I got up this morning and blew six-plus inches of snow out of the driveway. You wouldn't know it now. The snow totals at O'Hare are 16 inches so far. I believe this, because Julie lost her boot in a drift in the backyard. In the dark. On a hill. With no exact position to be had, because Julie couldn't go out without a boot and Katie had defected to the neighbors whose phone must be an Internet phone, as it is going straight to voice mail. (Yes, I'm posting now. I just came downstairs and rebooted the modem and am happy to see it's working after a several hour outage.)

In the meantime, school has been canceled for tomorrow, so at least I won't have to get up early to clear the driveway tomorrow morning.

And with the Internet back, I'll actually be able to do some work.

  • Reporting In

    Gretchen and I went to the doctor for a fasting blood draw this morning. We'll see how the results are. This afternoon, Gretchen went *back* in that…

  • Steps

    Today is better than yesterday. Still short on solutions, but maybe I can get some time to sort things out. Thanks, folks.

  • Well, That Escalated Quickly

    Today could have been better. Much better.
