I find it funny and a bit ironic when newscasts encourage people to not go out in bad weather, and they do so by reporting from out in the bad weather. Those reporters all bundled up and getting tossed around by the wind, or pelted by rain or snow. Such sacrifices for their jobs.
That said, I offer this report.
Yes, the big snowstorm that the weather people were all a-flutter about this past week arrived. I'm feeling the cabin fever as it kept me home all day yesterday. But at least I finished my conclusion. Is that redundant?
Thankfully, I got out for a nice run in the morning before the flakes started flying. It was fully overcast, but about 30 degrees and QUIET quiet. The genuine calm before the storm.
Then the roads got all messy with multiple slide-offs and such. On Friday, I talked a bit with Wolfgang who was sort of lamenting the fact that he hasn't gotten to test out the new snow tires he recently got for his truck. He was in sunny warm Hawaii during our big snow of Thanksgiving week. Oh... the hardships.
But today looks a little better... a little. I hope to get out in a bit for some errand running and general escape. I don't like to shop on the weekends, but maybe after the Bronco game starts, the crowd will thin. Yay for football fans.
This was a productive week of finishing up the semester, so I'm thankful to be pretty wrapped up with two more classes. Meego has finals coming up this week. They have two finals a day, then afternoons off. The e-mail says...
Students should use the time to complete make-up exams, seek
individual tutorial time, or
to study for exams.
So I said, "Oh, tutorial time. Good idea, that's what we'll do!"
He just laughed, like I was just messing around.
Beware the nerd mom with some time on her hands. MUAHAHAHAHA!
