Snow! In 3D!

October 10, 2009CE: Snow is on the ground in Mpls, and has lasted the first hour or so of sunrise. Most snow is predicted. This may impact my plans for today, but only slightly.

My condo is resurfacing our parking lot, so I have to be out of the garage by 9am this morning. (What, you think I'm normally up this early on the weekend?) We can't come back until Monday, when the surface has settled. Time for an oil change. I'll drop my car off and get picked up by Johanna. We'll have an early lunch.

Toy Story and Toy Story 2 have been remastered in 3D, and are playing as a double feature in several venues. I've never seen either in a theater, and the 3D effects of recent movies such as Up! have been pretty effective. Both movies are short, but together it's a long afternoon.

Then it's back here, where I'll be stuck car-less until Monday. Thanks for all the suggestions about Amigo Car Service (many moons ago). I have to get my football picks in by the time games start on Sunday, and I have incentive: I'm currently in first place, tied with a few others. Four weeks does not a season make, but it's nice to be off to a fast start.
