## Before the snow gets too bad…

Yes, our overall snow fall is down, but we are getting unusual “clumps” of it. In other words, if $\mu$ is our mean “snowfall per week” during a winter and $\sigma^2$ is our variance in “snowfall per week”, our $\sigma^2$ is much larger than the traditional, whereas the $\mu$ is smaller.

In other words, less snow overall, but more snowstorms between periods of no snow.

Workout notes Walking and stretching. I haven’t done it yet. However, right now, my lower back and butt are what is limiting me. This photo:

Oh sure, this appeals to me for the usual, expected reasons. But notice how tense her butt is; whatever she is doing is really working the butt in ways I need to work mine. So I’ll have to give these exercises a try. I have an exercise ball and both gyms that I use have them too.

If I want to train for running and walking, I have to get my butt (and back) in shape; literally.

No, we won’t win the House in 2014, but maybe, just maybe, some of the Republicans will be more willing to compromise on at least a few things.

Physics This is an interesting article about trying to find out a wave function (polarization states of a crystal); the idea is to do 2 consecutive measurements but to do the first in a “weak” way that doesn’t affect the quantum state (e. g., doesn’t cause the wavefunction to collapse) and to do a stronger measurement the second time. Each time this pair of measurements is done, record, and over time build up a statistical model.

I am not an expert and have no idea how this will work over the long haul.
