Nov 20 '14 - Thursday Photos
Welcome to another day! Thanks for the e-mails earlier this week. I had already warned Margaret about the upcoming chocolate shortage(s), but I was able to print off the version you sent a link to, so thanks for that!

We got up into the low 50s on Wednesday, and might be even warmer today. Freezing rain due Friday morning, with rain over the weekend. We'll be at the convention in Springfield, so we'll see how that goes. We'll head down this afternoon to set up in the dealers room, which will make things easier on Friday. We plan to have dinner at Ruby Tuesday's (2-for-1 coupon!), so it should be a fun evening.

Not sure if you got a chance to see all this, so I'll leave it up for now... You asked about Verizon: they have the best coverage nationwide of the four major carriers, which is the main reason I (and Consumer Reports) recommend them. They also have really good customer service both by phone and online, for what that's worth. (To me, it's worth a lot!)

Consumer Cellular uses AT&T for their carrier, and I don't have much good to say about that. Their customer service is mostly outsourced to India or someplace similar, and getting them to fix accounting problems is a real pain. Supposedly, Consumer Reports and AARP both really like their pricing structure, so I guess it's up to the individual as to whether they're worth the hassle.

As for Tracfone, I think you can use any carrier with that phone depending on which card/plan you get. You'll probably end up going to a store to get that straightened out, which is about as much fun as it sounds.

A few photos for your Thursday:

The snow is all gone at this point, except for tiny patches in deep shadow. We had a total of 3 inches of mashed potato snowfall on the car, which was pretty and not much of a problem. The experience will hold us until our next snowfall, whenever.

That's it for now. More to come soon; enjoy your Thursday!
