Du-ers in deep snow....how the heck can your doggies go outside????

Saw this on LOL cats this morning, and realized it raises a darn good question....what DO you do in such circumstance???

Never ever ever thought I would be saying thank you to G. Bush

His occupancy of the WH was SOOOOOO bad, that he has contaminated his brother !'s chances of nomination;
even the Repugs don't want another Bush in the WH.

Tornado warning in effect for Tehama County, Calif.; between Redding and Corning.

Hail and reported funnel clouds, nearing Gerber, between Redding and Corning.
Heading on path to Los Molinos.

Wow....not the normal thing.

DU-ers in snow country, pls help me understand something about traffic up there....

I spent the first 40 years on teh West Coast where we had a good snowfall every 3-4 years, enough to stop most traffic.
People went home early, and stayed off the roads, and if they had to go out, avoided hills, drove very slowly We even had an old jeep for bad driving.
Never saw long backups.
Drove over deep snow mountain passes, carefully. Little traffic. Few problems.
Couple of days AFTER the snow, the young and restless would hop in the car and make fools of themselves, true.

I moved to Fla. .....In the summer, everyday, horrific lightening storms. The boss sent everyone home at 3:00, the storms were that predictable.

So why are there 35 mile long backups on a freeway in Pa. and people stranded for over 18 hours, when the blizzard was known to be coming,
even down to the last couple hours of time?

Actor Tommy Lee Jones Responds to Palin's Speech:

If you are in the Snowpocalypse, share pics for us snow deprived folks...

Last snow we had here was in 2010....and it was almost 2 inches!

Smart TVs can tell what’s playing on the screen and show you pop-up ads based on what you watch.

So discovered security researcher Paul McMillan this week while watching Inglorious Basterds on his Samsung smart TV: one minute into the movie, an Army recruitment ad popped up on the screen.
Now, pop-up ads on Samsung and other smart TVs have been discovered before. But the weird thing here is that the TV can seemingly recognize any input you play through it, and add ads on top. What’s more, the ads may be targeted based on content recognition, a sort of built-in Shazam for ads.
McMillan was watching the movie through an Amazon Fire set top box, and as an experiment, tried playing it from his computer connected to the TV through an HDMI cable. In both cases the Army ad appeared at the one-minute mark, leading McMillan to deduce that the ad was being served by Samsung, and that the internet-connected TV was using content recognition to show ads on top of any video coming in through the TV’s input.

Smart TVs have embedded “automatic content recognition” technology that’s analyzing viewing habits and "sending data to third parties on everything you watch"

Article contains lots of info on how TV sets are wired to listen to you, and to share what they hear with advertisers!
