Money for College Project Roundup: Traffic Apocalypse

So winter might not be truly here for all of you around the world…but here in the southeast at Money for College Project HQ, it sure feels like it!

We got back from our cruise where we enjoyed 85 degree average temps, to a balmy 35 degrees and rainy. Not exactly the best welcome home present. Beyond that, we had to get our furnace serviced so we have spent 2 of the past few days without any heat. I now 35 degrees might seem like a summer heat wave compared to many of you, but for us here in the south it’s cold!!

However, the cold weather does seem to get everyone in the holiday spirit, and Christmas lights and decorations have been springing up around our neighborhood all week.

It’s hard to believe that Christmas is only 22 days away, but indeed it is. I hope you enjoy these links as you prepare for the upcoming Christmas season, and cold winter temps!

Traffic gridlock in the middle of Pakistan, after Benazir Bhutto was assassinated.

As much as red lights bug me and kill my fuel mileage, I suppose they have a good use.

    Good roundup of links. I liked the one about the traffic apocalypse and the the survival knife… which led me to the one article and video on throwing knives…. which led to whiling away a half-hour while I should have been doing other things. No problem, time well spent. The other knife article on ARt of Manliness had a link to Meadowlake Ranch, a place just outside of town that we’ve been meaning to visit for a while now. Cheers…

      @Crystal — It has certainly been tough. The cold weather and having to do dishes have been the hardest parts! But I wont complain too much. The vacation was amazing while it lasted.

      @Shanendoah — Sometimes it’s easy for me to forget the bubble we live in. Especially when you consider the crazy weather patterns around the U.S. and around the world. The heater did get fixed today finally, and all is well! Thanks again for always stopping by!

      @Dr. Stock — I think it would be a lot of fun, but I did speak with our main waiter about his contract. He works for 6-8 months straight, without a real vacation of any kind, and then has 2 months off to go back to his home country. His wife is on the ship with him, but his baby girl is back home being raised by his mother-in-law. He says he does it for the money that he could not earn in his home country, but it sounds like an incredible sacrifice.
