Siberia is starting to sound good...

I'm a fan of snow and cold weather usually, but at the end of April after the winter with the heaviest snowfall in recorded history in Cleveland, OH, to have more than an additional foot of heavy, wet snow is really a bit much.  On the bright side, the list of world temperatures in our newspaper shows that no major city on the list is as cold as we are.  Yakutsk, Siberia is close, but not quite as cold, and Reykjavik, Iceland is practically balmy in comparison.  Sigh!

They do say it should stop snowing by tomorrow, although it shows no signs of letting up yet.

Gary - Ah, brave man. I haven't looked for Notes jobs in a long, long time, but there are several big companies who do Notes. I'll see what I can find and if I find anything out, I'll e-mail you.

Thank you from the bottom my my heart Ben!

Oh... Try to stay warm! When I moved away from Oregon in May of '99 we still had 209" of snow on the ground... (Not 20.9 but 209!!!) so I guess you could say I'm used to the snow and cold!

Thanks again!!!

Gary,

If you move North from NC, you need to send your current job my way:-)

Chris -- I'd be happy to, if it gets to that point! This is a wonderful place to work and the people are great -- too bad I can't telecommute!
