bumper to bumper to bumper

December 2, 2003
Working from home today...got a nice early start for an 8:30 meeting, and wham...in 7 1/2 years of New England driving, I have not seen 128 this bad. Well, maybe once, during a evening rush hour blizzard, but that's it. There wasn't much snow at all, but admittedly it was very slippery. 128N 1 mile per hour, absolutely literally (I clocked .3 miles in 20 minutes at one point.)

Pulling off to a McDs/Mobil rest station was a mistake...trying to get out of there, my speed was literally measured in yards per quarter hour. (On the other hand, 128 South was clear.)

Quickies of the Moment
Wouldn't the web be better if you had to dial it up with a rotary dial? I think so. Very retrogeekchic. For more minutes of retrogeek entertainment, check out the pixelated Flash adventures of Captain Lowrez.

Quote of the Moment
"It is only with the heart one can see clearly; what is essential is invisible to the eye."
--The Fox in 'The Little Prince'. Someone posted this quote at work, in the original French and then with the English translation, and I posted a sticky: "You mean like Oxygen?" Shortly thereafter the sticky was removed.
