Satellite images and computer projections that you see on the TV news doesn't quite give you the impression of how huge this storm system is. You need a low Earth orbit perspective.

Your friend just sent you a link. Or you saw a tweet. Or a Fecesbook entry. And you just mindlessly forward or retweet or share.
One word: Don't.

A friend of mine complains bitterly about how there is no good news online. It's all doom, gloom, politics, murder, violence, and whatnot. Fortunately, she is from the UK so I found a web site that will cheer her up.

Fortunately, our Canadian friends had sufficient manpower to save the victims en masse.

I'm sure by now the news has gotten around the world that a giant snow storm is due to strike the northeastern United States this weekend. Between two and three feet of accumulations are forecast for Washington DC on Saturday.
The radar image of this storm seems to indicate that maybe it is best to have a gentle but firm hand when dealing with this storm.

A woman started an act of kindness chain that lasted for hours at a Starbucks drive-thru in Florida.
She ordered an iced coffee around 7 a.m. Wednesday in St. Petersburg and asked to pay for the caramel mocchiato for the stranger in the car behind her. He returned the favor. The chain kept going as employees began keeping count.
The Tampa Bay Times reports the chain finally ended around 6 p.m. when customer number 379 pulled up and ordered a regular coffee. Barista Vu Nguyen leaned out the window and explained the chain that started earlier in the day, asking if she'd like to participate. She declined, saying she only wanted to pay for her coffee.

Ever heard of a 61-second minute? Well, you're going to get one today. Time will stand still for one second today because a 'leap second' will be added to let a lagging Earth catch up to super-accurate clocks.
A leap second is a one-second adjustment that is occasionally applied to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) in order to keep its time of day close to the mean solar time. The leap second will be inserted tonight at 23:59:60 UTC.
It's true. The Earth is slowing down.
