One of the few good things about Team Kimberlin is the fact that their klutziness is a bountiful source of pointage, laughery, and mockification by so many commentators, and their thin skins often result in reactions that compound the merriment. One prime example of this occurred five years ago today after I reposted a tweet by Aaron Walker under the title Jabba the Cabin Boy™.

Buffalo channels Tantooine.UPDATE—I have been informed that Bill Schmalfeldt has posted an image that completely shows the original post above on his schmalfeldt dot org website. I believe that is a violation of the settlement agreement for the Hoge v. Schmalfeldt lawsuit. I hope that he will take the image down and eliminate the need for me to enforce the agreement.

Speaking of winter weather, Wikipedia has this to say about the climate in Ashland, Wisconsin—
Due to the city’s proximity to Lake Superior, it sometimes has lake effect snow storms, with high amounts of snow recorded.
Oh, and the record low was -41 C.
