Rubio 2016 not likely

I don't know if the HTML strikeout command will translate on the title bar, but I'll chance it.

A lot of people will say that Marco Rubio's sweaty, nervous, thirsty performance during last night's State of the Union Rebuttal may damage his 2016 Presidential aspirations.

But that wasn't the worst thing he did this week.

Earlier, Rubio was one of 22 Republican senators who voted AGAINST reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act. It seems that the GOP still hasn't learned anything from their devastating losses in 2012, and they stubbornly insist on continuing their "War On Women".

Here's a clue GOP: Refusing to protect women from violence is NOT the way to endear yourself to half of the voting population. Or even most of the other half of sane, fair, and compassionate male voters.

My guess is that halfway through his rebuttal, Rubio suddenly realized that millions of women were probably watching his performance.

No wonder he was so nervous!

Blizzard's over

Uh, yeah. And I wasn't even close with my predictions.

That's the National Weather Service amount. I guess we got lucky being this close to the water, which helped feed more moisture into Charlotte/Nemo/whatever it's called.

At least the snow blower held out until after we carved a path to the street. Then the drive belt broke! I've ordered a replacement from Sears, but it'll be about 10 days before it gets here.

Plus, we helped our neighbors next door and across the street. Good deeds seldom go unpunished, but we do them anyway.

Blizzard's here

But it's nighttime, so I can't take any pictures. We already had about 10" so far (11PMish), and they're still threatening us with 24-30".

But that's the weather forecasters, and we all know how hysterical they can be. We'll see how much we get.

Probably 24-30".

In the meantime...

...a baby penguin getting tickled!

Blizzard coming?

It's only 12 or so hours away.

We'll see if anyone is smiling this time tomorrow night!
