it's that time of year again

Seattle area just got its first major snowstorm. Between the sheets of ice on the road and the persnickety ABS on my Toyota, the drive home from dinner was extra-special fun.

However, for you folks, what matters will be the variously encumbered tree branches positioned over the powerlines leading houseward. We had one power fluctuation already tonight. Oddly, alberich (where the MOO server runs) managed to stay up throughout, but all of the other machines including the firewall and the DSL modem had to reboot; hence all of the dropped connections.

Anyway, expect other interruptions; this cold spell is apparently going to last at least a few days. The school district has already decided to punt on tomorrow.
