Why Even Bother on Saturday?

A bold (or foolhardy) forecaster is saying there's a good possibility of snow on the floor of the Central Valley, Sacramento included, sometime next week. They haven't had more than traces of snow in Sacramento since 1942, so it would be quite an event. Snow there would certainly mean snow here as well, though not necessarily much more of it. The amount of snow here depends mostly on how long it keeps coming down, now how low it goes. I suppose I could tolerate a few inches of the stuff for a day or two, as long as we don't lose electric power.

It hasn't happened yet anyway, so I'll just go into denial. Chances are the guy's a crackpot anyway.

Oh, look! Project Gutenberg looks to be getting a bit off track. In addition to all those free e-books they're making available for download (36 books by P.G Wodehouse, for example-- he must have been careless with his copyrights), they've now got a bunch of public domain audio files. Among the classic works available, representing the best of Western Civilization in the early 20th century, Who Threw the Overalls in Mrs. Murphy's Chowder?

A couple of hours ago I was fighting to keep my eyes open. Now I fear the approaching dawn is making me wake up. I'm going to bury my head under the covers and try to reverse the flow of time.
