The perfect (snow) storm

I was never a big fan of winter weather, having had plenty of that when I was growing up on the prairies of South Dakota. (!) Nevertheless, there is something to be said for occasional blasts of brisk, wintry weather. In that sense, the snowstorm we had last night was just about perfect: Everything was coated in a blanket of white, with brilliant sunlight in the morning, helping to melt the snow off the streets. It was only about three inches deep, causing minimal disruption (except in the public schools), and we should be able to return to our regular routine by tomorrow.

This (or that) year's
blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
