So yesterday I mentioned how unseasonably warm it's been here in South Central Alaska for the last two weeks. Balmy 50's and rain, snow all gone.
Seriously, you've really got to wonder how far the global warming pendulum has swung towards the steamy swamps of the Jurassic when the weather is like that in Alaska - in January.
Today, it's -5F and I've got a foot of snow.
Yeah, that's Alaska for you.
And speaking of Al, the Internet is in and out this morning. It has already eaten the actual post I intended to put up and I don't have time to redo it. I've got to do some work out in the shop. There may be cool pictures, later.
In the mean time, check this out. The Navy just took delivery of the world's most powerful railgun. It's not an official death ray, yet, but still it's pretty damned cool.
