This Just In:
Ships can defeat icebergs tsunamis & hurricanes.

Cities can defeat meteors, mudslides 100 Year Floods & volcanoes.

AND science can defeat rains of blood, killer robots & rampaging zombies.

"Q: Do you really think Zombies are real or is this some sort of zombie movie fan site?

A: Zombie Squad realizes that it is quite possible for someone to live their entire lives without encountering the undead nuisance. However, we hold fast to the belief that if you are prepared for a scenario where the walking corpses of your family and neighbors are trying to eat you alive, you will be prepared for almost anything.

Zombie Squad is very serious about promoting public awareness of the need for survival preparation and contingency planning."

Well there's been snow-on-the-ground and howling-prairie-wind for the past 3 days. It's definitely time to drink tea, hide under a blanket, and get back to armchair-ranting. And here I thought trick or treating in 2 feet of snow was bad... The wind-chill is at or below freezing and the wind is blowing hard enough to push cars around. It was 78 degrees and sunny last weekend. There's a draft coming through the window AC vent.
