3,177 days...

Another few inches of snow last night. The temperature is supposed to rise to 42˚F today, so there will be a little melting, but it's going to freeze again tonight. And we have a winter storm watch in effect for Sunday and Monday, more snow. Whee. Winter finally arrived. Currently, the sky is overcast and it's 26˚F, with the windchill at 8˚F.

Yesterday, I got my shit together and wrote another 1,280 words on The Secret Project. As I said, when I reach 10,000 words, I'll tell you what this is.

About 4:30 p.m., maybe a little earlier, we braved the cold and had a miserable little expedition down the street, maybe half a miserable block. The sun was out, but it was 27˚F, with a 15˚F windchill. I have a few photographs, plus Hubero in the sun from later in the day and a shot from the front parlor after the snow had started up again last night (more words after all the pretty pictures):

We had left over crock pot five-legged baked chicken for dinner, with rice and Brussels sprouts, and then we played GW2, then watched the new episode of The Expanse. I really, truly am in love with this show. Miller and Amos are tied as my favorite characters, with Alex Kamal a close second. All three sexy, in different ways. And then I did some RP with stsisyphus, and then we watched two episodes from Season Three of That 70s Show. That was yesterday. Don't spend it all in one place.

Where does one acquire one of these five legged chickens? Also, do they taste different than normally legged chickens? Or, do normal chickens have five legs, and we just get the mutant ones? Inquiring minds must know

You'll have to ask Spooky. She won't tell me.

Nope. The same, just more.

That's a very good photoset. I especially like Hubero's stretch.

I have barely heard anything about The Expanse. (I live under a TV rock.) It's good science fiction?

I think so. And there's some stuff in Season One that a number of people found very reminiscent of my SF. It kinda is.

Fine; I'm interested.

Yep, still looks like suburban Siberia!

Hubero is clearly luxuriating in the sun.
