Keeping with tradition, I’m running a contest to guess when the snowpile at work will melt. Truthfully, though, I have been a poor blogger of late (writing and reading), and my mind is on Spain not on fiber-related things. Which means I have no idea what to offer up for prizes. But it’ll be something! In the past it’s been spinning fiber, yarn, donations to your favorite charity (unless it’s one I object strongly to).
There will be two winners. One randomly drawn from the guesses. And the one who guesses most closely the date. If there are two on the same date, I’ll randomly pick. If there are two equally close, I’ll chose the one that guesses the date just before vs just after it’s all gone.
There it is in all of its patheticness this year. It was not a good year for snow, so we didn’t get the ginormous pile we usually do. Typically the snow is out to the right into the field at least three times further than it is here.
Down by the Arsenal, Kennebec River. First wearing of the Maine Forest Service hat I got at the xmas party. Fashion plate, I know.
This is something of an experimental post, as it is from the ipad. I managed last night to load photos onto the ipad and get them to flickr, but I forgot to re-size them (kb wise), so they are the standard size and won’t load on this page as fast. Next time I have to remember to use that app I got to re-size the photos…
I have a bluetooth Targus keyboard, so that makes posting possible as I can use the up and down arrows to move between lines in this tiny window. Otherwise, it’s a crapshoot, because when you touch the screen, the whole page moves, not just the small window.
Since I’m leaving for Spain in a couple of days, I’ll take guesses on this snowmelt date (the date it is ALL GONE… meaning no ice or anything at the base) until the comments automatically close. I think they close after two weeks.
Is anybody even reading blogs anymore? Is anybody reading my blog anymore? Or are we all taken in with the seeming immediacy of Facebook?
