I saw "mountain of jiggly" and clicked from muscle-memory...not going to lie, I am mildly disappointed.

I need to get some of that to make an IPA .

I figured those " Instagram influencing" Hollywood Stars college kids went up there and exploded in a giant wall of foam and silicone.

I bet there was a shipment of Mr. Bubble passing through that area.

This crossed the line from normal Wisconsin spring-time strangeness into "Hey, Jim, go get the city works department to clear this shiat off the street before my cousin Joe hits it and slides into my other cousin Jack's bar down the street!" territory.

Yeah it was fun to see the front yard go from buried to snow-free basically overnight but a bit scary too. This happened last year too and my man cave basement got all wet. I suppose I should be glad it didn't get foamed.

The weather has been out of whack for a while now. Last year went from hard winter immediately into a mild spring, with no gradual turnover, them transitioned into a hot-as-all-fark summer in short order, and stayed that way until it suddenly turned into a very-short fall in November, whereupon it decided it was Winter As Usual, and now it has transitioned into a mild spring after reminding everyone it was still winter for about 2 weeks. I am expecting a summer where the electric bill will be causing me heart palpitations due to extended use of the AC.

It's amazing what one Tide pod can do.

The foam floating on the Rubicon River is made up of dissolved organic matter - decaying leaves, twigs, soil, etc. - that had been locked up in ice and snow.

Eh, I'm not entirely buying that and has anyone even bothered to analyze what it is chemically? You don't get that level of foam inducing surfactancy normally.

I, too, was disappointed.

"Mountain of jiggly foam" is the name of my Wendy O'Williams/Dolly Parton crossover band.

I'd be interested to see results of PFAS tests.  That's quite a lot of foam.

Hartford is as obnoxiously conservative as Waukesha.

Good luck, farkers!

also the whole thing is Bobby's fault

Not the jiggly foam I was looking for.

My mother barn roof collapsed today. My weekend plans got shot to shiat.

I keep telling my kids that these sudden, relatively extreme warm-ups, visible grass from Dec - Mar, and farking RAIN in Jan and Feb Are totally NOT NORMAL.At least compared to "the way it was" 30+ years ago. It's blatantly noticeable and I now live 100 miles north of where I grew up. It's crazy that people think climate change is a hoax or some natural cycle.

Witnessed myself. It's actually hard to explain to people when you've seen shiat going on and they just don't want to believe or ignore for other reasons. The relative pace of geological time has sped up dramatically.

I hope she recovers quickly.
That's a a strange name, though. Native American?

/also, adding my voice to the people that are not convinced rotting leaves and soil create something with that consistency

My mother barn is part of glorious homeland. It where I store all my extra apostrophes and letter S. It is honest work.
