    It’s pretty darn bad over my way at the moment.  


    Location- Just "this side" of Biloxi, Ms.

    Status- Standing by.

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought, in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out. 

  • Yeah, out here in West Texas, it was 82 monday and supposed to be 1 sunday night.  Took me almost an hour to get to work this morning, which normally takes 15 minutes.

    I miss living up north.
    But I have Duluth water way live that I play on my 2nd monitor while I'm working, and it doesn't look like a fun place to hang out right now.

    Thank you,

    Actually. Yes. One of the effects is much less stable weather

    anyway.

    The wreck on that Texas highway is all over the news.  Looks like quite the pile up.  Terrible.

    Had a bad/good black ice experience two winters ago, last time I visited Mom in Sioux Falls, and loaded up the truck with my remaining belongings.  Was driving west to home, I-90, slow but the road conditions seemed okay.  All of the sudden the vehicles in front of me all hit their brakes.
    I let up on the gas, and simultaneously saw a Ford F-OMG50 cross the median into my two lanes, Black Ice Central.  My truck started rotating and headed to the outside ditch, which I fell into at about 40 mph, 90 degrees from my normal direction of travel, and I knew I was going to roll.  
    But I didn't.  Ditch had the same layer of black ice, and I spun a bit more and came to a stop, upright.  So did the F-OMG50. We both crept along to a shallower ditch section, and were able to get back on the Interstate.  I stopped at the next Rest Area until I calmed down.  Could've been so much worse.

    I recall that the DFW area gets quite the share of ice weather.  Not gonna Google it but I am sure there was a Super Bowl played in Jerry's new home within days after a serious ice storm. 
    Surprised Jerry didn't command it to hold off!  =)

    I finally decided to buy one to put in my Garage just to take some chill out when it gets to 7 degrees here in the ATX. HD, Lowes, Target by me... SOL. Amazon- NP deliver it tomorrow.

    Don't even need pants today in my neck of the woods.  You all stay safe and hope you do not have to travel in that ugly weather.

    I guess negative numbers close to zero round to negative zero.

    I understand that coding allows for signed zeros. It applies to some obscure situations with complex and floating point numbers - but for regular arithmetic there's no such thing.

    Agree.

    Also: 1/−0 = − and 1/+0 = +∞

    When the temp is 0 and the weather man says it's going to be twice as cold tomorrow, how cold will it be?  =)
