Can you see our car? It's very nearly in the center of the photo.So, it snowed. Started around 10am Friday, ended around 11am Saturday morning. Something like 24 inches on the ground, but really impossible to say with the huge drift enveloping the front half of our car. Here Sean is doing some good work.

So I haven't updated in a couple of months for obvious reasons if you've been keeping up with my life. And my updates will be sporadic at best for the next few months. But to tide you over, here's some silliness involving hair. I grew my hair out for 18 months and then cut it off and donated it. How much does 12 inches of hair weigh?

By last night, I was pretty 'meh' on the whole hurricane thing.
Everything in the Boston area was shut down Monday, but it didn't feel
like we got anything more than some pretty strong wind gusts for a few
hours. Power stayed on the whole time. This morning, it turns out we
were just lucky. I saw two downed trees and one downed school speed
zone light signal on the way to work. A few houses down the street
were cordoned off, and a work crew was just arriving when I walked
back on the way home (so presumably, those houses have been
without power for ~24 hours).

If you find yourself on the MIT side of Cambridge, MA some weekend, tickets at the Kendall Square movie theater cost $11, which strikes me as pretty reasonable nowadays. Also, Mead Hall next to the Marriott Hotel, has a cool oval bar and an extensive number of taps, including Gaffel Kölsch which I haven't had in years. Finally, EVOO despite the ridiculous name, does a fine 3-course meal for $42. The pappardelle with lamb bolognese is good, but it comes with a lamb croquette, which is a fried pocket of lamb goodness.

I'm impressed as every year my electronic gadgets become smaller and sleeker. My current computer is a MacBook Air. And, yet, technological progress doesn't translate into carrying less stuff. Sean just left for Japan carrying an Air, a iPad, and an iPhone.
