Grandma Jill is awesome. I was feeling pretty mopedown about not being able to play a zoomquest with P & L on Tower Heights, and she said I could watch something with her on her room's wall. I said Mom and Mom Sirti said I couldn't play anything, and Grandman Jill said we'd be watching not playing. She picked out The Princess and the Pirate, which she said is a remake of an old 20c non-interact. I prefer interactive stuff but this was pretty good. Lotsa swordfights and funny lines.
I want to make a Rodent of Unusual Size avatar when I play TH again!

PI day at school. I got out of phys ed because of my arm but still did chorus. Told Lori and Phil about how I broke it and why I hadn't been online. They thought it was pretty cool. Told Miss Hsu about writing my diary, and she thinks that it's a great idea and that if I can keep it up it'll go towards part of my creative writing credit. Yay!

A heat inversion started last night. It's about 18c outside right now and the snow is melting everywhere. Hope the basement doesn't flood again.
Forgot to take my pain meds and my arm hurts, waiting for them to kick in now.
Want to talk to my friends.

So I broke my arm. Not my right arm, or else this would be really hard to read. While Grandma Jill was napping I got the ladder from the garage and propped against the back of the house, and climbed up with the broom and started trying to push the snow off. It was heavy and wet, not the light fluffy stuff, and when I started shoving some snow to the right of me, the ladder kinda tipped the other way and fell.
I grabbed the rung of ladder and held on, I don't know what I was thinking. The top of the ladder hit the breakdown box and my arm sort of bounced off it before I got dumped into the snow, so that's how it broke. It HURT.
I hit the 911 button on my phone and E-Services sent a hovercraft ambulance. I should have gone inside but it hurt so much I just sat there in the snow and cried. The EMTs said I could have died because of the shock and hypoth the cold, but I was okay once they got warming blankets around me and my arm set.
They woke up Grandma and she we

Hi again. I'm writing this by flashlight, which makes it feel really mysterious. We got hit by a bad snowstorm yesterday afternoon, the second one this season. There's a meter on the ground already and more coming down. The power grid cut out two hours ago and the solar panels are covered in snow of course, so Mom and Mom called to say we had to shut everything down to conserve power for the heat. Grandma Jill says that why her family used to have gas heating, but gas got way too expensive after people's babies were born with defects after all the chemicals got into the ground water.
I'm watching Grandma while they do their thing at the Relief Center, same as usual. The weather service just said the snow should stop in an hour or so. I'm going to try to get the ladder and clear off the panels so we can have power again.

Sorry I didn't write yesterday. Had to finish writing an essay for school, since December Break ended yesterday. The snow on our street hasn't been plowed yet so we had a virmute class session with Miss Hsu, instead of everyone meeting at school for Personal Interaction.
Grandma said when she was my age they still had to go school four times a week. But she also said that virt teaching wasn't as good either. Not sure if a live teacher is that much better. Miss Hsu can get pretty boring, and she doesn't understand when I know something already or need help on something else.
Grandma Jill also said that when she was a kid Summer Break was two months long. It had something to do with kids working on farms before the government passed labor laws. I can't imagine two whole months with no school. How could kids remember what they were learning, especially without a phone or deskcomp to keep up with stuff?
I think I like just getting a week off every couple of months.
