Bizarre Coincidence

So today at work a coworker, Marc Frank commented on one of our chat channels that "This might be the creepiest website ever http://www.tasteofindia.com/."

I clicked through and thought it was bizarre because this guy looked very familiar to me.  And then it clicked with me, I know this guy, or at least I think I do.  And after viewing the image and seeing it was "justin.jpg it confirmed it for me "Justin White".  .  It's a face from a rather grim and distant period in my life…he was my divorce attorney.

Truly a bizarre coincidence as I have no idea what the connection between him and the restaurant might be.

Cool Summer, Warm Winter

So on July 9th the NWS/CPC issues an El Niño Advisory.  Depending on where you live this might be good or it might be bad.  Or, a little of both as is the case here in Western New York.  For us it explains the bleak cool and wet summer we've been having (e.g. Today's high 71°F and a cool wind when it should be 80°F and humid.); although it finally looks like this week we are finally going to get some real summer like weather.  Yea!  On the flip-side, it means we likely get a warmer and dryer winter.  The precipitation in this part of the country is the opposite of what most of the country gets, as stated in the advisory.  And if it strengthens into the Fall as expected, it means we'll probably have a fairly mild winter.

So what does this mean for me?  A cool summer cycling season, but the likelihood of an extended and possibly year-round cycling season courtesy of a "warm", dry winter.  FTW!
