07:31 pm: More Snow Than We Need
We got five inches here, and the city's schools are closed tomorrow. My curbcut & zebra stripe hadn't been cleared by the shovelers, so I flagged down one of the trucks and they got most of it done. It's warmer and sunny tomorrow, so what's left might melt before I get up. Then they forecast snow for Tuesday and next weekend.

Last night Spirit kept looking at the castle and I gave her a boost to the window. She climbed up to the crenellations and clawed at the carpet on the platform post. Later on, she wanted up again and when she came back, she sat on top of the back of the recliner until I went to bed at least. But during the night, she pooped on the towel. I was hoping it was all getting better.

On Friday, Macmillin (owns Tor, an SFF publisher) offered Amazon a new pricing system for their e-books. Instead of discussing it or saying no, Amazon delisted all the Macmillin books. You could still get them from other sellers on that site, but not from Amazon. And it wasn't just Macmillian's e-books, it was all of their books. Well, this evening, Amazon blinked. The books aren't listed yet, but people are watching.

If Spirit has learned that the towel is a safe place, she'll probably keep going back to it occasionally. And since it was during the night, Junie might have been unintentionally keeping her from going to the pan she likes to use.

Junie was sleeping with me when Spirit yelled, but she could have been out here earlier. I hadn't thought of the towel as a safe place. That makes more sense to me.

That's a lot of snow. Be safe!
Heard about the Amazon thing, too, as of this morning, prices had been raised. And, no, I don't have a Kindle and won't get one, either.

A lot of it has melted today. Tomorrow's is supposed to just be flurries, but we might get a good amount on the weekend, so I'd like this one to be melted first.

Yeah, I like books.
