Here's a simple card-counting FAQ to get you up to speed on the basics. Here's the true story of the notorious DD' blackjack team, told for the first time on the fabulous internets. No other team went from a starting investor's bankroll of zero to winning millions of dollars.

snow in hell 2014

2014-01-30 - 10:37 a.m.

I figured I better drag out the old phone and get some snow pictures before it all melts. Here's some of the remaining snow trapped in the tarp I have wrapped around the front satsuma tree.

Can you believe that there are still icicles holding my car to the driveway?

Our sago palm which came from the south shore and survived the huge snowstorm of Dec. 1989 caught some icicles as well as snowflakes. Come to think of it, I fell down and was badly hurt during that storm as well, since it started suddenly and we were out at Schweggmann's making groceries. I fell down on the ice when we walked out of the store. The truck gave out some moments later, although we did somehow get it home. What a mess!

They say sago palms don't survive weather like this but so far this one is a true survivor. I think it's less snow and more ice than in 1989. Of course it's older now so...time will tell.
