From NOAA

"Wednesday...Snow...heavy at times. Additional heavy snow accumulation. Highs around 19. Light and variable winds. Chance of snow near 100 percent.

Wednesday Night...Snow until midnight...then snow showers likely after midnight. Total snow accumulation 12 to 18 inches. Lows around 5 above. Light and variable winds. Chance of snow near 100 percent."


This means should get two feet or more on the ski slopes! Our third nice storm of the season, and its only just February.

Mobius Story: Wind and Mr. Ug


Piece of Candy!


Colbert Quotation

"Some cuts out there are obvious. Look at Arizona. They just had a tragic shooting by a mentally distrubed individual. So, naturally, [Arizona] Governor Jan Brewer proposed cutting over 35 million dollars to the state mental health system. Some might call that 'crazy,' but we'll never know for sure because everyone qualified to diagnose her has been laid off."

-Stephen Colbert

Need some information

Fletch, or perhaps Finn.

Watched Scott Pilgrim takes on the World last night; not sure whether it is the coolest or the worst movie I have ever seen...But there are three really interesting-looking and extremely cute girls in the movie. Can you check on who these chicks are? Fletcher, I know for sure that you will agree.

This American Life: Christmas Humor


New Zodiac Sign

Astronomer Parke Kunkle says that due to changes in the Earth's alignment the dates of many zodiac signs have changed. In addition, there may be a 13th Zodiac sign: Ophiuchus.

Kunkle says that as the Earth and Sun slowly move the signs gradually change, as expected.
The change didn't happen over night either. The 12 signs were designated to different periods of the year almost 3,000 years ago, when astrology began, and since then the Earth's position in relation to the sun has changed.

The New Dates:
Capricorn: Jan. 20 - Feb. 16
Aquarius: Feb. 16 - March 11
Pisces: March 11- April 18
Aries: April 18 - May 13
Taurus: May 13 - June 21
Gemini: June 21 - July 20
Cancer: July 20 - Aug. 10
Leo: Aug. 10 - Sept. 16
Virgo: Sept. 16 - Oct. 30
Libra: Oct. 30 - Nov. 23
Scorpio: Nov. 23 - Nov. 29
Ophiuchus: Nov. 29 - Dec. 17
Sagittarius: Dec. 17 - Jan. 20

Verizon 2-Year Contract

Verizon Wireless has confirmed that the carrier will terminate its "New Every Two" wireless discount program this month.

On a more positive note, existing customers can use the benefit to purchase a new Verizon iPhone, which was launched on Tuesday, a spokeswoman for the company said.

"A simpler program is being introduced to replace the 10-year-old New Every Two and Annual Upgrade programs," Verizon spokeswoman Brenda Raney said in an email. Customers under contract prior to January 16, 2011 who meet the qualifications for the New Every Two or Annual Upgrade will be grandfathered in to use the benefit one more time, she added.

The new program will require customers to hang on their devices for 10 months on new one-year contracts, or 20 months for new two-year contracts, the Verizon spokeswoman said. That can translate into a savings of about $400 for the iPhone, said the The Wall Street Journal.

Supernova Discovered by 10-Year Old

Age is no barrier when it comes to supernova hunting, as 10-year-old Kathryn Gray has just proven.
The Canadian schoolgirl was scanning through astronomical images on Jan. 2 when she made the record-breaking find. According to the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, Kathryn is the the youngest ever discoverer of a supernova.

SLIDE SHOW: The Supercomputer Supernova
The supernova was spotted erupting to life in the constellation of Camelopardalis in a galaxy called UGC 3378, some 240 million light-years distant. Shining at a brightness of magnitude 17, the flash was imaged on New Year's Eve. Magnitude 17 is the approximate brightness of the dwarf planet Haumea (in the Kuiper Belt) as seen from Earth.
Helped by her amateur astronomer father Paul Gray, Kathryn was taught how to look out for these transient flashes using a computer program that compares new and old images of the same portion of the night sky. Blinking between the new and old images, anything like the motion of planets, asteroids or supernovae can be spotted.

SEE ALSO: Beautiful Supernova Violence
It is an arduous task, and a significant discovery for any astronomer, but Kathryn was determined to become the youngest person to make a supernova discovery.
"I’m really excited. It feels really good," Kathryn told the Canada Star newspaper on Monday.
Kathryn showed an interest in astronomy last year and became fascinated with trying to find a supernova when she learned that the previous record was held by a 14-year-old.
The supernova, called SN 2010lt, was observed by Dave Lane, an amateur astronomer near Halifax, Canada, who emailed the images to Paul Gray for analysis. Kathryn was 4 photos into a planned 52 photo analysis session when she made the find.

ANALYSIS: Will Earth 'Be Wiped Out' by a Supernova?
"Kathryn pointed to the screen and said: 'Is this one?' I said yup, that looks pretty good," said Paul, describing his daughter's find.
As this story proves, astronomy is a science that can be carried out by anyone who holds an interest in the cosmos. Who knows where Kathryn's interest will take her next?
