The dangers of yellow snow — 23 Comments

  1. “In an appropriate way” describes the method of preparation, not the preparation itself. (That would be “appropriately”)  So it probably means “prepare calmly, without panicking or killing anyone”

    • But what am I supposed to prepare?  Do I fill the bath with water?  Do I build a shelter in the basement?  Or does it just mean I should bring indoors any delicate pot plants?

  2. Well apparently, appropriate means, don’t smoke under any circumstances, consume alcohol wisely or not at all, bet sensibly, never drink and drive, obey all laws, don’t use offensive language, no misogyny, no racist comments, pay all your taxes, do what the Government says and respect women and minorities. If you are that appropriate, the blizzard won’t affect you!

  3. My attempt to reply to your reply didn’t work.  I agree with you.  An invitation to take appropriate action without specifying what that action might be is useless.

    • That’s what happens when our would be leaders feel compelled to tell us what to do, even though they don’t know themselves.  At least they can claim they warned us…

  4. Sounds like Vermont’s version of occasional flurries. By the way, it was -29C this early morning at my place, the snow is a couple of feet deep around the yard and daffodils are still sleeping soundly and will be for at least another month.

    So, not to worry, yes?

  5. Grandad, you’re 68?!? FFS! There should be a LAW forbidding OAPS from using the intrawebz…haven’t you got a mug of ovaltine that needs your attention? 😛

    • What age did you think I was?  You must know I am reasonably old because I know my grammar and am reasonably proficient in spelling?

  6. Grandad, please send some white stuff to me, it was 40C in Sydney yesterday and it is supposed to be “Autumn” down here!

    I can beat your snow warnings, down here as you would know we get a lot of bushfires, even in and around the major cities. We used to have a warning system that described the bushfire risk as low, moderate, high and very high; now however we have a new warning of “Catastrophic”! This is now used for just about everything, if there is a bit of a gale blowing up it is now catastrophic high winds etc. etc., drives me insane, everything is now reported as the end of civilization as we know it and then when it just turns out to be a nasty storm or some smaller local fires the media just sort of forgets about it all.

    • I would dearly love to but there are a couple of logistical problems.  I doubt I could afford the postage on a couple of tons of snow, and also you would just end up with an extremely soggy cardboard box.  It would possibly melt crossing the equator?

      You can send me a few degrees though as you apparently have some to spare?
