dead wombat


Woke up @0600 in excruciating pain; staggered out to living room for Percocet and antibiotics after which I lay around in a stupor for a couple hours before doing breakfast, bandaging my legs, and heading for work. Bandage on new infection site already soaked through. :(

great, more snow

Office closed at 7:30 PM today because the snow held off until 5:30 and then started coming down like bezoomny. One of the tax pros was kind enough to give me a lift home, which was very much appreciated because of the drainage referred to in the previous post.

All this drainage is causing the swelling to go down, which is all good. Be interesting to see if we open the office tomorrow; we're supposed to get 4-6" tonight and another 3-5" tomorrow (with some sleet in there somewhere) which is going to make getting in to work tomorrow interesting, since they haven't really done that great a job of clearing the sidewalks around here.

Ironically, I was starting to read Flynn, Niven & Pournelle's Fallen Angels when all this crap started falling out of the sky. Done now, and I heartily endorse the notion of throwing another log on the fire!
