Ten inches of snow predicted for tomorrow evening. And I have to get to work. I am so not looking forward t this.


meaning: horizontal, weft

緯度 == ido == (noun) latitude
緯線 == isen == (noun) parallel

Left radical is 'thread' (糸). Right radical is a character only found in Chinese that originally meant 'opposed feet'; phonetically it also expresses the concept 'differ'. Thus, 'threads going in different/opposed direction', or the weft of woven cloth. Henshall suggests remembering the right radical by association with 違, and and as a mnemonic: 'Horizontal weft threads differ from warp.'
