Johanna Faust, a mixed race Jew, prefers to publish pseudonymously. She is committed: to preventing war, ecological disaster, and nuclear apocalypse; to keeping information available and free; and to not only fighting for personal privacy, but, by representing herself as a soldier in that fight, to exhorting others to do the same. All these efforts find representation on her blog "ah, Mephistophelis," so named after the last line of Chirstopher Marlowe's in his famous Dr. Faustus, which, as some would have it, successfully flouted the censor for a time. A female Faust, she is a poet, always.

Snow blanketing northern hemisphere - VIDEO

Seeing this graphic from an article in the UK Daily Mail I decided to verify it, which quickly became a larger effort, the fruits of which are below.  Still working on comparisons to earlier years -- I don't recall this happening before, with the possible exception of that storm that had it seemed all airports in the Northern Hemisphere shut down due to fog (snapshot; URLs of google searches unreliable - click to enlarge), but I want verification.  Kudos to NASA for being easier to navigate and more comprehensible than NOAA (though their URL's are tougher to suss).

Be seeing you.
