Week of 2.13.12: Quiet Week, Jousting & Whitney

Despite the very wintery temps we felt this weekend, the week ahead is again mornfully quiet. We will warm up into 40s once again, and we'll see some snow showers early in the week. There is a disturbance moving our way for Thursday night into Friday but the early runs of the computer models do not indicate anything but rain and improving conditions by Friday afternoon. We'll keep an eye on the storm for the end of the week, but we don't have our hopes up.

Because of the slow week ahead, you're probably going to need some excitement in your life to get you to the start of February vacation. We have just the fix--Full Metal Jousting on the History Channel at 10:00 on Sunday. Watch the Grammy's until 10 and then, "Let's get Medieval, baby!" It's going to be gruesome, but expect the unexpected--we can not wait.

On a side note--and we're not ones to get too sentimental (given the winter we've had, there's plenty of room to wax poetic about the past)--but a certain GSD staffer is a little teary-eyed about the passing of Whitney Houston. There was a time when this staffer saw Whitney live and in person at Woolsey Hall on the campus of Yale University in November of 1985 in a small hall performance (2000 patrons? 3000?) and she simply blew the roof off. She was the Adele of the 1980s, and her songs "The Greatest Love of All" and "Saving All My Love For You" were Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" and "Set Fire to the Rain." When her voice was still good--before all the trials and tribulations--her range would make you catch your breath. Back in the 1980s, she was a ridiculous talent.

Have a great week, everyone. We'll let you know about Friday's storm later in the week.
