. There are some brilliant mods out there for it. Have you got the bayonet mod for FOTs - it looks really cool.

I can also recommend a couple of Samurai movies set in the period to add to your Samurai mood, both with good sword fighting scenes...

It was a matter of luck indeed. They had two extra doses when I was there, and I was asked if I wanted one.
