Well, here we go again! Although not a blizzard this time and, hopefully, not enough to shut down the county (I do not live in Baltimore City), I am sure the local residents will provide some interesting sights.
I hope Frying Pan Man is ready!

Blizzard commentary, Part 10:
It looks like Bucket Man realized quickly he was on the Titanic and the little red bucket wasn't going to work. He was kind enough to assist Frying Pan Man who has reached the end of his pointless endeavor. Between the two, they managed to get the car out of the driveway and onto the restricted parking lane. Why is it restricted? Because that is where the ground crew keeps their supplies. So now Frying Pan Man has now virtually blocked access to the shed where the road salt, shovels, snow blowers, etc. are kept. I have a feeling the next time the boys plow the drive that a lot of snow is going to make it's way onto the back of Frying Pan Man's car.

+Johnny Lambert - people that aren't watching are missing a damn good show! And now we have Capt. Teach joining. What a fantastic intro he had! That shot of him talking to his "visitors" where we saw just his eyes in the mirror was amazing - personification of evil!

Blizzard commentary, Part 8:
Oh, my! Yet another effing idiot enters! This time it's Grumpy Basement Man - the not-so-nice man who lives in the apartment on the bottom level in our building. He drives this big SUV truck kind of thing (compensating much?) and annoys the hell out of everyone with his take-two-spots parking. Where did he think he was going? You have almost two feet of snow in front and you know what that means? Yes, sliding! Yes, BROADSIDE into the car parked next to you! So let's not slam into that little white car once - how about FOUR TIMES? Then he gets out and checks to make sure HIS VEHICLE IS OKAY. He barely glanced at the car he hit. I think I'll let my neighbors know what happened - and show them the video I was taking.

Start here, it gets better......

He grasped me firmly, but gently, just above my elbow and
guided me into a room, his room. Then he quietly shut the door and we were alone. He approached me soundlessly, from behind, and spoke in a low, reassuring voice close to my ear. "Just relax." 
Without warning, he reached down and I felt his strong, calloused
hands start at my ankles, gently probing, and moving upward along
my calves, slowly but steadily. My breath caught in my throat. 
I knew I should be afraid, but somehow I didn't care. His touch was so experienced, so sure. When his hands moved up onto my thighs, I gave a slight shudder, and partly closed my eyes. My pulse was
I felt his knowing fingers caress my abdomen, my ribcage. And then, as he cupped my firm, full breasts in his hands, I inhaled sharply. 
Probing, searching, knowing what he wanted, he brought his
hands to my shoulders, slid them down my tingling spine and into my
Although I knew nothing about this man, I felt oddly trusting and 
expectant. This is a man, I thought. A man used to taking charge. A man not used to taking 'No' for an answer. A man who would tell me what he wanted. 
A man who would look into my soul and say . . 
"Okay ma'am, you can board your flight now."

The official snowfall results are in and my town got....26"! It will be interesting to watch the grounds crew (wonderful guys that they are!) deal with the snow - and where they will dump it!

Blizzard commentary, last part:
Now that darkness has fallen (along with more than enough snow - and more still coming), I look back over the events of the day and wonder, once again, "Why are men in charge?" The award for the day must go to that intrepid adventurer. The man who was bound to move his car somewhere, anywhere, just as long as it was moved (which it was after several hours and now is in a very bad place). Yes, it's him! It's FRYING PAN MAN! Remember, kids, if you don't have a shovel a nice 12" Teflon skillet will do!

Blizzard commentary, Part 9:
Well, Frying Pan Man has returned  - and he has a SHOVEL! Why he bothered I have no idea. His now vacant parking space is filled with piling up, drifting snow so he has no place to park. He has successfully moved his car! Unfortunately, he moved backward down the hill and is not only blocking our drive but also the lower part of the loop. He's determined to go somewhere. No idea where the hell he's going but, dammit, he's going!
And another contestant has entered. An enterprising man who is going to dig out his auto - with a LITTLE RED BUCKET! Good luck, little man! Your car is in the first parking space and you haven't thought this through, have you? Your car is directly being hit by the drifting snow with nothing to stop it. So as much as you are "bailing out" the snow, you are going to have just as much when the snow finally stops. Guess you just needed to get some arm exercises done today?

Blizzard commentary, Part 7:
Snow Kicker gave up and went back inside. Surprisingly smart move for a man. I guess when he realized kicking the snow, stomping the snow down, and trying to shovel with a LITTLE RED SNOW SCRAPER wasn't going to work, he started to think twice. I guess maybe at the point he tried to back out of his spot for 15 minutes and didn't move an inch was where his little brain started to realize, "Why am I trying to back up? I'm not going anywhere!"
Meanwhile, Frying Pan Man has totally abandoned any attempt at moving his car. He has lifted his windshield wipers in an "I give up!" signal to others who are, perhaps, wondering why this fool is parked in the middle of the driveway

Awful! This was the first time trying pizza from Serpico's and it is definitely the last time! Browned crust on the bottom and soggy dough on the top. Whoever cut this pizza needs lessons, too! One slice had an edge of about 2", another about 5", another 8" - so pathetic! I am sorry I wasted money on this crap - never again!

Outstanding staff that treat your pet and you with the utmost care and compassion. Both Dr Edward Jendrek and Dr Andrew Jendrek have looked after my pets for many years now and I will continue to turn to them when my cats need attention. Both father and son provide skilled care and offer solutions based on a wealth of animal knowledge. I trust all of them without question - and, apparently, so do my cats. My five-year old male cat had been suffering with a severe urinary infection. In obvious distress, he was hiding under the bed or on top of the cabinets - places he goes to when he is stressed. He was, again, having a problem so I called and made an appointment for the next morning. I awoke wondering how I was going to get him from his refuge spots when I discovered he was already in his carrier, ready to go. My cat instinctively knew the carrier means vet, and the vet means help, If he places that kind of trust in the kind and wonderful people at Carney Animal Hospital, you should too!
