February 12 of 12 v.3.0

It's time for another super edition of Chad Darnell's 12 of 12! The idea of course is to take 12 pictures of your day on the 12th day of the month. This month we delve into the exciting day that a Tuesday has produced. The good news (or bad, depending on how you look at it) is that we got snow last night...which created several opportunities for pictures!

8:18 a.m. The view from my back door.
8:18 a.m.

9:05 a.m. Yeah, I should have been at work already. I'm not even to I-70's the overpass in the background, if you see past the snow/freezing rain coming down.
9:05 a.m.

9:56 a.m. See what driving in snow/freezing rain can do to a windshield. I'm only now just getting to my work exit.
9:56 a.m.

9:59 a.m. At this point, I'm already an hour late for work, so I thought I'd treat myself to my newest addiction....a Skinny Vanilla Mocha latte from Starbucks. I only wish it were a drive thru edition, rather than inside the Giant Eagle. It was cold this morning! Brrrr!
9:59 a.m.

11:40 a.m. Filling out my paperwork to participate in the 5 person relay marathon at The Last Chance for Boston marathon this Sunday.
11:40 a.m.

1:21 p.m. Yeah, it's not looking any better out there...
1:21 p.m.

1:54 p.m. The fabulous Samsung Sch-740u. My lifeline. Texting is a wonderful thing! Doh! I just saw that the time on my camera is about five minutes fast! The beautiful baby on my phone is my best friend Kelly's son Eli!
1:54 p.m.

2:23 p.m. Checking out the draft version of this 12 of 12. I am clearly bored at work and rather than waiting until the last minute, I thought I'd do it at work. :)
2:23 p.m.

3:14 p.m. My mid-afternoon snack. White chocolate raspberry non-fat yogurt! YUMMO!
3:14 p.m.

5:11 p.m. What a difference seven hours and a little rain can make! No more snowy/slushy streets....just wet!


8:32 p.m. The south parking garage at Easton. Just finished grading two of the three assignments my students had to complete this week.
8:32 p.m.

9:01 p.m. I got a little over zealous trying to thaw my Smart Ones Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Sundae. YUMMO!
9:01 p.m.

233 - Stamps

My dad had given me some old stamps he'd collected in the hopes I could figure out if they were worth anything. I never did. So if someone out there has any information on whether used stamps are worth anything, I'd appreciate a point in the right direction. :)

185 - Traffic

It took me two hours to get to work today. The road conditions in Columbus were not conducive to getting traffic through the city in a timely fashion... This is I-70 Westbound passing the Livingston Avenue curve.

110 - Snowflake

Several hundred snowflakes embedded in my landscaping...

Did You Hear?

The writer's strike is just about over! I say "just about" because the membership has to vote on whether to continue striking during the ratification process. Union members can be quite fickle and while this strike has gone on for longer than anyone had hoped, I won't believe the strike is over until the votes are counted. And even then, the agreement still has to be ratified. My experience with ratification and unions is that the members will do what the members will do, recommendations of the negotiating committee be damned. While my union membership is only 1800 people, the WGA's is considerably larger so who really knows what will happen.

Whatever the result, I hope the WGA is content with the deal it got. Happiness is often too much to ask, as it's impossible to make everyone happy.

66 - Money

Brand new crisp one dollar bills...

Random Question

Well, maybe they don't need them, but don't you think that some fish might like a bicycle?

My compass and headlight dimming mirror is one of my favorite things about my CR-V. Just so happens to also fill the definition of a 366 theme!

I finally finished one of the cross-stitch designs for Kelly's new baby...just in time for a 366 photo!
