I have been thinking about "Weimar Republic Inflation" a lot recently. That was not a good time.
The end of a winter storm here is punctuated with a car wash. The waiting cars to one wash were literally lined down the street and through the parking lot yesterday. Overall, I found people were surprisingly well behaved on their first day out and around after 8 days of ice/snow, freezing temps, rolling power outages, cabin fever, plumbing/heating failures, food shortages (hoarding/supply chain breakdown), etc. The property damage from broken water pipes is astounding.
*Sharing Your Work*
Write late at night
While far out of sight.
Rhyme in the morning
No need for warning.
Paint using digits
Or with acrylic wet bits.
Sing in the shower,
Yes, at any hour!
Sew straight or in a curve.
Macrame often; do it with verve.
Capture beauty on film
Dawn shots of the hills, hmm?
Whatever your art needs,
Done quietly alone, or
Prompted by news feeds,
Share what you can;
It's the "Fediverse Plan".
Record cold and possible snow/sleet/freezing rain forecast here, never a good thing in this land built around hot weather and uncold. #weather
@thor The Windows Vista notes sound like the intro to a horror film for me. They make me shudder at the thought of what will happen next.

This sounds like a well earned and devine reward.
Here is some AI-edited retro data-center porn, though some other type of reels also sneaked into the mix.
