No snow days @ Cotsis CAD

Use snowshoes or borrow/rent a snowmobile to make it to work if you must. I've still got class today.

We have a saying in our household when something is either well put, true or just plain funny ... "beautiful, just effing beautiful". You know what pcad, that phrase fits your posting perfectly. Thank you for the laugh. It's been a very trying day for me.

the more important question is are you riding outside in the snow or indoors on a trainer. not whether you are "working" or not.

Actually, I think there's some company - may be Japanese - that's offering modular small nuke reactors about the size of a large garden shed that will power 25,000 homes. You only need to refuel it every 10 years, and you can bury it in the dirt in the backyard. That's on my want list.

All I saw were your old remote control cars. You are selling your ambulance and your fission reactor too?
