Snow? Did someone say snow?

Where is Al Gore today, anyway?

325 PM EST MON JAN 26 2009
…WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 7 PM THIS EVENING TO 7 AM EST WEDNESDAY…
THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN INDIANAPOLIS HAS ISSUED A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY FOR SNOW…WHICH IS IN EFFECT FROM 7 PM THIS EVENING TO 7 AM EST WEDNESDAY. THE WINTER STORM WATCH IS NO LONGER IN EFFECT.
A PROLONGED PERIOD OF WINTRY WEATHER IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP AS A COUPLE OF WEATHER DISTURBANCES MOVE ACROSS THE AREA. ONE DISTURBANCE WILL BRING SNOW TO THE AREA TONIGHT…AND A SECOND ONE WILL BRING MORE SNOW TUESDAY AFTERNOON INTO EARLY WEDNESDAY MORNING. SNOWFALL AMOUNTS OF 2 TO 5 INCHES ARE EXPECTED FROM NORTH TO SOUTH IN THE ADVISORY AREA.

Well, it was enough to get me off my ass and get the snowblower running, at any rate. I had to put some gasoline stablizer in the tank before it would start. Which is odd, because supposedly the 2-cycle oil I put in the flippin’ gas had gasoline stabilizer in it. Guess I won’t trust that again.
At least I didn’t have to resort to starter fluid. Or to saying “fuck it” and trading up to a 4-cycle machine.
