snow and snow owls

2014-01-24 - 8:40 a.m.

No snow or sleet in Mandeville, at least not to my knowledge. Apparently someone saw some snow at Mississippi state line. It's a good thing DH was able to come home last night.

However, I just saw that the Causeway was closed due to ice, and he didn't come back home, so I wonder how he got to the office. They say there's sleet in Slidell so it could be a two hour trek to get down to Harahan.

They're calling it Sneauxmaggedon in Baton Rouge, where they did have snow and the city is closed off because all the roads are closed by ice. Stay home if you can, people.

The entertaining thing about this Bitcoin is that unknown persons can drop coin into your account. And, in fact, some unknown person just did so, as DH found out when he got back. The localroger fandom is pretty cool.

A Snowy Owl stopped a short distance away from a tree near the White House. I wonder if Obama saw it. I'm sure the Secret Service saw all the birders standing around with cameras pointed at a bare tree branch!


The DC snowy owl is still around.
