@hober: @girltuesday same here. I think @scituate is blowing through it's whole annual plow budget tonight.
@hober: @hober I hate how the iPhone auto"corrects" its to it's.
@hober: Power went out a couple of times but came right back. Would like power to last long enough for @kirinqueen to charge her phone.
@hober: @sogrady sounds like a plan! @kirinqueen might veto the A-Team though. In other news, the plow's been by twice more. cc @girltuesday

@hober: @jetpen link or gtfo
@hober: @perich That's exactly what went through my head too. cc @joelgrus
@hober: Didn't manage to pick up any brown bread or Fluff while home.

@hober: @Beckiburg ask @kirinqueen for the butterbeer recipe we'll be using tonight.
@hober: Two observations w.r.t the 2011 progress bar tweet: shouldn't it be 99.73%, and shouldn't it be 2010 that's almost done loading?
