I have seen no evidence of this state of emergency thus far but the entire parish -- and from the sound of it, most of the state -- is closed for the duration. No ice here and no snow either. Just some Yellow-rumps browsing on the lawn at twice their normal size...
The library is closed. I tried to download some books to my Kindle but my Kindle is broken again. Arghhhhh. I probably won't ever get another one. I have a Kindle app on my phone and will just have to figure out how to put the books there.
I should have just waited for the Youtube from Arctic Monkeys France but I stayed up last night to watch AM perform on Letterman. I haven't seen that show in years, so I was shocked at how bad it was. All old people's jokes. Are old people with insomnia the only people who watch late night TV on Monday night? Letterman should retire if you ask me, but maybe that's the only demographic left that watches broadcast TV. Impatient old people who can't even buy green bananas much less wait around a few hours for a Youtube video...
Anyway I thought AM might do their upcoming single, "Arabella," and that they might need an extra guitarist so Alex could do the sarcastic British drunk grandpa dance he does to that song and I knew Miles was there in New York so...but it was not to be. In the event AM did "Do I Wanna Know?" and Alex had to hold his own guitar and be content with making pouty faces and the Letterman viewers of the world were spared the sight of the Turner "Arabella" dance.
The connoisseurs of Alex awkwardness will have to be satisfied with the oopsy when Alex almost forgot to shake Letterman's hand.

Eek. I shouldn't have said anything because now I think the rain -- at least I hope it's rain and not the beginnings of sleet -- has started to come down. But I think it is sleet. Either that or very heavy raindrops.
I've never seen anything like it. I guess I can assume that we didn't get any mail. The box is frozen shut, and there are icicles hanging down off of it. Unbelievable the amount of sleet that has fallen...the middle of the sago palm has so many ice chips accumulated that it looks like several inches of snow in there.
