Christmas Interruptus Answered

Just a heads' up, I'm away for the Christmas break, visiting relatives without a useful internet connection* , so I will be less than my usual ubiquitous self over the next week or two.

However, said relatives may be installing wireless broadband while we are there, so I may be able to pop in occasionally.

The plan is to leave tomorrow morning (the 23rd), so, if we don't speak before then, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

(Thank you for all your kind comments already!)

*I will not sit in a cupboard to use dial-up!

The blizzard knocked out the power, so I'll have internet only as long as my laptop's battery lasts (if the internet doesn't drop before that). Have a nice holiday, Kiteman!

On the bright side, I think there's a film in that, somewhere. Makes me glad that we don't even have a light frost forecast before Boxing Day.

You can actually scorch water when it is in the form of snow, by trying to melt it too quickly in a pan on the stove. I smells awful.

Well, you will have to make sure he doesn't melt now, Frosty doesn't LIKE to be allowed to get to warm :-)

Yes, windy....but cold is when I start wearing more then just a windbreaker outside :-) Cold is when you spit and it freezes before hitting the ground. Cold is when a candle flame freezes and you have to take it inside to thaw it out so you can see again. But it is windy out there :-)

Yes, I did survive. The power went back up later that day, but the internet stayed down for a while. Nine inches of snow. It's all melted now, washed away by rain. :D
