It isn't snowing. Yet. Snow is being forecast for the Philadelphia area for the next two days, an inch or two tonight, and, um, an undetermined amount tomorrow, Saturday.

Hrm. Hrm, hrm, hrm.

That's either the sound of  me clearing my throat in disapproval, or the sound of a snow-blower starting up.

I don't like the sound of this snow. It's not all that cold, it's hovering around the freezing point, and the snow is supposed to change to rain by mid-Friday, before changing back to snow on Saturday. That spells mess, with heavy snow that's difficult for man or snow-blower to move, half-melted snow freezing back into ice while I'm at work Friday night...

This could get ugly.

Update, 5:09 a.m.: it's snowing.

Looks like someone is DDoSing Hosting Matters again. Last time it was Al Qaeda sympathizers trying to bring down a pro-Israel site.

Just what all non-New Yorkers have suspected about the ridership of New York subways.


meaning: guard, protect

衛生 == eisei == hygiene
自衛 == jiei == self-defense

The radicals on the left and right, if put together, are 'go' (行). The center radical means 'guard all directions'. Henshall suggests taking the top part of the center radical as almost 'five' (五), the center part as an 'opening' (口), and the lower part as almost 'year' (年), and as a mnemonic: 'Opening to go on guard for almost five years.'
