Dept. of Getting Back on the Bike

Snowmageddon? Or Snowpocalypse? Hmmm ....

Not compared to the mugging Mother Nature performed on the East Coast just a few days ago, but Chicago and the rest of Illinois are making a valiant come-from-behind effort. We've got 13" 16" on the ground, with more than five hours to go before the blizzard warning is lifted, and we just hit white-out conditions in sections of Cook County. Chicago's apparently the center of this weather system. And also the epicenter. Yay, us!

I'm enjoying the second true day of vacation (my first days of vacation, Friday and Saturday morning, were spent trying to get one last story into my boss on the new NewsGate editorial platform we're using. I shouldn't do that, but I have a new editor - again - and I felt bad not getting as much in to him as possible for while I was gone. So, yeah, real vacation didn't start until Saturday afternoon, although I did escape from the house on Friday.)

Dept. of really late birthdays

Happy Day and a Half Past Birthday, [personal profile] flowsoffire !

I managed to miss your birthday - so I can only wish you Happy Day and a Half After Your Birthday Day! You're a delight to know; kind, clever, thoughtful and talented - from vidding and translation to being able to make me smile even on darker days. Thank you for being out there in the big, wide world, and in my circle of Interwebz friends. May your coming year be filled with joy!
