If it hasn't become apparent to you yet, you are living in an age when your every online step is being monitored. The notion of communications privacy has been steamrolled in the interests of security, and the occasional tiny chance we get to peek back at the people who make it their business to watch us is truly frightening. Two new stories from America this week give a rare glimpse behind the curtain at just how closely you're being watched, and by whom.

Today:

We awoke to ICE PELLETS, not snow.  It looks like snow from a distance, but it is little tiny beads of ice.

I tried to be very careful when I was walking Big Girl, and kept on the grass where the ice pellets had melted.

But she sure wanted back in the workshop. Paco and Misty avoided the ice.

My SPCA boss called to see if I was going to take my fosters into Conroe Petco for Adoption Day tomorrow.   But she said none of us are going if there is still ice on the roads in Conroe, as a couple had already died at an intersection near her house today.

"There has been one double fatality accident that occurred at 6:45 a.m. Friday on Texas 105 East at Willis-Waukegan Road in Cut and Shoot due to the icy road conditions, Burse said.
A pedestrian also was struck and killed this morning along I-45 and Calvary Road near Willis in north Montgomery County."

Calvary Road is behind my house, it is the road that you see at the end of my walkway, and on the left side of my back yard, where Paco and Misty were staying away from the ice today.
