We're up to about three inches of snow now with a bit of ice below. Traffic seems to be totally snagged, typical for an Arkansas winter storm where ploughing equipment is sparce up here in the country. I called my Mom to let her know that we had a winter storm warning and to tell her that she should ome home. THey had sme kind of a teachers' luncheon so the secretary wouldn't interrupt so she sent an email telling my Mom to come home. She got it forty minutes later and headed home. Those forty minutes made a huge difference because by then, it had sleeted quite a bit and the roads were ice rinks. It took her about an hour and a half to make a trek that usually takes 30 minutes. She's not happy with a school that doesn't monitor the weather. Perhaps they should pay me to keep them on top of weather warnings. Doubt they'd have me.

A guy who I knew from like three years ago who used to do brailling of physics and science before we had the big Textlab, emailed me today wanting to know how to make a particular chemical. I'm kind of honored and a bit apprehensive. On one hand I don't want to be giving him free consultant work which I could charge lots of money for, but on the other hand, I'm a qualified chemical engineer now, or something, and why not help the guy. I asked him for more information so we'll see what happens.

Well, suppose I'll just sit here and enjoy the fire. Toasty and warm.

    I'm not sure what the plan is today, but we have done what, in my opinion, is the perfect vacation activity, slept in and veged out so far. I think…

  • welcome to the jungle, for real.

    Well, we made it, finally! Everyone's up right now, but we're not doing anything so I'm writing. We got here last night, after several delays and…
