Ice pellets, revisited

About 4 inches of ice pellets fell. The world looks like it is covered in snow, but it has neither the dense, fluffy beauty of snow, nor the glitter of a good ice storm. Instead, it's oddly entertaining, while extremely difficult to shovel. When it falls, the little ice pellets all bounce off of each other. They're little things, maybe 2 mm in diameter at most. And because the fallen pellets are so dense, walking on them is almost like being Legolas on a snow drift, as C. commented this afternoon.

Although you probably couldn't tell from my morning post, I was feeling fairly optimistic this morning, but the day lived up to the post, not my hopes. The professor I TA for can't teach the final class, since he has a funeral to go to. Latin tutorial was particularly frustrating, especially for grammar. I don't mind not knowing vocabulary as much as I do the grammar. I ought to know all the grammar already, whereas with the words, I have the fun of finding entirely new ones. I went to a very good talk this afternoon, but afterwards everyone asked intelligent and insightful questions which left me feeling as if I should have been able to ask some too, or at least think some original thoughts, but my mind simply wasn't up to it. Lastly, I came home and was frustrated by the difficulties in shoveling ice pellets welded together by a modicum of freezing rain. Happily, the evening was been much better.

    I removed ExpenseClam from Google Play store for new purchases. It's still available for those that previously downloaded it, but I've decided to start working on the next generation of it,…

    What happened to Expense Clam? It's no longer available on Google Play. I've been using it for years and it's brilliant. Now I run my company I've put it up against other expense apps and it shines…
