Normally I'd be rooting for it, but this is the worst possible time for a storm for me. I'm supposed to have one video project due monday and another due wednesday, and if I miss a day, there's a very real risk that I won't be able to finish one of them. I may end up sleeping at the studio tonight.

She sure as heck better leave the MU game alone. I mean I don't even want a miniature Katie in the upper right hand corner of my screen.

We're in a "Blizzard" out here.

I think it's the first one I've seen.
