Apocolypse Not

Not only did my mouse die, but my browser has become unstable. It has shut down for no apparent reason four times recently. I fear that Sluggo's spirit has somehow taken over this computer. Maybe it's because I'm using his mouse. I really need a whole new computer, now that it appears that the world will not be ending just yet. I'm not sure just when the end was supposed to arrive, though. Was it midnight last night, or midnight tonight? Was it Greenwich time or Yucatan time?

Whenever it was, at least I'm not yet buried in snow. Even though the afternoon felt colder than the morning, the snow turned first to slush and then to rain, and now the couple of inches that fell has mostly been washed away, except along the road verge where the plow truck piled a pair of long heaps. There's still a layer of snow all down my driveway, but it's very thin. It will probably turn to ice overnight, and tomorrow morning when I go to fetch the newspaper I will slide into the street and be hit by an oncoming car that can't stop because it will be driving on black ice. Ah, well.

There's still more snow predicted for tomorrow, but it won't be falling onto much of an accumulation. I'm hoping it will turn to rain again, and that I'll be able to go shopping on Sunday as usual, though if that car hits me I might be wearing a cast or two. I'm going to need food for the cats, so I have no choice but to shop. If they go unfed, I'm sure to end up being devoured myself, so I'll be dead apocalypse or not. What a world!

Edit: Oh, and I hope everybody had a nice winter solstice. Longer days at last!
