in my dreams, I'm comets, ornate falling snow

WordPress’s post scheduling feature has been reliably fucking up lately. Let’s see if this one sticks.

Hugh linked to an NOAA winter storm warning in advance of New Year’s Eve’s snow showers (emphasis mine):

SNOW IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ACROSS MUCH OF EASTERN MASSACHUSETTS AS WELL AS RHODE ISLAND BETWEEN 7 AM AND 10 AM. SNOW WILL QUICKLY INCREASE IN INTENSITY AND FALL HEAVILY AT TIMES FROM LATE MORNING INTO THE AFTERNOON…WITH SNOWFALL RATES OF ONE TO PERHAPS TWO INCHES PER HOUR AND POSSIBLY THUNDER SNOW. VISIBILITIES WILL BE NEAR ZERO AT
TIMES. SNOW IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN TAPERING OFF DURING THE EARLY EVENING HOURS.

SNOWFALL ACCUMULATIONS IN THE WARNING AREA ARE EXPECTED TO RANGE FROM 5 TO 8 INCHES…WITH AMOUNTS POSSIBLY AS HIGH AS 10 INCHES ACROSS THE GREATER BOSTON AREA INTO NORTHEAST MASSACHUSETTS…
DEPENDING ON EXACTLY WHERE THE HEAVY SNOW BANDS SET UP

Silly NOAA. There’s only one heavy snow band that can bring the thunder:

I had a dream on Tuesday night that I saw Kyle Andrews live at the Paradise in Allston. I didn’t recognize him at first; I was just stepping indoors to see a rock show. There was a huge air hockey rink set up inside – big enough to play actual human hockey on. I clambered onto it and slid into the glass wall nearest the stage.

Then he started playing “Tennessee Torture Dream” and I had to cover my face in excitement, because I love that song so fucking much*. He was playing at about 3/4 the usual tempo so not everyone recognized it at first.

Of course you were there. Everyone was there.

Happy New Year, everyone.

A lot of folks devote their New Years’ Day weblog posts to resolutions they will keep for a month and then fail at. Long time readers of this site know that I spend most of my year failing at resolutions (ask me about my “four hour work week”), so I’m already ahead of the curve!

* In true dream logic, he wasn’t actually Kyle Andrews until he started playing this song.
