After the snow abated a bit the roads were snowless, so I drove to the Queen Anne Starbucks for a tall drip and a slice of lemon loaf. yumm.
When I embarked on the return journey to SCCC, I mentally counted my money and realized that I didn't have enough to park there.
So I went in search of a US Bank.
It wasn't till I drove halfway home again that I found a bank with a parking lot.
I'd feel a bit foolish paying for parking in order to get money to park at school.
Anyway, I got back to Capitol hill, parked the Prius in the SCCC's garage and strolled Broadway for a half-hour until class time.
The 2violin concerto sounded much better listening to it there, which is unusual.
I guess I already did the "OMG, this is crap" panic at home.
Then, today I once again dared the outside world.
This time, it was to search for a small quantity of Portland cement for the roof leak.
The theory being that if you sprinkle the stuff on the roof, the water will carry the stuff through the leak and stop it up.
That's sorta what I did with the garage leak on the Q.A. house.
I drove to three different hardware stores but they don't sell it that way any more.
There are all sorts of special mixes for specific purposes but no "just plain Portland cement".
Unless you want a 92 pound sack.
Which I just might go for.
After I got back from that debacle, M wanted to go to her sisters' place to pay back the cost of the ticket to the sewing event.
On the way there we stopped at Coulon Park for some IVAR'S fish & chips and a walk along the waterfront.
Sister wasn't home.
When I got back here, I decided it would be a good idea to test Fidelio and see if the repairs would work properly.
Which, with a touch of adjustment, they did.
So I'm ready to fly.
Also I wanted to get s ride in for the month, at least one a month for the year.
And I also obtained a 15 speed trail bike from a Bro-in-law that need a shakedown cruise.
So here's the specs
Time on the trail............13 minutes
Average speed................6.4 mph
Maximum speed.............26.4 mph
Total odometer miles.....1164
