Friday is the 107th birthday of Jorge Luis Borges, the great Argentinian writer. Read my favorite of his works, a meditation on history, reality, and belief called "Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius." (While you're at it, listen to some Guillermo Klein - a great current Argentinian jazz pianist and bandleader.)

Forecast: Significant blowing and drifting, with the possibility of heavy accumulation in rural areas.
