So said Aristotle …
They must be as, after a couple weeks of spring-like weather, the following greeted me this morning.
hungry asked for a picture of the inside of my car, but the snow was too heavy 😀
We had a flurry while I was getting those pictures ready, then the sun came out and started to melt things, now it's snowing again. 🙄 Gotta love the Irish weather.
In other news…
I'm in the middle of a two week mid-term break from college. No classes, but a couple of papers, a presentation, and a tricky-ish Java programming assignment due when I get back. I'll have to make a trip in tomorrow to get some books from the library. The weather should have improved by then.
Have my tickets to Vancouver booked. The travel agent found a direct flight, non-stop Dublin to Vancouver. Usually you have have to go through Heathrow, so this will make things easier. Got a good price too, which doesn't hurt. 😉
Came across this amazing machine in my wanderings on the web. Located in Russia, this "ship tram" piggybacks vessels over a dam.
Here are some interesting facts i’ve found about this boat lift:
it has 78 wheels and moves with a speed of 1 metre per second; the turntable is 106 metres in diameter with angle of 140 degrees; the level difference is 104 metres, full length – 1510 metres, on-ground part – 1180 m; carrying capacity – 8100 tons.
