Makes ya wanna think.

ChipWits Recruiting and Snowlocked Cabin

We got some great candidates for both producer and programmer so I shut down recruiting. We are going to take our time talking to them and deciding. I look forward to introducing the new ChipWits team.

Having these great candidates takes a huge weight off my shoulders because I know ChipWits is going to be in good hands.

The last few days have been productive for the Hel’s Bet rewrite. I am reading through a paper prinout – 650 pages! – with a red pen scribbling edits. I’m cutting a lot of dross, which feels great.

The Pad is now snowlocked for the winter! I tried to get up the snow-packed hill once too often:

car-stuck-in-snow

The hill is steep and you have to gun it as you round the corner. Oops.

Brook helped me haul the car out and suggested I might want to give up on the hill for the season.

Good call. Part of the fun of living at The Pad is getting snow-locked and sledging in supplies and sledging out laundry and trash.

I got a great new sledge this year:

It’s deeper and sturdier than my orange sledge from last winter.

I buckled my belly band to my waist and let the dogs out the gate:

Mika pulls me as I pull the sledge

Mika pulls me as I pull my laundry.

It’s 200 yards to the car:

The gentle slope down from The Pad to the car.

When I got back from my laundry run I took the dogs for a walk:

Ogre Island looked grim:

Humans beware! It's Ogre Island.

I love my little slice of Earth.
