I'm so sorry to hear that!  I have a co-worker who uses a lot of vegan cheeses.  Do you think they might be an alternate to normal cheese? 

Actually just got one. Going to try it with cashew milk in grits tonight. 
 

I am hoping my issue is just my eczema has gotten bad this year and excessive heat is causing the hives. Going to try an oatmeal bath tonight. But will let you know how the vegan cheese worked.

@Mrs.J I need you!

@H2O attacked me on Twitter with another food abomination.

 

Hey hey hey. I only posted it because I saw it in my feed and wanted to die. So I had to let others know. It was a PSA for y’all. 
 

And I’m not sure what offended me more, the spaghettios or how she made the garlic bread.

Definitely a winter day at work today especially this morning with the wind . As a result the homeowners didnt bother to come outside while I was working on their new generator install lol. 

Don’t you hate it when the homeowner hovers over you while you’re working? :whistle:

Is it just me or does someone seem like they're about to ignite? I feel a full on meltdown coming soon from them....I'm making popcorn 

He has carried us through many a dark period with reasoned analysis, so he's earned a meltdown.  And it's completely justified to be disgusted with this winter so far.

Replying to this in banter.

but what can ya do? I guess you just enjoy the heck out of the snow you get and don't complain, lol 

I try to look around and be appreciative of the entire civilization that is associated with our warmer base state.  Flooding the atmosphere with "you know what" isn't just some enormous accident; it is the byproduct of a transformation in the world which has impacted every aspect of human life, and has led to this being the most materially secure, healthiest, best educated, well-fed generation in the history of the species.  Our warmer world is a price we are paying for the houses we live in, the food we eat, the cars we drive, the electricity we have, the medicine we take. the knowledge we have in our heads and the phones that we carry around in our pocket.  As much as I hate warming, so far I would say it has been a good bargain for our species.  Whether it remains so in the future remains to be seen of course.

Put it another way; we would all love to return to snowfall and cold from the 1880's, but would we be willing to take the 1880's standard of living that comes along with it?

Disclaimer: not posting this to start a debate about CC. Just talking/analyzing numbers,trends,etc. I hope this is fair to discuss on here.


Been seeing lots of talk on the board recently about just how it is to snow around here now. Below are the last 50 years of snowfall at BWI w average and median plotted. Our most recent 2 winters have sucked thus far to state the obvious, but highs and lows have and always will be there. Variability has increased w the obvious outliers sticking out like a sore thumb.....95-96, 02-03, and 09-10 on the high end. Our most recent 10 year period had the lowest avg (16.6”) of the 5 decades followed closely by 1970-1971 to 1979-1980 (17.2”).91D198D7-BEE3-418D-B310-1CD17ACD71F8.thumb.jpeg.0393d3ff072b673a3de89203eaf87e78.jpeg

I think the biggest impact is it’s turning some of our already bad years into atrocious dumpster fires. A year that maybe was destined to be 9” or 11” ( bad but not god awful) before is like 5” now.  DC is on the verge of having 5 winters (2011/12, 12/13, 16/17, 19/20 and 20/21???) in the last 10 that would all have qualified as a “dud of the decade” in most 10 year stretches from 1880 to 2000.  That’s kinda hard to resolve as bad luck.
