Rusty is back.

Guess it is now time for the after dinner walk.

Not that he won't want to go out again around 7:45, when his friends might be out.

He never figured out that nobody is there on rainy days.



This is why rats are better than dogs.


edit:
Did full walk. I'm sure he'll want to go back out after dinner anyway.

Whole walk + longer 1/2 walk in afternoon = 2 1/3 miles. No more walks.

It's cold, there are rumors that winter may actually show up yet this year.... I hope so because if it waits until November we aren't going to have any water this summer at all.

Kids don't seem to notice it's cold, still have to tell them to put coats on. Keep the cafeteria at a minimum of 70, so it's too hot while I'm there.

Orc's gone so I'm listening to my jazz/blues station

Thanks Joyner and J5 for the optics recommendation I'll bookmark that!

It's worse when they aren't your kids.

Because then their mothers want your necks for not noticing that they didn't have a coat on when you let them go outside.

I need boxing gloves to protect my hands while walking on the treadmill. I'm fine jogging, hands are up, but walking, I manage to smack them into the side bars. Ouch.

Rain stopped here, just foggy out now. Supposed to snow tomorrow.

Good evening everyone. Was out all day - sunny and warm, but traffic is awful. Had dinner with a friend, drop car key fob when I was putting it back in purse. Can't lock doors or car when it is IN the car. So, full belly and tired body down on hands and knees with flashlight. Finally got it. Feel like a bagged a deer or some other hunter's prize.

ONOES SNOW

Also Gatzby is all "I am expecting you to come in anyway"* and I don't think he quite understands if there is any ice involved I will risk breaking a limb leaving the very steep steps in my apartment!

PWA, you gotta have my back here!

* which is hilarious because it's slated for the days I am not inside my cube and all...

I'm just hanging out, really.

I am working with an application that's business critical and currently running on a windows 3.11 machine. The install package is on 3 3.5 floppies. I'm making copies of the install disks and then trying to install and configure it to run on XP.

Never liked them as coasters, no absorbency. They worked much better as rubber band gun pigeons.


And...goodnight.

No I'm actually from here (I just hang out with agingdragqueen a lot because she's cool), and while I can handle snow, it's honestly everyone else I worry about. They don't know about salt! They can't drive and they try to. It's frightful, all these imports to the area. Plus I live around a lot of blind corners, it's honestly a wonder I don't get smacked at someone trying to tear about in places that shouldn't be torn about in.

Mostly I'm just concerned that I'll be iced in, or try to go outside, slip and fall and break things on the very steep steps that go into my building.

I actually love snow.

OK

The boxes for the tree stuff are there >>>>>>


The ornaments are there
<<<<<<<<<<


I did get the boxes from the attic today. Which is how they got there >>>

The question is.....how long will it take for the ornaments to go from
there <<<<< to the boxes?

And then, finally, back up there ^^^^^ into the attic again.

Shouldn't the apt building take care of the ice?
Or you can buy some ice melt yourself!
Or you can just work from home, like everyone did before the merge!

If you are going to slip and break things do it at work, it will teach Gatzby a lesson when he has to explain the spike in workers comp. insurance rates.

I live in Houston area. We don't know how to drive in the snow here. City shuts down if it's icy - and some Wakko will still try to drive up the ramp on a big overpass and slide down.

On the topic of snow, we agree.


Ok, I think I'm caught up.

KdC, it's not so much that we (everyone in general) don't know how to drive in snow, we don't have the road equipment to deal with it effectively since we get it so rarely. I heard though that the TX DOT has purchased more equipment after last winter's fiascoes.

My mom and stepdad would drive to FL, because stepday was a bit afraid of flying.
They discovered down south, they just close I 95 if it snows.
Major road on the east coast, and they just close it!
When the plow is done, it opens again....a day or two later.

I;m guessing there is only one plow.

More than likely just some road construction equipment with scrapers attached.
