"Let It Snow" Performed by Jamie Cullum


In honor of the first real snow of the year this evening, our first white Christmas (yes, it's still Christmas) in memory, although it has been snowier and snowier each year over the past decade, as a result of global warming no doubt. Walking home through the winter wonderland, it was a pleasure to hear the shouts of joy from the housing wherein dwell the overseas graduate students and researchers, many of them from India and Vietnam and probably experiencing their first snow.

NYC got pounded by a major blizzard on Sunday. We're still snowed in two days later. City buses are stuck and abandoned in the middle of the avenues and several train lines are suspended.

One writer at the NY Times tried to make sense of it all by reasserting the snow is due to global warming, but then at the very end of the article seems to changes her mind by calling it "climate change":

"Bundle Up, It's Global Warming"

I can't help but remember the Blizzard of 1977 in Cheektowaga, a.k.a. Cheektowarsaw, when my little sister was almost killed by a snowplow, 'cept for the neighbor kid that saved her.

I should also mention that Buffalo's greatest post-Grover Cleveland mayor, James D. Griffin, at the time advised everyboday to get a six-pack and stay home, thus "Six-Pack Jimmy."
