Frank's Sketchbook Entry of the Day
February 08, 2020
We got a reasonable snow dumping yesterday. Probably 8-12 inches of snow.
Once the snow let up and they got the tractor-trailor truck that had gone
sideways and blocked the highway moved, I decided it was safe to go to the
store. But first, I had to brush the snow off my car. There was quite a
bit. My hands were feeling cold about halfway through, so I decided I
should take a picture to document how much snow (and to take a break).
Note that the windows are still all iced up. It rained a lot the previous
night then shifted to freezing. By the time I had everything cleared,
my car had warmed up and it was easier to get the ice off. The apartment
maintenance people had used a snow-blower to clear a footpath in front of
the cars, and one right behind the cars, which also helped. And for those
who live in warmer climages, the thing lying sitting on my windshield is
the snow brush/ice-scraper tool.
In the full disclosure category, we had some pretty cold weather in November
and then this snow yesterday, but really winter has been pretty mild,
hovering around freezing, so any little dusting of snow we get winds up
melting the next day. This sort of snow used to be the normal sort
of winter and would stay around. Also, I have the
full resolution picture for those
who are curious.
I tend to doodle. Over the years, I've accumulated lots of random
sketches of things, sometimes people, sometimes things, and sometimes
just abstract lines. The basic idea on these pages is for me to slowly
scan in highlights from my collection of random quick doodles. I also
am providing a place where I can explain what it is or what motivated
it or perhaps some reason why I'm not to blame. With the sketches of
people, their name may be hand-written, or there might be a talk title
provided, but I will tend to avoid providing full names. I don't mind
if people know who they are, I just don't want them coming up on search
engine hits, since that might be a bit rude.
Note that the images are PNGs with transparency. Mozilla and Firefox
properly render them. Safari too, I think. Internet Exporer doesn't.
I don't care.
