Another Snow Day

After taking a look at the street in front of the house, and recalling the up-and-down hills on the bus route before it gets here (along with the fact that the bus never showed up at all last time after a smaller snowfall). I decided to call in and stay home.

This time I had enough warning not to set the coffeepot timer, and just left it set up to turn on manually when I was finally ready to wake up for good.

Mostly, I've been systematically re-washing a bunch of T-shirts. There was a problem with the washer that caused it to deposit some kind of white residue (probably soap), which is a problem for black T-shirts; rejiggering the drainage line and cycling it with a gallon of vinegar seems to have fixed it. Just to be sure, I started each load with hot water and ran the hot water flow into a cup of (about half the suggested amount of) soap to get it properly dissolved, then switched to warm or cold water and let the tub fill before adding the laundry.
