Random thoughts about roadside art, National Parks, historic preservation, philosophy of technology, and whatever else happens to cross my mind.

What other kind could we have?
This amuses me every time I see it: the Winter Weather Advisory. The tv weather bunnies say it all the time -- "There's a winter weather advisory for. . ." -- and it gets flashed in red across the top of the Wunderground.com online forecasts. It's February, guys, what other type of weather could we have? Especially here in the Upper Peninsula? Not only does the calendar say it's Winter, there's three feet of snow on the ground and the temperatures are in single digits or negative numbers. Of course we're going to have "winter weather." It's Winter! Not only do I not need a weatherman to tell me which way the wind is blowing, I don't need one to tell me to remember to wear mittens.
