Maybe the Last of the Snow

A bit after midnight last night, Lisa said we should open Christmas presents. She presented me with a wrapped package that she said was from Kuma Bear -- warm socks. It's a sign of my age (and of the weather here) that I'm perfectly happy with packages of socks. I gave Lisa a box of assorted videotapes with which she was very happy.

The weather forecast says that starting tomorrow, it's going to warm up slightly and start raining instead of mixing with snow. It's snowing right now, however. I continue to spend my holiday mostly resting, although I also continue to fight with the hard drive that I'm trying to clone. I tried running CHKDSK on it -- as a non-boot drive -- and even in Safe Mode, it still says that it can't complete the job. Darn it, I really don't want to have to go through yet another bare-metal Windows installation.

I left Lisa this morning trying to sleep. Her tinnitus is starting to flare up again, which makes trying to sleep even when exhausted a chore, and makes what sleep she does get quite literally restless as her ear keeps waking her up. With not a whole lot left to do here on the computer, I think I'll simply shut down and go see if she wants to get out in the snow before it turns back into rain and leaves us with a week of cold slush.

I wish everyone a safe and restful holiday of choice today.
