A bit blowy [Jan. 18th, 2007|08:07 pm]
Douglas Spencer
There seems to have been a lot of weather today.

Today I've had a day at the server farm, mucking around with the systems that look after the Avdar service, my email, and a small handful of websites. If you were anxious about something I'm hosting on your behalf, I've stopped mucking about with it now, and it should be stable until I have another play late next week.

The server farm lives at the very very opposite end of the M3 motorway from me. That meant that this morning I drove about 70 miles through almost solid rain and howling gales, and this evening I drove about 70 miles through lane closures, vehicle repairs and carriageway debris. It was the wrong kind of entertaining.

Other people on my friends list have had lots of weather too. I see that some of you have had to make alternative arrangements when your journey became impossible -- I hope no-one found themselves in an irretrievable situation.

I'm home again now. Best of luck to the rest of you.

Dad rang Mum at 4.45 to tell her that leaving Warrington was impossible at that time. Dad rang Mum at 6.30 to tell her that leaving Warrington was still ill-advised. I'm not sure if he's home just yet.

Mum, on the other hand, spent the day in a different building due to evacuation. Which is nice.

I've just rang. He's not home and she hasn't heard anything else.

Did he turn up in due course?

Yes, about 15 minutes after I rang home. Warrington was a big car park for most of yesterday.
