Uncle Pax's Almanac: 02/09/2010

Good Morning From Utopia, New Jersey and Boy Howdy we are getting ready for  our second snow storm in less than three days...the weather service is calling for an additional foot of the white stuff on top of this past weekend's event.  As always, you'll hear no complaints about this development on my part: bring it on, sez I!

On today's date in 1989 , a winter storm continued to bring rain and snow to southern California. Snowfall totals ranged up to 18 inches at Olancha, with three inches at Palmdale.

If today is your birthday, and you feel like doing a little bump and grind, well that's becuase you share the date with the late, great, Ms. Gypsy Rose Lee!

Today's obscure term is "off time jive" - care to venture a guess as to what that describes?

And in honor of the upcoming blizzard, the following quote: Advice is like snow - the softer it falls, the longer it dwells upon, and the deeper in sinks into the mind. - Samuel Taylor Coleridge 

No matter what the weather, here's wishing you a day full of clear skies and smooth sailing!

Darling if it ever really did snow in Los Angeles half of Beverly Hills would be snorting their driveways.

When I was a young, shy, little bit of a lass with big ears, I heard my neighbor say to her errant husband, "I's don't want no off time jive excuse, now where was ya!"
