“You can die on Mars, or you can live in South Dakota.”

Mars has only light snowfall. It does have tornadoes… or at least dust devils.

    I have no idea what a sunset over SoDak looks like,but this view of Mars is clearly out of this world and with nary a wingnut in sight.

    Mostly I’m grateful that this recent spring snowstorm was not another Atlas.

  3. Deb Geelsdottir

    That was a fascinating article Mike. Blue sunsets?! Who’d of thought?

    I agree Roger. My West River friends tell me they are managing quite well.

    Local and national news talk about the SD snow and tornadoes every night. How much did RC actually get?

    I noticed what looks like a sun dog on the right side of the Martian sunset. Bet it is colder than a well digger’s wallet out there.

    “colder than a well digger’s wallet”

    Your imagery is almost as vivid as the Martian sunset!

  6. Mr. mike, who is from Iowa, knows less about such common sayings about the cold like ditch-digger monkeys and witches brassieres than most of the people where you live, Ms. Geelsdottir, in Minnesota. I’m just sayin…

    Grudzilla-you know nothing. What color are my killer,smoky blue eyes?

  8. Post a picture from Iowa, Mike. Then all of us in South Dakota can see your eyes.

    I think you’re suffering gravy overload grudz. Better get to a doctor soon.

  11. That’s the most intelligent comment I’ve seen from The Grudz in months.

  12. Deb Geelsdottir

    Hahahahahahahaha!

  13. The ol’ boy just hasn’t seemed like himself these days.

  14. Roger Cornelius

    Deb,
    We got about a foot of snow in downtown Rapid City, it was melted and the streets dry by Sunday evening.

    Did grudz’s computer go or haywire or does he need therapy from someone that is not insaner than most?

  15. (Sorry—had to add some formatting to show what Grudz was up to. Surely part of another face gazing up at us from the Martian landscape.)

  16. Deb Geelsdottir

    Oh! Now I see! Cory, isn’t that a Mt. Rushmore eyeball?
