This Space for Rent

Not exactly sane…

setenv SNOW "Almost too much for me"

… but we needed to get paper baking cups, so I had to go to the store and get them despite the foot of snow on the ground. Even with the mountainhack’s Nokian A10s I was still sliding all over the place (too much snow to ride on the sidewalks, so I had to ride on the sheet of ice left by the busses) on the way to and from the store (and fortunately I got there soon enough after it closed so I could beg my way in. Yay for New Seasons!)

I’m not seeing Portland getting back into the regular routine by tomorrow (it’s supposed to stay below zero for the next 3 days, so there’s nothing making the snow actually melt except for warmth from the ground, which means that there’s going to be a lovely sheet of ice under the snow when it starts to actually melt) or friday.
