I live in an area that rarely gets snow, so everything grinds to a halt when we get 5 inches of snow. Things really get backed up when it snows 5 inches and its too cold for the snow to melt, and then it snows again the next week. It melts, but then it gets icy again (like this afternoon).
I’ve been trapped in my office/bedroom for about three weeks now? This week I was able to climb over the sidewalks that were still covered in snow and over at the old Coliseum Mall to go to an eye appointment. That was a big deal.
The job postings have slowed down these past few weeks due to people not making it to work to post the job listings. So what have I done?
Made a snow Bartman:
Began a hobby in needlework so I can sell more items in my Etsy shop in the future:
Derpy neon Hank Hill (not for sale, making another one that will be for sale soon).
Tom Brokaw (still in progress, not for sale)
Northwest Airlines (for sale)
Catching up on my YouTube “watch later” list:
Before the snow, I had about 460 videos in my watch later. I have 353 left. They’re mostly just sets of old commercials, and old news reports about things I might write about it in my “history” blog in the future. One entry that came out of the massive watch later purge was PSA Flight 1771.
In shock about Sweet Briar College closing in August:
Sweet Briar announcing their closure hit way too close to home for me, since I’m an alumni of a womens college (Mary Baldwin, 2010). I spent yesterday being sad and looking at some of their yearbooks on archive.org.
Watched hours of Siskel & Ebert:
Did you know they had a dog on their show that would present “the dog of the week” aka the worst movie of the week? This was back when they were on PBS.
