The temperature rose above 30 today. It was balmy.

How do, all!
@Jill: No snow today and slightly warmer, above-freezing, sunny weather in NY/NJ metro. Maybe a bit of snow tomorrow.
Avatar 7:13pm Holly in NC:

Glad you'll be partnering w Meghan, I miss her show -even though I never, ever listened in real time!

Will need to bug out soon, need to get 4 dogs out before snow starts @ 8. 2 of them love snow, no biggie, but 1 HATES it and the last (who is first) has a horrible abscess on his paw on his paralyzed leg that I need to keep dry...

@JillB - No. :-) Looking at 8-10 inches tonight, preceded by freezing rain, ugh. But it was HOT out earlier today -40s !

Jesus, Jesse! Are you guys able to go to work w/out snowshoes?
Avatar 7:15pm Holly in NC:

Luckily the ABCs (state owned liquor store) were open today - they were CLOSED yesterday. If I'm going to be snowed in, I want me some gin.

@Jesse !!! OK, I will shut up now.
  7:15pm Jill B.:

It hasn't been great hear in the Willamette Valley or Oregon. Overcast and very chilly.....a good day to be inside.

Good grief Jesse, that is one heck of a lot of snow. How does one go about their daily lives in that kind on environment????

no but it's fine really. the old subway is falling apart so it takes forever to get anywhere but I think we've got used to it. People rely on parking space savers mostly.

Some enterprising person should figure out a way to convert all of that snow to potable water and transport it out to the drought stricken west.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm cklequ:

That's a really long trip to Boston from Attleboro....

Speaking of Attleboro and Boston.. is anybody else in that general area planning on heading to the Salem film festival to see the woof moo documentary next week?

@Jesse....uh.....I don't think that will do the trick out here!
Avatar 7:31pm ndbob:

@Jill I only remember snow a couple times when I lived in Corvallis - one time it got to minus 2 tho
  7:35pm Jill B.:

NoDak Bob...well....last year we had 2 feet of snow in February, freezing rain, broken water pipes at 2 in the morning! Not this year....much, much drier. Perhaps all of the huge pipe now sitting idle, as the XL pipeline has been deep sixed (at least for now), couldn't they use the pipe to transport the water out to us folks.
Avatar 7:36pm ndbob:

wow that's an amazing amount of snow for the Willamette valley
Avatar 7:39pm hyde:

@Jill B I read today that the California snowpack is at the lowest levels that's ever been measured, too. something like 19% of the average.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm listener james from westwood:

I don't envy the Boston area, not now, not for the flooding they're gonna get.
@hyde: In the years I visited Las Vegas frequently, I watched Lake Mead decline and the snowcaps on the mountains west of Vegas recede. Horrible.
  7:41pm Jill B.:

Wow, Ihssane's voice is truly amazing!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43pm Gary:

Mom, it's been enhanced by autotune!
Avatar 7:43pm hyde:

@ljfw i think actually the flooding won't be so bad. one of the good things is that every storm has been really dry snow,--so it's really only 5-6" of water in all that snow, which isn't much more than normal water-wise. i think it'll get sloppy, but there shouldn't be too much flooding if it melts gradually.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm northguineahills:

I think I saw this guy's pic on CNN.com a few years ago, of all places.

Group Doueh, is that legitimizing Morocco's claim of WS?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:44pm Gary:

I look at those pictures of people's doors open and the big white block of snow where the outside should be and worry that it doesn't matter how slow that stuff melts, it's comin' inside
  7:45pm Jill B.:

@hyde What is going to happen to the west???? I feel that people really have no clue as to just how bad it is going to get, let alone how bad it already is. The Willamette River is now down to about summer levels, with very little rain, comparatively, on the horizon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45pm Gary:

NGH! Yeah, I decided to go ahead and play them, tho I almost didn't for that very reason
  7:46pm Jill B.:

Gary, When Grandma moved to Lopez we had a severe snow storm come through. One morning she opened the front door of her apartment to a over 2 foot wall of snow. She quickly shut the door and called me to come and get her out of there! Well, at that point no one was going anywhere on the island.

you might love music by Shushan - he's a israeli film composer, and also made a cool electro-morrocan allbum in the 90's, called "yamulana" - https://www.youtube.com/user/zindluolam/videos
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm Gary:

Oh, cool -- I need to check that out -- thank you! There was this one Israeli store I used to go to when I lived in Brooklyn, but I think it's gone now. The owner knew my tastes and recommended a couple of people, including Sarit Hadad, who I really like
Avatar 8:23pm steve:

Gary maybe you mentioned this... have you seen Palace of the Winds dvd on Sublime Frequencies? interesting kind of abstract music doc on local music in Morocco and Mauritania with no dialog. liked the music, though reading about the human right situation in Mauritania afterwards retroactively changed my perspective a bit...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:24pm Gary:

Steve, I actually haven't seen any of the DVDs those guys have put out, and I really want to. Will have to track that one down; I'd love to see it
  8:24pm yaronimus:

i think you are talking about the "Azoulai Brothers" in Jaffa (my home city). it's near the watch tower.
i know them personally and they mostly sell cds. i even designed some cds for them.their still around :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:27pm Gary:

Oh, sorry, Yaronimus, I mean the store was owned by an Israeli, but it was in Brooklyn ... I can't remember where, though -- it was maybe 10 years ago that I was last there
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:29pm Gary:

Unless you mean these brothers also own a store in Brooklyn?
  8:30pm yaronimus:

naa, my bad.
  8:32pm yaronimus:

im happy :) i found an abundance of bolywood tapes in madrotter. i've been looking for a good bolywood music sharing blog for a long time.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:33pm Gary:

Do you know about Music from the Third Floor? www.mft3f.com
  8:34pm yaronimus:

i think that it's about time there was a good documentary movie about the music blogs. bodega, holy warbles (rip), flashstrap, etc. i think they harbor a great story. about "music from the third floor" - first time i heard of it.
  8:37pm yaronimus:

how rude! i can't believe they sell music you shared for free. and it's not like they give the money to the original artists. love naseebo lal.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:40pm northguineahills:

Had two phone job interviews for positions actually here in the city, today. Just w/drew most of my last of my IRA account, as w/ regular expenses, I have to get a bunch of docs notarized for the green card interview for my wife and I. (they even want us to file our taxes jointly).
Avatar 9:41pm Flash Strap:

I really really like it. It's one of the only books on the subject period, so its almost automatically essential, but I also think it's just really generous and inspired stuff. The fiction prose is a little disposable, but the intertwining histories are glorious, and his plethora of sources and quotations is just invaluable. Yeah I love it. You like? I think I remember you saying you liked it in a post a couple years ago.

Avatar 9:43pm hyde:

it seems to me like there should be more books on exotica
Avatar 9:44pm Flash Strap:

I also really like "Widening the Horizons", which is a little more academic and gets at some more of the structural aspects of Exotica, especially as an extension of, like, Stravinsky and Ravel. Have you read that one, or seen it? OH, and BEST OF LUCK TO YOU, NGH!
