Quite the difference when just one little word it changed


They call it an atmospheric river because it really is

Otherwise known at the Pineapple Express.  Starts in Hawaii and ends in California


Shocking statistic:  In northern Nevada, Mount Rose has been buried under 500 inches of snow this winter. The Mount Rose Highway between Reno and Lake Tahoe has been closed by an avalanche that dropped 20 feet of snow on the road.

Ha! I'm a trendsetter!

Once upon a time, freckles were considered such aberrations that women would do anything to get rid of, or at least conceal them ( CW says never!)

Topshop and other beauty purveyors sell “freckle pencils,” while Kickstarter-funded company Freck Yourself offers stencil-like adhesives that will leave your skin all sun-kissed and speckled. But hardcore freckle fetishists can go a step further: They can get these spots tattooed on their faces (CW says,"Nope, go natural or go away!).
Semipermanent freckle tattoos use pigment in lieu of ink, can last up to three years and cost about $250, according to the site NewBeauty.

Whether you have just a few (known to the cognoscenti as a "school.") or an entire constellation, freckles are the best at suggesting femininity and girl next door wholesomeness.
