Slice of Chaotic Life

The daily life of a celibate middle-aged man.

This past Saturday, winter came, with snow and freezing cold. I am glad it snowed on the night to Saturday, this let people change tires during the weekend. Probably because of this, there were fewer crashes during the Monday rush hours. The first day of snow is usually filled with small crashes and long lines on the roads, but this year it was less than usual.

Before my vacation (the week November started) it was still a bit of sun when I went to work and when I came home. Now it is dark when I come home, and long before sunrise in the morning. The deep of winter is coming. It is too cold to take long trips outdoors, or at least it is no longer good for my health. I even turned down an opportunity to play Ingress, the virtual reality game by Google which is played in the real world using Android cell phones. It maps an imaginary world on the real world, with strange portals and mysterious objects that you have to visit in the flesh in order to complete the game goals. I approve if it can get people up from the couch. But for me now, the couch would probably be safer for my health. In addition to arctic cold, there was also fairly strong wind. (Actually it is cold indoors too, but I manage to keep the home office warm.)
