  1. That's the plus about March snow. And I hate backloaded winter (if you can call what we went thru winter). Highschool spring sports start next week (baseball, T&F, LaCrosse). Bad enough having kids run and compete in 40 degree weather. My son runs the 100m and 4x100. Hard enough to get stretched out at 50 degrees, much less 40. Spring sports shouldn't start till mid April, but then it would be tough get the season in before the end of school.
  2. My wife was in college in Castleton, VT that winter. She said her alarm went off and the guy on the radio said it was -35. She rolled over and went back to sleep instead of walking to class.
  3. You know its a shyty winter when temp talk starts the First of Feb. Usually temp talk is reserved for May-August
  4. That too. My kind of winter. A little mood snow, not much cold.
  5. I hate the cold too. But i hate March and April more. I have less than zero use for those 2 months. If I could leave NE and go south March 1st and return Mother Day, I'd be happy.
  6. I could use a little more sun. This week has been a little too cloudy for my liking. Bring the dews up to 60 would be good too. Its July, not September.
  7. All that’s negated if they don’t turn the ball over. When they turn the ball over 15 times, they lose.
  8. Johnny Most going off on Lambier was the best.
  9. I was over it in 5 days. So was my kid. That no smell thing is weird. I couldn’t smell anything. I mopped the floor with pinesol, couldn’t smell it. Cologne, bathroom spray, you name it. I went to an outdoor event last Saturday and used a porta potty. Nasty thing. I could have stayed in there and camped out no problem. Couldn’t smell shit, literally. I started smelling stuff on Wednesday. Son never lost smell.
  10. Who needs to install? I flipped the switch earlier in the week. Was hot upstairs. And after 2 years, the Rona finally got me. My 80yo mother came up and brought it. Started a dry cough 2 days before she went home. She was her 4 days so I assume she had it before she got here. Anyway, I got sick 2 days after she left. She texted me on a Tuesday that she had it, I was sick Wednesday. Not bad. I’ve had worse head colds. Lasted about 5 days. Son got it, his was the same. Head cold. Wife and daughter were spared. Kinda glad we got it and it’s over actually. Mom is fine.
  11. Then don’t. You’re young. It’ll come back. Hang on till….
  12. Well not really. On paper, yes. In practice, no. It takes months and months. And then you have to document, write up Performance Improvement Plans, and go through a million hoops. I’ve had to fire 3 employees over the years. The last one took 10 months to get the process completed start to finish.
  13. Lol. Have to feed the family. I make way too much to walk. But yea, a lot of the lab folks have talked about “working from home” for about 6 weeks and see how long it takes to get this crap gone when the lab work doesn’t get done.
  14. I work for a pharma company. Lol Anti science is right though. But it’s not us scientists making these decisions. It’s the lawyers and business types. They’ll follow the CDC guidelines as a CYA. If the cdc dropped the color coded non sense, we wouldn’t be doing it. I’m hoping this orange level only lasts a few weeks. Reminds me of the silly terror alert levels we used to have 15 years ago. All it’s doing is driving everyone back home again, except us that have to work onsite because we have no choice. That 10.1 number is what did it. Yesterday it was 9.7 and we were fine. It went to 10.1 this morning and we got the email at 2:30 this afternoon we were back in masks. Oh well.
  15. I’m just tired of the masking. Nowhere else do I have to wear it. I think this time the compliance will be pretty low. Get past security and they’ll come down. I’m not sitting there again 8 hours a day in a mask. Fook that. And the hybrid folks will be gone again. Not like there were many back anyway. This will drive them home again. Mask 8 hours a day? Or Zoom in shorts and barefoot and outside in May/June.
  16. So my 401 is down 200k since Jan ‘21, unsightly’s can now go topless on Nantucket, and worst of all, my company put us back in masks an hour ago. Mandatory. But we can sit together and eat lunch for an hour until we go back in the lab or at our desk. All hybrid employees can use their own judgement as to how safe it is to come in to the office. Im praying we go back yellow soon. It was a great 7 weeks maskless though.
  17. He hates running in the cold. But he doesn't do distance. He does for conditioning, but he's a sprinter. 100 m and 4x100. Its over in less than 12 seconds (hopefully). To sprint you gotta get loose or you'll get hurt.
  18. Hopefully 70 pans out here. Murky and damp here. 53. YUCK The Boys track meet got postponed until tomorrow. He ran last Wednesday in Marlboro. It was 52, gusty and miserable. They got there at 3:30 but didn't run until after 5 when the throwers got through. By then they are all cold and stiff. Times were way off. He usually runs 11.7-ish 100 m, but he was at 12 flat. Everyone else was slow too.
