Snow in Corning! It was January 28, 2002, when last it snowed here. Here
is RAMMMMM in the snow! Click to enlarge.

Ice! There was ice on Mr. Nitro's windshield this morning. It was cold last night, apparently. The ice was thin, and only a brief run of the defroster and a few swipes of the wipers was necessary to remove it. The weather forecast for the next several days looks very promising: Lows of 37-38 degrees and highs of 59-62 degrees are expected.

I dreamed last night that I looked at my watch and declared that it was 6:30 AM and time for me to leave for the office. Laura said, "No. It is noon. You are very late!" I looked at my watch more closely and saw that it was upside-down on my wrist. It was, in fact, noon.

This dream is particularly odd, since I do not own a watch. I arrived at my office at 6:30 AM, however.
