This Monday morning had a quite solid need for an efficient music wake-me-up therapy. Yesterday was an all-day scouting event that I’d been orchestrating along with another guy – the annual competition between the senior*/leader scout “clans”. I was up a 6am (on a Sunday!) and back home a little after 10pm. But a good day it was.
So, the mornings playlists went on the heavier side – and, upon seeing the apocalyptic articles in the morning paper about the weather we’re about to have (hint: still not spring), I sort of figured that this was the dialogue Twisted Sister was having:
Turn it down, you say
Well, all I got to say to you is time and time again, I say, “No!”
…as in: The Weather Gods apparently want the temperature turned back down. Even enlisting Twisted Sister’s emphatic “No!” seems to be in vain, though – the snowstorm is crawling over the country as I write and should hit here by tomorrow. Here it is as it’ll look tomorrow morning (image from DMI):
That orange tongue pointing at Copenhagen is approx 2 mm precipitation (measured as rain – in snow, that could be 2 cm). Per hour. For quite some hours. With 11 to 17 m/s of wind. Ugh.
