Kathy -- Second place is still pretty good.
Hunter -- my sediments exactly.
Kathy -- Was it a warmer than average day for your area today? We enjoyed a beautiful sunny day in the northeast.
Sorry -- got involved in the book -- pretty close to freezing all day, with a bit of new snow.
Hmmmm.... snow. That would be welcome.
Good stuff, although the stuff that fell in early November is finally melting now.
It's such a rare event here, plus it hs been so hot lately that we need the colder weather.
Kadue -- I've had enough snow for one winter. Around here the snow tends to melt and then it refreezes overnight leaving ice all over everything. It makes it hard to walk around outside and I have to chip ice off my car in the morning.
One thing we don't see much of is snow blowing across the road. This seems to happen a bit in the Rockies.
The worse we generally get is heavy rain. At the moment, the town that I went to school at is without power and has water running down the streets.
Kadue: A little over a year ago, my area was flooded. It knocked out long-distance phone service across a couple of counties for a couple of weeks, because the telephone exchange was located on the banks of a river. The US Army was very concerned because they had classified equipment in the basement. They had soldiers watching the building. You don't realize how dependent you are on technology, until it's gone.
I know, especially when you're in the middle of a conversation when the power goes.
Something no one realized is that stores have computers which use telephone lines to order merchandise. All of the grocery stores in my county had nearly empty shelves by the time phone service was restored. Some people even took the time to drive, to other counties, to buy food.
I've been lucky that I've always missed any local disaster.
G'night, folks -- nice chatting with you.
Good night, everyone! I need my rest.
Ahh Pep Band. I have so many memories from basketball games and also freezing my butt off at football games for marching band. I remember a few years back when I was in 8th grade and our girls basketball team won state. My sister was called by the band director to call up everyone in her section to tell them to come to the square at one with their instruments and that they were going to play for the girls. I got to do it the next year, they got second, and the band was given a notice on Friday to be at the square on Sunday to welcome home the girls. What fun times I had in band.

Welcome to Starbucks, Beafet. If you don't like coffee, would you rather have a hot chocolate? Kadue makes awesome hot chocs.
Have you seen the movie that goes with the book "Left Behind". I'm wondering because my roommate is a big fan of the books and wants to see the movie but I heard it wasn't good at all.
The lit section tends to be quiet during the day but will liven up at night (board time).

I was so right earlier. We did take notes in Econ.
A lot of you wrote that "The Diary of Anne Frank" was the saddest book you had ever read. I haven't read it since I was about 12. I'm not sure I fully comprehended it at the time. I wonder how I would feel about it now if I went back and read it (which I think I will). According to today's news, new pages of the diary have been released.
