(The lady laments):
Just about the same time as last week. Another snowstorm. Like deja vu .
Which is a very good thing . . . .
Somewhere between 9 and 10 inches of snow today. No need for a ruler this time. You can see it two postings ago. 9 1/2 inches. As I was shoveling – again – I remembered last week’s Snow Bear —
But it wasn’t there today.
Missing . . . .
We had had a couple “warm” days this weekend so the snow bear I had made went away. But since I was outside shoveling the same snow from the same driveway, it just seemed like it should be there.
Which reminds me why this snowstorm is a good thing. . ..
And sorry for the dark photos this time.
My laptop and my desktop PC are gone today. Gone like that Snow Bear. And so , too, is all my software for lightening up photos.
The snowstorm made it a dark day today.
Big snowflakes. Dark day.
Dark, dark, dark.
All the bits and pieces of my brain are in my missing laptop and PC. So many times today I wanted to check email – not there – check the news – not there – answer some questions – not there — find a pretty painting I was reading about — not there. Dark.
I do love a good snowstorm. I love having some useful exercise to do. (I wasn’t planning to drive anywhere, but shoveling snow just seems – useful.) I love the beauty that the snow brings, and the geometric patterns on my backyard pond –
Deja vu on watching pond patterns again, I guess. I’d lighten that for you and turn up the contrast. But I can’t.
My laptop and my PC both, AT THE SAME TIME, “got sluggish” to the point of being unusable. My PC was giving me very scary messages like “No operating system found. Press any key to reboot.” Yikes.
I saw it coming. But I delayed taking them in. I couldn’t figure out what I would be doing without them while they were being fixed.
They’re in good hands now. Geeks. Real, genuine, computer geeks. I’m very confident. They weren’t much for small talk but they had a large computer vocabulary. They seemed to appreciate having my computers to work on, like “Oh, boy – an interesting challenge.” At least I hope that’s what they were thinking.
No one could have more affection for my laptop and my PC than I have.
So, I’m glad for a repeat of last week; another snowstorm to distract me, and all the things that come with a snowstorm: fireplace, reading, knitting, hot cocoa, comfort food, and a little fresh air.
Not much else to do. I could write about something serious today, like we shouldn’t rely on computers so much, especially when it comes to voting, like electronic voting where today in Texas the people who cast votes for Trump report that they watched their vote on the screen get changed to another name —
Computers can do funny things to you. But I can’t think about that much now.
My brain is in bits and pieces on someone’s work bench right now.
