Snow day

  1. Busy, busy, you are!

    We've only got six inches of snow this evening. Not sure if we are supposed to get more snow overnight, but I could always just work from home, as long as my internet connection is active.

    How many ice cubes should I flush to get that to drop out too?

  2. So doing both will *prevent* snow days, you say. Good to know, as snow days are dreadful in Seattle, and usually consist of inadequate amounts of snow for any recreational purpose, ice-rink roads, and crabby children cooped up all day. Augh!

  4. In the suburbs of Chicago we have only had but a few inches yet this year. I would venture to guess that the total is less than a foot. But I am wearing my pajamas now so let's see what happens.

    That "Silver Surfer" is a bute by the way. And I can't wait to see those manuals. As a Smith Corona man this should be very interesting for me!

  5. The Smith-Corona 88 manual has already been scanned by Alan Seaver: download here.

    I'll post "tips to typists" soon.

  6. Northeast Indiana got a total of 5" yesterday and just a couple more overnight. Roads were cleared to pavement, although I did look out the window no less than 3 times just to make sure I wasn't calling in to work remote.

    I think I need to copy-cat and pull down that old typing manual that came with my Selectric purchase. There could be some gems in there...

  7. My 2011 WAS off to a good start until I found out that you found a QDL in a thrift store.

    *takes a ten minute walk to clear head*

    Okay, I have decided to suck it up and be excited for you. Nice find.
