The view from the study window at this moment...

I don't remember which cartoon character uttered the famous "What a revoltin' development THIS is!" (Bugs Bunny? Foghorn Leghorn?) but that was my precise thought when I opened the blinds this morning.  It's still snowing, albeit very lightly, and the NWS out of ABQ sez we'll only get "a light dusting."  Like this:

It's also colder than the proverbial witch's mammary glands*.  All in all, not a good day.

It's always sumthin'.

* I'm slightly peeved at Weather Underground coz they've eliminated P-Ville and Cannon Airplane Patch as weather station choices.  That's why you see "Melrose Gunnery Range" above.


  1. I think that Sylvester the cat said it and yes, you are correct. This weather is a revoltin' development...................

    1. I googled it after I was half-caffeinated and the results are inconclusive. I find a LOT o' cartoon characters actually said that.

    1. Chester A. Riley.

    2. "Life of Riley" was the first hit when I did that google thing, Rob. I should have remembered that from my childhood, no?

  3. We aren't going to get THAT cold but...the chill is on its way. It should be 20 degrees colder tomorrow morning than it was this morning - with snow on the ground.

  4. How are the flamingos holding up? Or have they fled inside to enjoy the warmth of your bathroom? :)

  5. Kris: It looks like winter's a bit early, eh?

    Virgil: I caught the little bastards huddling by the front door yesterday morning; they've since returned to their posts.


Just be polite... that's all I ask.
