Chapter 324 Cold Front

Sorry for the short post yesterday. Tom was really complaining about long division until I showed him the 1805 Math primer. Maybe long division isn’t so bad, after all. That primer makes the California State Framework (required curricula) look quite lightweight.

My East Coast bookseller colleagues have spent the past 24 hours in an ice storm. Here in the Bay Area, we are due to receive a cold front “directly from Canada” (the words of the weather man). I think that means it must be extra cold. Am I right, Historia? Lows are forecast in the high 20s and highs in the 50s. It might even snow locally, something that hasn’t happened in San Mateo since I was five years old.

The Christmas lights are lit, a fire is blazing in the fireplace, and dinner (bourbon glazed-beef tenderloin with caramelized onions) is sizzling on the stove. We have a few holiday parties to attend this weekend and a basketball tournament for Tom’s team, so it looks to be a fun-filled couple of days. Hope you Easterners thaw out soon, and hope all the rest of you enjoy the weekend!

The view from my office (read: dining room) late this afternoon.

Stay warm and see you in the stacks!

    I wouldn’t know about Snow on the west coast, Chris. As you know, I live on the East coast. And you know I dont live in BC so I have no idea what the weather has been like there.

    However we here in Ontario have just had a few days of sub-zero freezing cold weather, and a LOT of ice, right before Boston and New England was hit with an ice storm. I am reminded of the last ice storm that hit this area. The ice storm of Quebec in the winter of 1998.

    Good luck to California with the cold weather.
