Those are both squiggles here. Show as degree symbols in Opera and Avast browsers. It must be a Firefox thing.

I wish the damn character map in Windows was easier to use. It could be Arabic or Laotian, but it's hard to tell without a bleedin' microscope.

Yesterday evening on the way home from work you'd hardly know what had just happened this past week, apart from a few remaining patches of snow that haven't melted because they're in shadow.

This morning I turned off the heat, removed the extra blanket, and wore short sleeves.

The only remaining issue is our boil water notice. The local MUD website hasn't been updated since Friday morning so I suspect whoever is in charge of the web page took the weekend off. I just hope the repair crew didn't as well.

No idea when I'll get water back on at home. Whenever a plumber can get here and fix all the leaks. We have water at work, and full pressure, but still the boil notice so we can't make cider. I can only carry home about a gallon each day in my backpack. It's more than I use for tea and hydration, but not enough for flushing and barely enough to rinse any of the dishes I've been (re)using. But I have built up a small reserve, which will be added to today and tomorrow, although it's killing my back and shoulders. I have to work today and tomorrow, which would usually be my weekend, but I've asked for, nay demanded, Wednesday off to cook and shop, before working my usual Thursday to Sunday.

Over here we would end up with standpipes in the street or water tankers as a temporary measure if lots of people were cut off...
So you wouldn't have to go so far to collect water.

It turns out I don't have to work today or tomorrow, nor did I have to today, which I didn't find out until I got there. That's going to put a dent in my water-collecting. At least I managed to get another gallon this morning during the 45 minutes I was there.

No, that's not right.

It turns out I don't have to work tomorrow or Wednesday, and didn't have to today either.

I think the fog yesterday morning must have been the thickest I've ever seen here in Austin. As usual, it got thicker as I travelled east on the way to work, and when I got there (which isn't far from the airport, by the way), the visibility was barely a couple of hundred yards. Then the temperature started to rise and it became one of those days we get around this time of the year where it's incredibly humid and warm but all the surfaces at work are still relatively cold, so condensation builds up on everything, especially the floor which becomes incredibly slippery. Glad I didn't have to work the forklift.
