Lousy Smarch Weather…

Actually, it was rather nice today. Bright & sunny, not too cold, and no snow. Well, no new snow. It hasn’t snowed in a few days, but I still had to fire up the snow blower. The city crews were kind enough to bury the end of the driveway in a foot of snow and completely block the sidewalk. Smarch is when snow falls only where it’s in your way. At least I made it out into the sun for a little while.

Speaking of getting out into the sun for a while, Saturday was the Polar Bear Plunge. I (and about 500 other people) helped raise $100,000 for Special Olympics Minnesota by jumping into a frozen lake. All in all, it wasn’t so bad. I think it was far colder standing in line waiting to jump than actually jumping in the water. Getting out was pretty rough, too… the shore was awfully slippery. I’ll know better next time. If there’s a next time.

Ah, who am I kidding? I’m dumb enough to do that again. I just need to find a few suckers to sign up with me and call it a team.

One little bit of good news today: I got a call for a job interview on Friday. It wouldn’t be a very glamorous or high-paying job, but it would be a lot of fun. We’ll see what happens.

That’s it for now. With the couple of exceptions noted above, the last few days have been pretty uneventful. I think I need a little more regular, a little less decaf. It’s far too easy to slip into a gray haze of apathy on these chilly mornings.
