Snow and Ice

This is my desk, used as a "standing desk".  It is on castors so that I can follow the heat in winter and angle the screen to minimize reflection.  The long cord is the power supply and the modem cable, long enough to move the desk anywhere I need it to go.  Everything is on  the cart, the computer sits on the CD shelf, the printer below, and everything else is placed for easy reach.  It is a jerry-rigged affair, but it works well fo me.

Well, it is always something, isn’t it!

Today was to be a day of domestic activity. It began with gathering ingredients for Oat Cakes, only to be interrupted by the ringing telephone. It was a call with a rather desperate invitation to work, immediately, as soon as I could get there. After jumping into and out of the shower, clearing a foot of snow off the car, driving on extremely dangerous snow covered roads in the freezing rain, being forced off the road twice by oncoming traffic that insisted on driving down the MIDDLE of the road, I arrived safe and sound to work for three hours. Everyone else but one person had called in to say the roads were too bad to get there!

I made it back home safe and sound, travelling at less than half the speed limit the whole journey. I have to admit that I feel quite capable of driving when the conditions are truly awful; it is just that I intensely dislike driving in bad weather.

The roads are not to improve tomorrow as more snow, freezing rain and ice pellets are on the way. Warmer weather has brought us an entire array of miserable conditions.

By the time Attila had arrived home this evening the Oat Cakes were baked, as was a Pumpkin Loaf.

All is well that ends well I suppose.
