It's snowing here. Not like a small smattering of fluttering flakes drifting down from the heavens. This is a full on driveway-plowing, walk-shoveling blizzard. If I didn't have The Bonus View there's a good chance I'd end up like Jack Torrance, muttering to myself in the freshly fallen snow.

Also, stay tuned next week for more 'Skyfall' related posts, specifically a Critical Mass post where Aaron and Luke debate the newest Bond movie to find out who's right.
