I need this

So much, I should probably figure out how to make this post sticky. Or maybe I should just add the link to my blogroll.

In any case, here are Links and Resources for the Chronically Disorganized.

Story time

The Big Guy points to a time-travel story in Wiki format. That puts me in mind of this fantasy story in blog format.

As a related aside, here’s a short film on a similar subject.

Precipitous local cooling

Friday, May 2nd, 2008

I personally believe that “global warming” is hystrionics, and likely politically motivated. I also realize that the plural of anecdote is not “data” (more people should be aware of that, in my opinion).

However, anecdata can be fun. Wednesday, the temperature here in Denver reached 81. Yesterday, we had the following visible from my office:

Snow at work 1Snow at work 2

Those were taken about 8:20am. The snow kept falling until noon, in my area. Today, the mountains are again snow-covered, but the snow here has gone, except on north-facing slopes where it’s been shaded.

Springtime in the Rockies means temperature swingtime in the Rockies, I guess. This really isn’t that unexpected; the average data of last frost in Denver is May 20th.
