First Winter Storm Of The Year

Share

(Toledo, OH) Northwest Ohio received its first legitimate winter storm today, snarling traffic on one of the busiest travel days of the year. Perhaps 2-3 inches of snow have fallen in my neighborhood.

As usual, the first snow also brought an avalanche of accidents in the city (sticking with the motif) caused by people not used to the slippery conditions. My auto was among today's dented vehicles; a careless driver pulled right into me. Luckily for both of us I was driving one of my ancient beaters, as the damage was too insignificant to even do more than shake hands and drive away.


My faithful friend Hershey, a senescent Labrador, knew exactly where to be tonight. He is the ultimate outside dog, and only comes in when temperatures dip below zero. He keeps receiving stays of execution from his procrastinating human cohabitants, and seems determined to prove the veterinarian wrong.

As long as he can still walk without assistance, and canine aspirin holds his arthritis at bay, I will continue to stoically put off his date with the Grim Reaper (historymike's tongue firmly in cheek).

If nothing else, Thanksgiving will have the blanket of meteorological authenticity that we always hope for, but detest driving through.

Enjoy the snow Kike lover. The only good thing about snow is it white.

historymike said...

Wow.

Even on a post like this you feel the need to weigh in with stupidity.

Anyways, elric 1488 of Dayton, OH, I hope that you and your family have a happy Thanksgiving.

By the way, what do white supremacists do with the turkey's dark meat?

Just wondering...

Lisa Renee said...

That's a very good question Mike. Maybe they only cook Turkey breasts...so there is no cross contamination with the dark meat...

:-)

The heater core went out again on the Sunbird, evidently it figured now that it was cold? Was the right time to break.

Harry said...

I hope we get some snow this year in South Carolina.

Elric, compare your skin against the whiteness of snow and you'll see, your skin is no where near that color.

To Historymike and others, Happy Thanksgiving.

Lisa Renee said...

I'd gladly share some of ours with you Harry, just say the word.

:-)

Much to my chagrin, I woke up freezing my a** off to a 45 degree start to the day. 2 layers of sweats and my ski thermals.

Today it's flipping 50 and I got 2 layers of Thermals on, sweat suit and my trusty Toledo Trust parka.

I swear you cannot appreciate the "thinning of the blood" until you can remember how thick your blood is for you to run about in 50 degree weather in shorts and a tee shirt.

Today I look like the Michelin Man. Just grateful it dosen't snow here....

..and to elric, a thought from someone with more education than you, obviously. Find another hobby before your dementia becomes irreversable.

historymike said...

45 in Vero Beach? There oughtta be a law!

Besides favorable tax and bankruptcy laws, the warmer weather in the winter is among the top reasons for moving to Florida (plus the associated right to brag at Northerners).

Yes, Happy Thanksgiving to all.

Hey Mike,

First learned of you through the Bob Frantz show ( I work with Bob). Checking out your blog since I noticed you commenting on toledotalk and frantzrantz. If its alright with you I want to post your blog as a "friends" on my blog which is kooznews.blogspot.com. Also, I noticed we have the same blog design...so I may be changing mine to something different.

And no...I don't believe the NSM eats dark meat...

And for elric1488 and his tribe of merry misfits - NONE of us are white. We are all just shades of brown. Learn to live with it. It's a much nicer world with a little compassion and empathy.

Did ya ever wonder who was chopping wood out by the woodpile way back in the 'history' of some of these people? Bet they weren't ALL 'white'. ;)

===================================

wow here we have a prime text book example of 'do' (i rename him 'dolt') who has bought into the multi-culti ideology completely and has become a contagion to spread this propaganda lie

"none of us are white" that is like saying 'none of us are poor', or 'we are all right handed' it is the most stalinistic hate-white lie i have come across yet

it fits exactly what i have been saying for years and years the principle goal of the multi-culti cult is to make the white race nation culture disappear and replace it with the third(turd)world

they do this by forcing open the floodgates of all of the nation heritage homes of the white race nation family and pour in a tidal wave of non whites to desecrate and pollute their altar

because the influence of the white race has had such a profound effect upon the world in order to eliminate all proper recognition of the origins of 90% of the products that the world enjoys the origination (white race) will be eliminated and it will be 'open sourced' and even when someone of any race comes to recognize how the car originated the response will be 'so what?'as if proper respect is forbidden

it is the non white who receives recognition and is honored and cherished and protected and glorified and whatever contributions they have made we need to highlight them and exagerate to a fantasy level their influence and impact in history

to say none of us are white is to partake in the genocidal extermination of the world's most important race

this genocidal extermination began 40 years ago in earnest with the changes in the united states immigration laws permitting every non white to have equal share in citizenship as every white, note that had the united states been founded by any other other non white race say it was japan that founded the united states you can be sure japan would make certain the majority race population would be maintained as japanese and asian

this extermination can only come from within because the non white world would never be able to destroy the white race, it was the jew and the self hateing white extreme left who began this road to extermination

the jew who has cleverly made his holocaust history a perpetual memorial to be turned into a weapon of gentile guilt to emasculate the white race (because he thinks the white race is a perpetual breeding ground for anti-semitism)

because of the power of propaganda and the effective use of the mantra it would not surprise me if before this decade ends we see a fad start to spread that puts into the minds of the masses the necessity to make the white race disappear it might take the form of t shirts appearing with phrases like: "kill whitey" or "exterminate the white race" or some other such phrase which will of course be presented in a satirical manner not to be taken seiously and it will be done in a light hearted festive mood ...and whites of course will join in

we will be hearing on a continuous loop how important the dark continent (africa) is to the future of mankind, especially how critical their race and culture are and more and more resources will pour in to life them up

we already see how china is rising up like a 6 trillion ton godzilla monster devouring all in its wake (because we and europe have lost the sense of self protection as we break down our borders) world-trade-globalism all serving to reduce the preeminent postion america and europe have had, through the use of the third world's dirt cheap labor the transfering of jobs as american and to a lesser extent european companies cannot outsource and relocate fast enough

i am very proud to be white and it isn't just a word that has come to describe the color of my skin pigmentation but it denotes the wonderful civilization home i have been fortunate to be an inheritor of, the world's leading civilization for the past 500+ years which has as its first noted record the early mycanean and greek civilizations which began to shift the axis of the world's stage beginning with alexander's conquest of the persian empire and continued on through to the fall of the roman empire (which cast a dark shadow over europe for 1,000 years) then to rise again in prominence with the italian renaisance and the reformation up to the present day

the white race the right race, the worlds leading and by far most significant and important race the world has ever known

to make the white race to disappear is to plunge the world into a savage and dark age

historymike said...

Kooz:

Certainly! The more I am linked the better. I will reciprocate.

Do:

Agreed on the socially-constructed nature of "race." The idea of separate races is relatively knew, only emerging as a means of human classification in the mid-18th century.

Prior to the pseudo-scientific ideas of separate races, people were categorized by class and religion rather than race (poor, middling sort, noble; Christian/Muslim/pagan)

Early modern people might have viewed, say, Ethiopians as exotic, but not "inferior."

The rise of the notion of racial hierarchies appeared concurrently with the rise of the international slave trade in the 17th and 18th centuries; many historians argue that notions of "inferior" races became the justification for enslavement of other humans.

Do said...

Ajax.....I do believe that is the cleanser that I swirl in the toilet bowl and then flush...and Ajax isn't white either!

And Mike...I will always maintain that as human beings we all will fear what we don't understand - be it race, religion, etc. I'm thinking that that is why ajax and elric seem so nervous and defensive.

Stephanie said...

I'm just exploring, since I figured out how to link from Lisa's blog to other blogs. I wanted to leave a comment, saying I'm glad your fender bender was minor. Up here in Wisconsin, we take snow rather lightly, unless it's a lot. My brother lived in Oklahoma for awhile and told me how they got an inch of snow while he was there and went into panic mode because they didn't have enough plows.

As for the white supremacist talk...
I have blond hair, blues eyes, pale skin and freckles...yet, I'm an 1/8 Sioux. Racial superiority is ridiculous. Unless you've researched your heritage, you'll never really know what you are and if you find something that doesn't fit with your ideology, are you really less of a person for it?

Dariush said...

Mike,

You might as well face it. Every post of yours from now on, for the forseeable future, is going to attract a handful of nazis who will inevitably shift the topic to their sole obsession.

Nothing you can do but ride it out, I suppose.

ajax said...

to historymike:

yet again i see you like to engage in history revision

race is not something that man developed, otherwise we would be able to make adjustments to our skin pigmentations (like so much cosmetic application) race is a distinct human biological identifier that we carry within out genetic heritage library, mankind at some point came up with the word "race" to identify the distinction and variation of skin pigmentations and other surface biological traits amongst the human population, this classification and catagorization was begun with the white race as he came into contact with the black race and while the white race had from long time understood there were peoples other than himself who had differing skin pigmentations and other biological differences it was only with coming into contact with the blackman that so profoundly affected his thinking of human development that he dicided to make 'race' an important classification of human population

our human race (skin pigmentation) is both a human identifier along with language and serves as a border as we divide ourselves according to race as we do in language and physical borders

if we believe in evolution as the mechanism for the origin of all things and as the catalyst change agent of all that happens we can conclude that racial differences came about through adaptation to the environment

if we believe that an all powerful creator (as i do) was responsible for creating all things and is presently the sustainer of all we can conclude that racial skin pigmentations were introduced at some historical period and have served along with language differences to separate mankind from mankind so that he might avoid the pitfall of coming under the sway of a powerful personality (read the biblical account of the tower of babel) and would along with language and the dividing of the earth in continents might separate himself and begin in earnest to populate the earth

your reference of race coming into a means of human classification in the mid 18th century is related to the whiteman's discovery and consequent subjugation of the blackman and his (white race) understanding of his (white race's) default vast superiority over the black race at that time which made the white race to perceive that there are differences directly related to race which have genetic consequences and therefore are permanent in nature

this parallels the popular notion of a royalty bloodline which gave the power of rulership to a bloodline heritage progeny who in theory would have the mandate from heaven to rule over the people as they were prepared from birth to reach their position at the appointed time of succession, this would also be true of all of those born into the nobility and the other heirarchy classes

we see up to the present day how what class we are born into (this includes race classification) to a very high degree becomes a determining factor in the outcome of our position and destiny

it is critical to keep in mind that your references of race and class understandings are coming from the perspective of western man, it is correct to say that prior to the discovery of the black race the predominate categorizations were class and religion

when the black race was discovered it became very clear how disparate in development mankind would become: the human race as in an actual marathon race of differing peoples with their differing skin pigmentation identifiers would not keep stride with each other but would in fact reveal as in an actual race that there were those who were many lengths ahead in the race and consequently there were those who were many lengths behind in the race

your reference to early modern people viewing racial skin pigmentations as being exotic reminds me of those contacts that the white race people had with the black race prior to the rise of the white race western european empire expansion from earliest greek (perhaps there were black slaves who were present in the alexandrian period) to the roman republic and empire (which did witness the appearance of black slaves) any references to the black race in that time period is limited and it is very clear that the white race well understood the black race as an inferior race to them subject to their subjugation to him, however i do think they nevertheless did regard him as a novelty (since his appearance was so limited in numbers) and did not necessarily despise him but did in textbook fashion regulate him to a position below that of the white race because there was such a rigid understanding of the order and position of all things

there are those who are under the mistaken notion that carthage and the mighty and rich and glorious empire that it became was a black race peopled empire ...this is a false notion and serious historical error, it is very clear from the written history available that what would become known as carthage had its origin from the people of phoenicia who were middle eastern most likely of semitic stock who were renowned merchant traders and superb ship builders who settled in that geographic location and prospered, they may have intermingled with the black race that they may have come into contact with but to what extent is unknown

as the white race nation people grew in might in their western european heritage home and began in earnest to engage themselves in the black race slave trade they justified the slave subjugation of the black race with the understanding to them at that time that they were in such a vastly superior state of advancement to the black race (this feeling of superiority was so extensive at that time that it became popular amongst some of the white race to think that the black race was not fully human) that they had the feeling that the creator had given the destiny of the black race into the hand of the white race to have the mastery over them

there are times in history where the 'fork in the road' comes into play, where a pathway becomes open, where a pandora's box makes its appearance ....it was at that time in human history where such a great time-moment came on the human scene: the rising western european man mighty and powerful wealthy and brilliant inventing and innovating in his discoveries comes into contact with the blackman, the jolly green giant as it were discovering the african pygmy, what does he do?....the heavenly audience awaits ...will he see the blackman as his human brother bestowing compassion upon him as he (from the white man's perspective) sees him to be in a state of poverty, or will he take selfish advantage of the situation

unfortunatly the whiteman followed in the footsteps of cain and took every advantage to exploit the blackman and his goods justifying to himself the reason that in so doing he would bring the light of civilization and truth (christian gospel) to the blackman and uplift and place him in a higher state than he found him

it was a great sin stain entry in the ledger of the white race nation, and it points to how all of mankind no matter their greatness are subject to temptation and corruption

but to make revsion of history and corrupt truth as do the extreme left multi culti cult masters in their quest to reduce the historical standing of the white race nation people, to bring them down to the level of the third world, which is what they must do in order to 'even out' all of the world's population, to ridicule any notion that there might be any kind of a race caste based maybe not on genetics but on culture identified with race, to force the whiteman to forget about having any racial identifier while at the same time overly glorifying and making race the preeminent identification for the non white is also a socially engineered crime

as i have stated before the war of extinction upon the white race nation people is being waged by the white race upon the white race, as the jew being its general leading the charge, while the non whites (headed up by the blacks) are the blind drone armies marching, and the mass herds of dead whites (the self-hateing, guilt ridden infected white weak sheep) are the walking zombies who have been massively infected with the guilt virus and become this death contagion infecting the white population at every opportunity

this war of extinction is an invisible spiritual war and only can be seen and fully understood by the small remnant of the white nation people who have become racially and spiritually aware of it

no one can know what the full outcome may be, but the white race hateing none whites and self hateing and guilt ridden whites are fully confident of their eventual victory, i find it curious how at every turn when someone speculates upon the demise of the high position of the white race the enemy of the white race always cheers sometimes openly, these advances for example of high placed blacks for instance (whether due to quota or merit, it makes little difference) have their race identifier as their most significant feature and the spotlight showcaes them to the world and they become these pampered darlings, the strong suggestion being made to all that we should root exclusively for them and their advancement because they are from the protected and cherished class

===================================

this "handful of nazis" as you state is the very small remnant of white people left scattered among the white race nation who have not been infected with the world wide plague of white guilt that only infects the white race

they are holed up in their protected monasteries
strengthening themselves for the battle, some are of the soldier class, some are of the scholarly class

this war has as its first battle line the war of ideas and the weapons are words and wherever words are broadcast (the internet being ideal) the battle is engaged

this is a very serious war, even if the non white and white people alike are completely oblivious to it, and the extreme left and guilt ridden white and racially aware non white ridicule those who understand this spiritual war and reveal it to the world

this is a war for the very survival of the white race nation people and their historical heritage

to the non white and the infected white the end of the white race nation is welcome news, with the advancement of each high placed black and other non white in society the enemies of the white race nation cheer

the historical backward and current degrading state of affairs in the dark continent nations: zimbabwe, south africa, ethiopia, somalia, sudan, central africa, nigeria, etc etc receive no proper judgment and the burden to rescue them ala the 'white man's burden' weighs heavily on the good conscious of the decent whiteman who will be prodded to see africa as the hope for future mankind while at the same time europe becomes increasingly irrelavant

forget the fact that black africa enjoyed the highest state of social stability and prosperity when he was ruled by the whiteman, just erase the past truth and explain all present shortcomings as the result of 'racism' and have the whiteman bear his burden and make his past heritage to no effect and his future a goal to raise the 'disadvantaged' to his level while his own white race identification disappears as he drowns in the cesspool of the third world

historymike said...

I absolutely love the phrase "history revision." It is often thrown about by people with no clue as to how historical thinking occurs.


The process of historical writing is always under revision, ajax. Documents become available that were not known when previous writers considered a topic, and archaeological digs occur all over the world that provide new pieces of information to inform our views.

In addition, historians have begun to rely less on the traditional Western European sources, and are beginning to tap into the wealth of information available recorded by other cultures. Oral historical traditions have also provided new pieces of the historical puzzle that have been ignored by earlier writers.

The idea that history is static and unchanging is faulty; this is akin to arguing that you can tell a family's history through two diaries and a handful of photographs.

Finally, consider the role of forged documents in history. Two interesting examples: The Donation of Constantine and the Protocol of the Elders of Zion.

It is only through the work of historical "revisionists" that attempts to distort the historical record have been uncovered.

Ajax, I prefer to do my own cleansing, thank you. I will achieve this through education, enlightenment, empathy, compassion, exposure, open mindedness, and grace.

Your posts lead me to believe that the white supremacists are a scattered group of folks that are terrified that they are losing their grip on whatever social status they believe they are 'entitled' to.

The idea that race is the defining factor for a self imposed level of superiority is pompous, at best. It's akin to rehashing the theory of which came first - the chicken or the egg. There will be multiple views and seldom will they intersect without some kind of dissent.

Race is like money - it could be considered to root of all evil. If we, as HUMANS, can effectively see beyond race to the many other attributes of the soul we would be a much happier world. Skin pigment, birth place, nor our forebearers sins/accomplishments would have a hold on our progress as a united collection of PEOPLE.

I would hope that in eventuality you would be able to open your mind and allow your thoughts to progress to a world where you and I are not described as white, black, oriental, jew, buddhist, etc.

I grew up in a bigoted, hateful, racist home. It's a horrible place to be. Get past it, get over it and let yourself grow.

to do aka dolt:
===================================
"Your posts lead me to believe that the white supremacists are a scattered group of folks that are terrified that they are losing their grip on whatever social status they believe they are 'entitled' to."
===================================

for your enlightenment the only social status anyone is entitled to is what they receive at their birthright: genetic library heritage influence, parental influence, environmental influence

for your further enlightenment the white race nation people (unlike the protected cherished minority groups) do not come out of the womb screaming and whining for uncle sam or whoever they can find to suckle them and coddle them and diaper them, the white race nation people (with the exception of the brain dead liberals and white guilt crowd amongst them) are a resourceful and industrious people with a history to be proud of, their status and position is not something that has been given to them (unlike the quota black)artificially everything that they have achieved as a race is something that they have earned

one's position and rank however can be supplanted either by legitimate means (as in the case of china) or through illegitimate means (this war of white race-culture extermination waged by the multiculturists)

the default image of the remnant of uninfected white race people that the multiculturists want to present to their minions is of a very small number of irrelevant old dinosaurs who are becoming extinct and must be pushed out of the way to make room for the non whites who are more talented and have a superior civilization and are the future hope for mankind and are in fact the future itself

the first phase is to erase the white race nation from the history books whenever possible, ridicule and badmouth whatever history of them remains

the second phase is to create the false need that the white race nation is in need of the non white peoples, we see the massive immigration of third world people into the united states and europe as an example of this

the third phase is to replace the white race culture with that from the non white population (this will take a long time to accomplish) to begin this first the inferior third world non white cultures must be elevated to that of the white race, we see this as the multi cultists present to their students every third world culture and explain to them how wonderful and unique they are in their own way

===================================
"The idea that race is the defining factor for a self imposed level of superiority is pompous, at best. It's akin to rehashing the theory of which came first - the chicken or the egg. There will be multiple views and seldom will they intersect without some kind of dissent."
===================================

the classic example of the left and multi cultists cleverly misreading what truth is presented before them, as i wrote in the previous post race (as we have come to define the skin pigmentation and surface biological traits) is a classification which separates the population much like language does, race in and of itself does not indicate superiority or inferiority

those people who we refer to as belonging to the white race have a skin pigmentation and certain surface biological traits which distinguish them from other races

the social, historical superiority of their place and position was not something that came to them through the race gene it simply happens to be that this race of people developed much more rapidly than most other races over time and this was a continuous trend lasting for a period of 2,300 years with a period of 800 years (500-1300 ad) as a stagnant time interval

because of the phenomenal advancement of the white race nation upon the earth beginning with the italian renaissance continuing on through to the present day was so spectacular and nothing previously in history can compare to this explosion of advancement in all areas of life the temptation does exist to think that the superiority of the white race can be found somewhere hidden within their genetic heritage library, it is possible to conclude as a people advances their genetic heritage libray carries along that advancement, however to conclude that there is some kind of a master race gene would require the intervention of the creator to take action and create this gene or make adjustments to a gene structure to bring this about, due to the fact that proof of this divine intervention does not exist compels me to refrain from stating that the race gene alone explains outcomes

however considering that as the white race nation did embrace the one true god, and his message (only because they were chosen beginning with the roman church) one can conclude that there was an intervention of divine blessing visited upon this race and especially during the reformation was this blessing seen as the church was reformed and grew to magnificence through the protestant churches at the very same time do we see the greatest development in western civilzation take place

===================================
"Race is like money - it could be considered to root of all evil. If we, as HUMANS, can effectively see beyond race to the many other attributes of the soul we would be a much happier world. Skin pigment, birth place, nor our forebearers sins/accomplishments would have a hold on our progress as a united collection of PEOPLE."
===================================

race (skin pigmentation, surface biological traits) was introduced by the creator and man has nothing to do with it

the idea of 'thinking beyond race' has in view only one application: the white race, the non white races are allowed to glory in their race identification at the expense of the white race who are ordered to remain silent and deny their race identification

===================================
"I would hope that in eventuality you would be able to open your mind and allow your thoughts to progress to a world where you and I are not described as white, black, oriental, jew, buddhist, etc."
===================================

again a false construct, the only people who are urged to open mind and progress to some supposed world where race identity does not exist are the white race people who are urged to discard their race identity and culture and adopt the 'superior' culture of the third(turd)world, the non white races are urged to not only remain in their race identification but become increasingly militant as they do so

===================================
"I grew up in a bigoted, hateful, racist home. It's a horrible place to be. Get past it, get over it and let yourself grow."
===================================

by this of course you are indicating you grew up in a white raced home (if you had grown up in a non white raced home you would never refer to it as racist or bigoted) a home that by default was racist and bigoted (because white raced people are by default born that way according to the multi culti cultists and only when they have become infected with the white guilt virus might they be cured of 'racism')

"get passed it, get over it, let yourself grow"--- code words from the multi culti cult handbook let me transalte for your edification:

'get passed it'--get passed your race whiteman, do not think of your race because your race is the dead past, the future is the non white race and culture and in order to survive you must learn from them and adopt their race (you cannot change your skin color but obliterate any reference identication you have of being white)
'get over it'--obliterate out of your mind your white 'racist' history because you are the enemy and oppressor of mankind and your white race as your identifier must disappear
'let yourself grow'--discard out of your mind the dead white past, and grow (become guilty over being white which will help you to obliterate your race identity) grow into the more superior non white culture because that is where the excitement is (music, mannerisms etc) and the only hope for the future of humanity and where we can all live in an equal diverse utopian earth

So, Hershey is hanging in there, that's good to hear.

Thank God that dogs don't always listen to Vets.


What is amazing to me each first snowfall of the season is how many people from the warmer climes have moved to Toledo since the last snowfall of past season; not to mention the newborns that became qualified to drive in the same snow-less period.

The local and Weather Channel hype types I understand. As for the rest.... well, maybe they're founding members of Short Attention Span Theater...

I apologize for getting off topic. A mind is a terrible thing to waste, and I was thinking that a couple of 'tourist' posters may have been salvageable. My mistake.

Mike, Hershey is beautiful. Hang in there with him. My old yellow lab was my friend for 17 years. She finally reached the end of her journey, but that was about 6 years after 'eternal peace' was recommended by the vet.

More snow last night - makes the streets peaceful and the landscape appear clean and undisturbed. When the rains come tonight/tomorrow that will wash away and give us a glimpse of an early spring watering. My flowers are looking forward to it already.
