Never mind what I said ten days ago; now we’ve got quantifiable amounts of snow — enough to cause idiot drivers to crash their cars and enough for me to shovel. Yes, me, shovel. It went well enough yesterday, though my back began to ache a bit by the time I finished the front walk. My mistake was then to go get the mail: before I even arrived at the post office my sacroiliac joint was imploding. Walking back was an exercise in fighting through the pain. Even so, that profound pain abated after five minutes of sitting down. Noted for future reference.
I’ve been looking for railroad blogs lately, whether they’re about the models or the real thing. I’ve found a few so far. Dogcaught features railfan photography from the Pacific Northwest, which appeals to me; Trainblog’s focus has recently been on the San Francisco Bay area and Amtrak. The Australian Railway Blog, which has been dormant for a while, features photos of neat Australian motive power. I’ve come across a few others, but they weren’t as good. I’ll keep looking, and post results here. Recommendations welcome.
Some quick site updates. The photos page has been redone to match other recent redesigns. The “Projects” link on the top menu bar now leads to mcwetboy.net, the front page of which I redesigned last week. And there’s a new RSS page that acculumates all my various RSS feeds; it turns out there’s a lot of them. RSS auto-discovery on this site has been tweaked as well: only the McWetlog’s pages will have the auto-discovery link to its RSS feed; other pages may have nothing or their own specific feeds (as an example, at the moment Photos has my Flickr photostream for its RSS auto-discovery link).
