Misty commute — and fire?

Tuesday, December 11th, 2007

This morning’s commute was very misty. It wasn’t really raining, but there were some rather large drops of water seemingly suspended in the air. Riding through it, the air felt thick and heavy. My glasses became coated with mist and fortunately the terry wiping strips on my gloves worked well to restore my vision. Visibility was poor, with thicker fog than on my ride on Sunday. Fortunately it was warm, in the upper 40s. Campus is getting pretty vacant now as students finish their finals and go home for winter break.

The fire alarms went off at work today and we all went outside for a while. Several fire trucks showed up and firemen entered the building. Either they didn’t find anything at all, or they only found something small. Nobody has said, and I haven’t asked.

That was some kind of excitement.

    strange — our fire alarms went off at work this afternoon too. someone said something about a ‘duct alarm’ — maybe a quality of air issue. Regardless, we returned to work 15 minutes later.

    We are bracing for a double whammy. A pretty good snow storm today, followed Saturday by a Nor’Easter with lots of snow.

    Fortunately Friday night should be clear for the meteor show.

    So, now you know how bad I feel and how much I can relate to your glasses fogging up. 8>)
