Its raining Iguanas.

Bloody cold here on the East coast of The U.S., but thought this might be of interest.

  • Probably another shooting.
  • I used to think it would be great if we could sign that Dominic Lizard.

    Had an enormous one of these on the dock of my rented villa on Marco Island a few years back. Reckon it was about 5' long, maybe a bit more. You certainly wouldn't argue with it. I've a photo somewhere, I'll see if I can find it. A colourful bastard but it didn't look like it would take any prisoners. You certainly wouldn't want it landing on your head!
  • It's -14c here in Maryland this morning, brass monkey weather.
  • Amazing animals. Had a mate who had one - really tame - much more so than most 'exotics'. Get really possessive around women, apparently - to the point where they'll attack anyone putting their arm round 'their' owner if they're female. My mate's one used to sit on the top/back of the sofa behind him and basically lord it over everyone and everything. Would love to keep one, but apparently they need a huge amount of space, and you they rip stuff up all the time

    I can think of a few footballers who collapse into a coma when it gets cold as well!
  • I thought The Weather Girls had released a new single! :(
  • What's it like now Limey? Any warmer?

    What's it like now Limey? Any warmer?

    A barmy 58F today, pissing down the rest of the day, and foggy. 12F tomorrow night. Snow and 17F Tuesday night. So if you're visiting do it today and bring an umbrella. Otherwise wait 'til April.

    Oh, I forgot, there's a thunderstorm warning for late afternoon today, and a gale warning from midnight'til noon tomorrow. Weather can be interesting here.

    Are you down in Florida?

    It was probably me being used to the ridiculously warm weather, but when I lived there and it got cold, it was maybe the coldest I've ever been. There is such a bite to the cold down there.
  • I'm still in Maryland, North of Baltimore, close to Pa. line.
