ten things tuesday

Ten things:

1.
Action Recommended: Make preparations per the instructions
Issued by: Caribou - ME, US, National Weather Service,
...WINTER STORM WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM LATE WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY EVENING... * WHAT...HEAVY SNOW POSSIBLE. TOTAL SNOW ACCUMULATIONS OF 6 TO 10 INCHES POSSIBLE. WINDS COULD GUST AS HIGH AS 35 MPH. * WHERE...PORTIONS OF CENTRAL HIGHLANDS, FAR EASTERN, FAR NORTHERN AND NORTH WOODS MAINE. * WHEN...FROM LATE WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY EVENING. * ADDITIONAL DETAILS...TRAVEL COULD BE VERY DIFFICULT. PATCHY BLOWING SNOW COULD SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCE VISIBILITY AND CAUSE LOCALIZED HAZARDOUS TRAVEL. THE HAZARDOUS CONDITIONS COULD IMPACT THE MORNING AND EVENING COMMUTE. POWER OUTAGES ARE POSSIBLE. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS... A WINTER STORM WATCH MEANS THERE IS POTENTIAL FOR SIGNIFICANT SNOW, SLEET OR ICE ACCUMULATIONS THAT MAY IMPACT TRAVEL. CONTINUE TO MONITOR THE LATEST FORECASTS.

2. The local news is so terrible, none of the reporters are trained reporters. None have broadcast experience. Some of them cannot read from a teleprompter. It's embarrassing. It's painful. Why do I torture myself by watching?

3. Free pizza tastes better than pizza I pay for. That's a fact. I got a freebie because I had to wait so long for delivery the last time I ordered. Tastes better.

4. I still haven't picked my next knit project. I have several gorgeous skeins but can't make up my mind what I want to whip up.

5. I've been watching a lot of TV and Netflix and Starz.

6. And that means reading has kind of stalled out. I've started a couple of books but just can't seem to engage in them.

7. Tomorrow is a workshop day for my department mates and me. We don't actually have an agenda so it could be a rather long waste of time.

8. Thursday is the storm predicted in #1, so we might not have school.

9. Friday is a half-day with a pep rally in the morning so not much will get accomplished that day.

10. I'm going to try to finagle a shower on Friday. Between school and my lymphedema treatment, there is a possibility that I could have time to sneak in a shower. The things I take for granted! But I haven't had a shower since mid-January and I have to say that sponge bathing is labor-intensive and gross. Definitely one of the biggest challenges of the treatment process is giving up showers.

  1. #3 is so true! Free pizza is my favorite pizza, too. (Likewise free deli sandwiches.)
