covid / school 

apparently about 1/8 of the students at our elementary school were out sick yesterday. 6 confirmed student cases, 4 staff cases, and dozens of kids home sick with no word on whether it's covid (including ours ofc).

last i looked, the case rate and the positive test rate are both still climbing here. maybe if we really do get dumped on by this storm, it'll pump the brakes.

Tony Hawk's Bro Scaper (personal grooming tool)

unjust and despicable to say "you're going to get a lot of snow" and make me wait All Weekend to find out if i really do.

gimme the snow gimme the snow gimme the snowwwww

please join me in a sensible chuckle at my expense: i just found myself shocked at how productive i've been today, before realizing that for the last two days i did nothing but lie around watching tv. maybe... Maybe rest is good!?

covid / school 

remote study day for our school system tomorrow because too many staff are out sick.

they still think we'll be back in person on Wednesday after the MLK Day break... i'll believe it when String Bean is out the car and in the building

Historical mineralogy reference digitized 

A project to convert an older reference to something accessible to all with an internet connection.

"British Mineralogy and Exotic Mineralogy comprise 718 illustrations by James Sowerby in an effort to illustrate the topographical mineralogy of Great Britain and minerals not then known to it. Sowerby’s plates are some of the finest examples of hand-drawn mineral illustrations ever created."

Seems like it must be a flu, I guess. But the kids are both still home until String Bean's PCR test comes back ugh

im well on my way to recovery today, so of course my wife is now about where i was on Tuesday - miserable and can hardly get out of bed

Whoooaaa they're saying we might get 1-2 *feet* of snow over the weekend!? That'd be the biggest storm in my memory in this region.
