Well, it's Thursday and we have snow. The prediction is for 'heavy' snow until around noon and then tapering off. The odds of me going into work are slim. It's not that I couldn't make it there this morning, it is the getting home that has me concerned. The storm is to last until tomorrow.
I talked to Verizon yesterday. Several odd things happened. I went into Chat to see if things could proceed with my getting put on hold for 45 minutes to speak to a living human. Surprisingly, 2 seconds after I initiated the Chat, Gary was answering my questions. When I told him I wanted to eliminate Verizon from my life he gave me an 866 number to call. Three minutes after I called, I was speaking to Melinda. When I told her I lived close to a T-Mobile tower, and they have $50 per month internet a door opened. Melinda offered me Internet alone, at the same speed I have now for... are you ready for this? $39.99 a month. You can bet your ass they are not losing money. They are, however, losing subscribers. I Googled it. People are cutting their cable line left and right, at about the same speed moderate Republicans are changing their party affiliation. Don't get me wrong. Verizon still sucks, they're just changing their tactics.
I rode 18.72 miles yesterday!! Took me an hour. I was very well pleased. A little over 100 years ago there was a ferocious battle along the Ijzer Front between the Germans and the Allies. I rode past concrete armaments that are still standing.
