Suppose to get 12" of snow over the next two days. :D

Had to shovel twice today. About 14 inches (so far -- it's still falling).

Excellent skiing snow, though. Dry, dense powder.

It is better to go to snow rather than have it come to you :D

Snow is better than ice, still have about 1/2" of ice here.

I think we had a bit of rain here today, but I was downtown and there was no rain there. It's 81°F (27°C) right now, and will probably drop to 68°F (20°C) tonight.

All is green and lovely.

As in flu etc? Same time as the rest of the country/world because travelers bring it with them.

No, I meant when everything of a creeping or crawling nature is at its peak (excluding libs). I think it is spring when ants typically swarm, though possibly fall... I forget.

Raked another foot of snow off the roof (heavy stuff this time). That's about 3 feet in the past week. A couple of roofs have collapsed. I don't have to use a ladder to get on the roof anymore; I just walk up the pile. Another snowstorm on the way.

It's a year round issue here, but the peak would be mid-summer.

Mid-summer, good to know :)

That's been one of my concerns in considering job hunting there. I just don't want anything crawling in my bed, shoes or on my person.

*shudder*

Today was decent. Last couple or few days haven't been too bad. Snow coming tomorrow though with some unacceptable cold.

Either that or do some Summer camping, to depussify yourself. Most insects are your friends; they eat the bad insects and gobble up the nasty bacteria-laden stuff that makes you sick, such as dead animals and your shit and skin cells.

Centipedes are an issue here. No snakes, but we have giant centipedes.

Well, giant centipedes do kind of suck. :lol:

I've never been bitten by one, but I've heard it's quite painful.

Centipedes bite too?

I thought they were disgusting enough, now that I know they bite, its disgusting factor grew exponentially.

They bite, and have poison. Centipedes are #2 on my shit list of insects. #1 is this little green jumping one on Izu peninsula that takes out little chunks of your skin when they bite. When being bitten all night by them in a field, your legs will look that someone painted them red.

Have you mounted a centipede head yet?

Is that Izu Japan? If they aren't in HI, then I'll consider that a good thing :D

Who needs depussification now, ya pansy :P

If they don't bite, then I don't care. Brown recluse have a nasty bite, and I think I had a black widow in a window well last year.

Ya, Japan. It's the peninsula South of Mt. Fuji that has numerous hot springs. I hate those little jumping green devil bugs there.
