My Snowblower is Going to get a Lot of Use

Bad Erie WeatherWe're paying for the fact that most of December was about 50°, I think. This isn't a promising looking weather chart, and I can't say I'm particularly happy to see all that Apple-designed snow flitting about in my Dashboard. It may be well-designed snow, good-looking snow, but it's still a lot of freakin' snow.

I'm still enjoying the kick I get out of using the snowblower, at least. I watched the guy across the street spend 15 minutes just blowing out the snow in front of his mailbox (and into the street, no less). His snowblower stalled out no less than six times. Ouch.

No, I don't blog about cats, but I guess this is just as bad.

P.S. Transparent PNG screenshot with a CSS background color captured with a standard shift-cmd-4, space bar combo. I really wish the "escape" key would work when you've entered screenshot mode. Instead I find myself holding ctrl down to put the image on the clipboard, then re-issuing the keyboard commands to effectively "escape" (when I meant to hit shift-cmd-3 instead of -4, for example). Seems TypeIt4Me may be at fault there.

  1. I've found that just clicking somewhere without dragging the mouse will effectively cancel the screenshot (i.e. it won't take a 0x0 pixel screenshot).

    Yeah, I do that too. The control key is my safety, though, in case I accidentally drag to create a tiny rectangle while I'm in the act of clicking.

  3. The Cleveland area has a similar situation 🙁
