What's making you feel smug today?

You may have seen that another Dweller has pointed out that a strike has interrupted ferry services between My Island Home and the Big Island today.
I was planning to go to a music rehearsal which meant that I had booked a ferry trip with the car for this evening (strike day). As soon as I heard the first mention of the strike date I changed the booking to yesterday instead. I later heard that the ferry company were not taking bookings for strike day or the two previous days (overtime ban in place for those days), but I had acted so quickly that I don't even think the guy who took my changed booking realised that the strike date had been agreed.
As a result of the extra gratuitous day on the Big Island Mr Limey and I was friends and got a few things done. But mostly I feel smug.
PS: strike is for one day only and will not affect anyone's Birthday Bonanza Trips. Honest.

After seeing the video of the ferry sliding into Ardrossan like it was second base at Yankee Stadium, I think they deserve every penny they can get.

Most of ya can get by with catching just the cheek, but some of ya, some of ya can pucker up and dive right in the middle, the brownest, warmest part.

It's hot here too. For Michigan. Weird. We still have snow piles and it's raining like all fury, but steam/fog is rising off the snow

Lost the power 20 minutes ago after much flickering. At least it's well above freezing. I like having power though.

It's right at 30 F here, heavy heavy snow. Power comes and goes, Pete is trying to work from home.

Got a picture from the Jersey mountains west of NYC this morning. Less than an inch of snow.
