"What worries me though and I can't let go of it is why did it suddenly start freezing up this year?"

Three words for you: global climatic change.Weather extremes are more pronounced than they have been in human history, with the exception of 1816. Why 1816? That was the year the 'most dangerous volcano in the world' erupted - Mount Tambora in Indonesia. The eruptive force of the volcanic explosion threw the finest dust over seven miles in the air.

When we're having global climatic change, it's ironic that the ultimate moderator of seasons may eventually be volcanic eruptions. That would be different.

And FUCK ME RAW! The friggin[ weather here is awful. We just got a half inch of ice on the streets this evening. Another half inch before it's over, and roads here are shut down. All alone except for the cat. FUCK! This sucks.

I would just like to say that Fucking bathtub stoppers operated by a lever are the devil's invention. After bailing water for a week I finally decided to pull the apparatus out through the overflow pipe where the lever is located. I hate plumbing! Now the tub drains. Yippy. I'm replacing it with an old fashioned plug on a chain.

Speaking of bathtub drains...
last week my tenants called saying the tub won't drain. Well, the previous owner of the house got real creative when they put in that tub. Suffice to say that if I couldn't get it to drain I would be tearing out tub, floor, walls then cutting into concrete. So making it drain was pretty important. After a solid hour with a manual snake I finally pulled out a metal piece of the stopper mechanism that had traveled 3 feet down the drain pipe and was of course loaded with disgusting hair. My tenant, knowing the tub situation joined me in a loud cheer!

So I guess rather than fuck, this is FUCK YEAH!

Thanks Unjohn. My son works at one and they give a discount to all family members. BTW It's a great fucking job if the owner is a good employer.

Fuck!

Not another one.

Tom passed away at the end of January. A very good friend. I just found out yesterday. DAMN IT! I don't need another kick in the guts at the moment. I have to keep reminding myself almost daily that life HAS no rules, and will kick you when you don't need it and when you do, too! No rules.

"Life is like Chinese downhill. There ARE no rules". I think I said that last year. Fuck.

Thanks, Ygmir, unjon, and moonrise.

Currently snowed in. We got 6" last night, 2" more on the way. I live on a lowest-priority back street, so I wait until the City decides to come back here and plow. I've got plenty of food, the water pipes aren't frozen, and I have a couple of fifths of Jim Beam, a bottle of Martini and Rossi sweet vermouth, and a couple of bottles of wine on the counter. I'm not drinking today, though.

I'm contemplating one of the harder questions of my life. With Tom dead, I'm the only one left to train the young engineers and geologists about trenchless technology. I don't, deep in my heart, know if I'm 110% up to the task.

I'll miss him. He was a friend.

My friend Margie passed away from pneumonia on Wednesday night. FUCK!

She leaves behind a husband, two sons and a daughter. I'm sitting here getting ready to go into high gear to see what I can do to help. What a kick in the belly to end the weekend. FUCK! I'm done crying. For the moment.

Well fuck. I just was informed they are going to close my office. (I guess Yggy this means no more lunches together anytime soon.) So soon I will be commuting to Folsom instead of an easy 7 minute drive to Auburn. This sucks on so many levels. Just the hassle of moving and the upheaval involved blows. Oh well, at least I stil have a job I suppose.
