Re: OK ... today officially SUCKS!!!

Yeah, tell me about it! The wind is blowing about 20mph with gusts to 30, and it's only supposed to be upper 50's today! When is it ever going to warm up? That 92F day we had last week spolied me.........

You got four dozen other guitars to play and one of'em is a kinda new purchase. Grab one of them and turn the knob to 11.

Re: OK ... today officially SUCKS!!!

It's sunny and the high will be 68 in San Jose today. I have a new bike in the garage that's begging to be ridden. I am in the house sick with a fever, and two conference calls to do for work today.

This sucks!!!

I plan on doing just that when I get home. We going to stoke up the fire, crack open a Cab, and I'm going to crack up the amp and jam all night. I can't think of anything else to do.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Yea...I've heard that a lot.

Actually, buying and selling guitars on eBay is what afforded me my first BMW.

Re: OK ... today officially SUCKS!!!

Our weather radio just went off with an alert, changing the winter storm warning to a blizzard warning. WTH?

My boss, who takes pity on me for my long commute, sent me home at 11:00. The snow plows are not able to keep up with what is coming down.

Looking out the window now (4:20 PM) I'm guessing we have 6" of snow, with lots more predicted through tomorrow. Definitely our biggest snowfall this season, when it's all over.

There are lots of BMW dealers with open houses scheduled for tomorrow. I hope they reschedule. That, or stock snowmobiles.
