The Winter of Our Discontent

As of January 27, 2011, Danbury CT has gotten 56+ inches of snow, by far the most snow our part of the state has ever received during the month of January. Needless to say, this is the most intense winter yours truly has ever seen, which goes to show just how insignificant man is regarding the reality in which we all live, residing on a tiny planet in a relatively mid size galaxy of a trillion stars existing in the part of the mulitverse containing a trillion galaxies. Makes one think a bit about Carl's Sagan's elegiac A Pale Blue Dot if you ask me.

Must leave now to continue shoveling out the driveway, courtesy of the Winter of Our Discontent. :)

The above picture is that of our shed laden with at least 30+ inches. :)
