I saw a fellow in shorts yesterday. He looked like a boating type wandering back down to the canal. I daresay they're a hardy breed. Although he won't be cruising far on account of the canal is frozen solid.

Here we've getting snow every few days--about four inches fell last night.  But what surprises me is this weird fashion of wearing shorts and sandals with a giant puffy snow coat...go figure

I got called into work today - half an hour before the person I was covering was supposed to start their shift  Cheesy I said to the lass who called "You've got half an hour to see if she turns up", there was some off-phone chatter, then she said "Yeah I know, but she's not here" confused so I went in, and she didn't turn up haha I think I entered some weird time dilation

I live in sunny San Diego, California and I don't even wear shorts and sandals in the slightest bit of rain much less snow (not that we get snow outside of the eastern mountains).  Those people must be a few tacos short of a combination plate.   scratch

Woop!  My copies of Shock Totem have literally just turned up!  Thanks Ed and Ken  afro they're beautiful things indeed.

Also working on a very short Lovecraftian piece today, to see if I can a) write something effective and b) write something quickly to sub to a particular market (whilst adhering to point a haha).  Got a friend come round really soon for a catch-up and a cuppa, and then off to band practice with my apocalyptic doom band  cool just watching the snow drift past my bedroom window for a bit first, with a bit of midnight jazz on in the background...very relaxing!
