A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

"Very small amounts of styrene can leach out of polystyrene products and into food, especially under high heat. Therefore, avoid using foamed polystyrene containers for heating food, especially food high in vitamin A, which can add to the leaching effect. This includes such food as cheese pizza, carrots, and instant oatmeal. Hot liquids, especially tea, may also cause some leaching. Very high doses of styrene act as a neurotoxin."

One of the first things I did when DJing at KBOO was break NOT ONE but BOTH of the (restaurant style) coffee pots while doing the dishes late one Friday night. Imagining the poor early morning Bluegrass/Country DJs white-knuckling it without coffee made me feel terrible, so I immediately found replacements at some restaurant supply house and returned them. I was worried it would curse my presence there. Terrible.

@PRB true! Two of the 3 pour-over coffee places in town favor the light roasts, which I'm less fond of, but I have developed an appreciation for them even if it's not my standard brew. Also, I will even drink decaf swill sometimes (I am caffeine-sensitive), just to have a coffee-like hot beverage. I bought a jar of Sanka when I was in JC for marathon last year!

1 cm of snow and 1.5 cm of snow shut down Jacksonville, FL, for 3 days Xmas Eve, 1989. (FL has no deicing or snow removal equipment for obvious reasons). It was a fun day to be a kid...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/14/19 11:13am melinda:

If you don't have snow plows and sand trucks maintaining the roads even a couple of inches can cause chaos, and it makes sense to shut everything down. Several years ago we had a minor snowfall that the road maintainers didn't get ahead of for some reason and all the traffic packed it down into ice. Cars went off the road, a 10-minute commute turned into 45+ minutes, and I even saw one police car crash into another. Madness.
