4:43 pm-Ending my work day-finishing up writing a CR. Trying to get this pesky query working-it keeps timing out on rollback segments, or it only returns 55 rows. Got the first tape taped.
Listening to: DN!
5:05 pm-Time to go home-not much happening. Trying to rev up after Christmas. Weekend was pretty quiet-hang out Sat., church Sun., that’s about it. it’s been rainy-most of the snow is gone.
Listening to: Bardo Thodol
2:23 pm-At work-again, I’m the only one here. I worked from home Christmas Eve after seeing the 2 hour delay on the freeways as they cleared off the bumps and ridges. Better to work from home. Today was smooth sailing-except for getting in the parking lot here. OK. Tues PM-looong drive home over the ruts-theere was a foot-high ridge coming off the bridge at the Tualatin river-everyone was crawling over it. Home, kids to bed, made a bike. Weds., home, work, play with kids, last minute Xmas shopping, Erika got mom, I made the 2nd bike. Matt saw mom but was OK with it. Up at 7 Thurs.-not bad. Opened presents, sledded, ate, hung out, super, super tired, to bed. Up, ate, to work, work.

12:06 pm-At work-it’s snowing a little. Worked from home yesterday. I took me awhile to dig out my car and clear a path to the street. The power went out once. Sledded with the boys some. Another snowy weekend. Went out Sunday-started out as freezing rain, ended up as heavy snow. We had 8 inches of snow, 1/4 inch of ice, 6 inches of snow on top of that. They’re saying it’s a 40 year storm. Power has only been out twice, which isn’t bad. The streets are quite bad-ice with chain ridges, ice bumps. Sometimes the path is over the edge, which I don’t like. I can manage, but it’s slow going.
Listening to: nothing-the roads are so bad I really need to concentrate.
10:52 am-At work-it’s starting to snow, again. Kids to school, snow last night, a bit slippery on the way up the hill. Once I was on the main streets, it was an easy drive here. Finished up yesterday-cold here, gas, storage, home. The usual. I’m glad it’s Friday. It is SO tough to go to bed at 1 and get up at 7.
Listening to: DN!, Bjork, Deben Bhattacharya, Drepung Kehor Khangtsen, Peter Gabriel, Marsudi Raras, DN!
10:43 am-At work-it’s starting to snow. Kids to school, easy drive here. Worked from home yesterday. It wasn’t as bad as they predicted.

3:27 pm-Time to go home-early because of the nasty conditions. Busy this weekend-snowstorm, no church, day off Monday. Fun in the snow, cleared a frozen outside faucet. Time to go before it gets worse.
Listening to: KBOO-Interview with Bruce Bickford!
5:01 pm-Thursday work is over-finishing up another bit of the cron->oracle bit. Not much else-chili for lunch, hard to stay asleep last night. Back is still sore. Connected with someone from college.
