I get up five days a week to drive an hour or more to and from a job that I can't stand. Why?, because I don't want to live "in a van down by the river." Today the Montgomery County Police decided that I needed to donate a little of my salary to them. I was quite startled when officer Barbrady jumped out in front of moving cars on 108 to wave me off the road. 46 in a 30 was his claim. I didn't argue, as I wasn't actually looking at the speedometer when the fearless officer, who was hiding behind a telephone pole pointed his radar gun at me. The fine is $90 and it carries 2 points. I haven't been pulled over in more than 10 years, so I'm going to head to court and take my chances. Fun 'eh. BLAH!
On a good note, Carey is meeting me for lunch today. I'm looking forward to that. Sushi Chalet, here we come!
I looked at January weather statistics for Pittsburgh in recent years, as well as the climate forecasts for this year and came up with what I think will be a good forecast for January 1st. This year is the beginning of a La Nina climate cycle, which means average temperatures and slightly above average precipitation for the Pittsburgh area. I'm also taking into account the recent storm activity and the lake effect snows which have been really cranking over the last few weeks.
I'm going to call for high temperatures slightly below freezing, with a stiff wind from the NW (10-12mph). For the game, more clouds than sun, chance of some sort of frozen precipitation, 60%.
I'm thirty something, married, and am in the process of moving from Baltimore to Phoenix. I currently work in IT, but am transitioning to a telecom voice centered role. This blog is my way of sharing that experience.
