Off-Topic: Blizzard Coming My Way

There is a blizzard coming my way Friday night through Sunday morning, with the heaviest snow falling throughout the day on Saturday. Heavy snow will be falling at the rate of 1-2 inches per hour, with the possibility of 18-24+ inches total. There will also be gusty winds, thunderSNOW, and white-out conditions. (This also happens to be our first snowfall of the season.)

 

What this means for my new puppy remains to be seen. I guess she will regress to "going potty" back on the training pads.

 

Also, I am expecting an extremely important Intellivision delivery of a very rare item. The tracking says that it will be delivered on Saturday, but I just don't see that happening. Will my package be left and buried, or will it not be left at all?

 

Finally, will I have enough time on Sunday to shovel out before the AFC/NFC Championships in the afternoon? We shall see.

 

Is anybody else in this predicament? Who else out there is about to experience a blizzard?

I was assembling some circuit boards last night... Intellivision. I realized after putting the solder paste on that I was missing one part. I ordered some parts from Digi-Key in MN. I was expecting them here today, but they've only been "picked up" and haven't moved anywhere. In the meantime I put on all the other parts. Now the boards have to wait until the 4 day point (minimum) instead of 1 day. Oh well, the solder paste is still okay so far... .

/no expected snow in southern Ontario.

The boards'll be alright...Just get a spray bottle of flux and give the boards a spurt before you reflow them :D

 

But you can always clean off the paste on the missing component's pads and reflow what you got, then you just got a little rework to do once the part has arrived

A blizzard is defined by snow and WIND. The wind speed has to be 35 mph and greater for it to be considered a blizzard.

 

Yep, and we're supposed to get the strong winds on Saturday, with gusts up to 60 mph. I'm in SE Pennsylvania. Now they're calling for "blizzard conditions" tomorrow, whatever that means.

I hope for an happy ending. Let us know.

 

What's this very rare item?
