(e:twisted), I am working on getting estrip infrastructure ready. We severely neglected the server and host estrip was on, to be expanded on in another post!

Afterwards we went to go eat mexican food at this restaurant called Arriba Tortilla in East Aurora. I thought there was no way they could make regular tex-mex expensive but they found a way by making portions huge but ridiculously overpriced.

I want to make a drone that lets sprays shaming messages on the lawns of people who plow but can't shovel. Some blog shaming is the least I can do. ;)
My dream is to have an website where you can report/document incidents and property owners could be easily fined by the city. It would go along with a program for disabled/elderly homeowners who couldn't afford a service could find shovelers, who would be paid to shovel by the fines. It'd have easy access to location info of users so shovelees could be matched to shovelers, and for reported properties it could pull county tax records to generate fines based on assessed value and frontage.
More than 24 hours after the heavy snow, Sinatra didn't shovel their Franklin Street slum house, but did plow their parking lot and driveway.
Neither did McGuire development, also on Franklin
Just because a building is for lease doesn't mean you don't have to shovel.
Or Elmwood Village Fabrics, although they also managed to plow their driveway.
Cleve Hill Auto piles their lot's snow on the corner of Main, over the fire hydrant and handicapped ramp.
A plow knocked a North Street light off and drives away.
And the stupid Church of the Ascension manages to drive down the sidewalk, heaving the sandstone - and plows our driveway in.
Also the wind blew one of our dormer windows open and split it at the hinges. ;(

Cross country skiing
It was crazy fun and not too cold. I love working to climb up a hill and then speeding down. I wiped out a few times at first but by the end I think I got pretty good. (e:Terry) was freaking fast.
We spent most of the time slithering down the snow snake trail, which is black diamond. Alleghany is real nice in the winter. they even have a shack where you can rent the skis and buy snacks.
I want to go downhill (e:YesThatCasey) but I think I'd hate the mechanical part of it.
Jeremy had an interesting park job in the driveway.

This 360 photo sums up winter in Buffalo - white and dimly lit.
So many deer and their fluffy tails.

Snow Day again
Now it's time for working from home (or programming and Deutsch). I'd still much rather have it be spring and be stuck at work than have another freaking foot and a half of snow.

Sledding at Chestnut Ridge
Terry and I found the best way to go down was on your stomach, so much faster and way more control.
I saw my coworker Karl, who was carrying his kid up the hill. I can't even imagine, I'd be so dead.

Ice skating at Rotary Rink
Skating was super tough with the loose skates and rough ice, but I think we figured it out by the end. Paul tied his laces around the back which made the skates way tighter.
Terry was super good at ice skating just like roller skating. He was was even doing circles by the end (no triple lutzes though sorry).
I'd definitely go again but maybe with skates from somewhere else since these were beat up and so gross (the rental place smelled awful) and smoother ice. Maybe MLK splash pad when its open for skating?
