A school bus got stuck blocking the only entrance to our neighborhood this morning and now my wife can’t drive my oldest to school either.

In-reply-to » Big snow day. I think we're approaching 12" in our neighborhood now. I shoveled our driveway twice already and actually broke out the snowblower to clear part of the street by the curb and our mailboxes. It works great when the snow is powdery, but clogs up fast with wetter snow like we're getting now.

Another snowy late November day and it looks like we’re going to be getting at least a little snowfall almost every day this week. Don’t think there’s any danger of not having a white Christmas this year.

Set up the outside Christmas lights this afternoon. We won’t start turning them on for another week or so, but temperatures are supposed to drop a lot in the next week so better to get it done now.

Whelp Hive immediately failed the service/app smell test when it refused to allow me to create an account via email and a password that met their defined criteria. Signed up out of curiosity and to nail down my usual handle, don’t expect to actually use it.

Still a bit sore from Monday’s dodgeball games at work (we have an annual Thanksgiving week event) and I only played in about 4 games total. Some of my similarly aged colleague that were on more successful teams (and played more games) were so locked up yesterday that they questioned whether they will play in the future! As someone who has always enjoyed casual competitive sports this is my main complaint about aging.

Driveway was pretty slick this morning thanks to the snow turning to rain late so I had to break out the salt. I shoveled it twice last night, but my timing was a bit off since it snowed a little bit more after my final pass.

The original forecast was for snow this afternoon, but now it looks like it may be coming as rain. Weird to be bouncing back to much more typical November weather after the early snow and unseasonably cold last couple weeks convinced me it was going to be an early winter.

In-reply-to » The Arc browser is the Chrome replacement I’ve been waiting for Good overview of the new Chrome based browser project that's been in development over the last year. I haven't tried it yet and in fact this is the first I've heard about it, but I'm always interested in browser projects that have a new approach to the web so I signed up to try the service.

@mckinley@twtxt.net I’ll see what I can do. For the record I’m not a Chrome fan either.

@eaplmx@twtxt.net It’s limited release and I’m on the waitlist now so I don’t know yet. At least one person I follow seems to like it though.

In-reply-to » ⚽️ I like what I'm seeing from Ecuador so far. 1 - 0 over Qatar after putting away the penalty. Completely dominating the final third.

[Ecuador 2 - Qatar 0] Second half was pretty boring overall. Ecuador looks strong. It will be interesting to see how Senegal is without Sadio Mane because my revised (but highly fluid) expectation is that the Netherlands and Ecuador will advance out of the group.

Valencia comes off for Ecuador. The men in yellow continue to lead 2 - 0 with about 15 minutes of time left in the game. Qatar has looked a little better this half, but still pretty subpar.

Ecuador leads Qatar 2 - 0 at the half. They’ve completely dominated the game and the hosts are very fortunate to not be down three goals with the disallowed (barely offside) opening goal. I’d love to see a study of whether offside technology advancements and VAR have impacted total goals numbers across competitions.
