What Blizzard?



The Great Blizzard of 2009 is thus far a complete bust. Threatened by our weather forecasters with up to 20 inches of snow, we have received approximately half an inch. For all the alleged scientific advancements in recent years, the forecasts were more accurate before they were driven by television ratings.

Last night we watched Carol's Journey, a film by Imanol Uribe (2007, Spanish with English subtitles). I am fascinated with the Spanish Civil War, and also with the post-Franco responses of Spanish film makers. If you are interested in an intelligent, beautiful film about childhood, family, and the loss of innocence, this film is very much worth your time.

WEATHER UPDATE--1:25 P.M. It is snowing quite steadily now. Perhaps we'll have our blizzard after all.

It's a blizzard down here in Kalamazoo. It's at least over knee-high, and still coming. Whiteout since yesterday.

To the north, Buffalo, New York, is getting steady snow -- over a foot at this point.

Good old Jamestown got less than an inch!
