I remember the Blizzard of '93. I lived in Pennsylvania at the time.
Grocery stores were packed the night before in anticipation of not being
able to travel for a few days. I think the schools closed 18 days that
year due to bad weather.

I remember the Blizzard of '93 as if it were a current event.

I don't remember it either, but then, I lived 45 minutes from
Orlando at the time.

You know, I think that was the year they forecast a possibility
of snow in Tampa, though.

It'll always be current... as long as you keep it in your heart.

Blizzard of 93? I don't think that's happened yet.

Can you imagine? In 2093, people are going to have such a
terrible blizzard that they have a newsgroup dedicated to it,
IN THE PAST. @_@ Oooh. Spooky.

You are the future... our future.

You, Cassandra, are our only hope.

Without you, we might as well give up, shrivel up, and die right now.

I mean, like, no pressure or anything, but...

College and university just so happen to be a touch harder than high
school, so this may take a while.

Well, then, let's hope you finish it before the Blizzard of '93. There's
enough time still, though :)

I think that was actually formally addressed several years ago here, but
I couldn't find anything about it in Google Groups.

Not formally addressed, really. Every now and then someone just
breaks in and opens it up for business. Usually me. ;)

I keep TRYING to find something you might drink, but of course,
you keep refusing. ^^;;

Aye. I have a mild allergy to citrus that gives me a rash, but
Sunny D doesn't cause that problem, so I use what works.

Through what means did you hope to acquire this blood? Or are you picky?

I have a poor reaction to Sunny D, myself. It's called taste. :)

I prefer orange juice from concentrate with pulp, myself.
