"Heavy mixed precipitation expected. Plan on difficult
travel conditions. Total snow accumulations of 3 to 6 inches
and ice accumulations of up to two tenths of an inch are
JUST IN TIME.
i only planned to spend 20m on a tire swap, but it's a balmy 60F out before a long winter storm is due to settle in, so i took a few hours overhauling a bunch of stuff i've put off on colder days. back on my old knobblies, tuned brakes and replaced worn pads, adjusted headset, cleaned the chain, etc. gotta get ready for #vikingbiking!

1 to 3 inches of snow forecast for tomorrow i sure hope I get paired with someone for shoveling!!!
The word "initial" is about 43% the letter i.
That is all. Continue about your business.
signed up to do volunteer snow shoveling for disabled/elderly in my neighborhood! i love shoveling but our landlord does our property so i gotta burn off this shoveling energy somehow 💪☃️
i'm in a reflective mood, so here are two pieces of writing from the past year that i still stand by and feel good that i got them out:
https://spray.no-leverage.com/highballing.html about fear and rock climbing
https://spray.no-leverage.com/today-20170901.html about how i've felt existing in the current social/political environment (includes references to current events and stress responses)
they were both extremely raw pieces for me to write at the time.
Pondering starting #GetOnOurLawn for people to share ideas and requests for making the fediverse a nicer place for newbies to hang out in.
My first idea is:
Don't go into a stranger's mentions to trash anything, especially if it's unrelated to what they said in the post you're replying to. So like, if someone says "ooo Mastodon is so nice!" DO NOT reply like, "Twitter is a wanky trashfire, amirite?"
by that i mean i have to be awake in five hours ti catch a bus to the airport goodnight
I'm getting on a plane tomorrow!
slamdance is out of candy i need to take it home to find more!!!!
(there is no ingame mechanic to enforce this, it's entirely on me, i am just a Sentimental Fool)
