I hate weathermen

My prediction is no snow tonight, or tomorrow. I expect cold weather and probably some ice, but no accumulation of snow. I base this forecast on nothing scientific. It's based entirely on the face that the "real" weathermen seem to think that it will snow, which my experience has lead me to believe nothing of consequence will happen!

Bad literature

Leo Laporte recommended Anathem by Neal Stephenson and usually he makes good recommendations. I'm about 230 pages into it and it's abysmal. I'm honestly not really sure what's happening in the book. The languages tries too hard to be "smart" and different, which ultimately fails and makes it harder to follow. The plot in the first 230 pages could really be summed up in about 20. Thus far I'm quite disappointed.
