It’s weird how most weekends I’m THRILLED to get to stay in all day and watch movies or mess around online, but now that I don’t have a choice but to stay in and wait out the storm, being inside is driving me nuts! When the rain let up for a bit this afternoon I went for a walk around the ‘hood. I haven’t used my dSLR since the trip to Maine so it was good to dust it off again.
For the last few days I’ve really been missing the whole buzz of working in a newsroom and being able to sort of channel my energy around events like this into something productive. I’ve had all sorts of radars, streams, feeds, etc. running on my laptop non-stop, mostly because I’m a bit of a weather nerd (have I mentioned my love of snow and storms before?), but also because I miss the thrill of reporting that news. Ah the good ole days of being at The Cornell Daily Sun. But then I remember that most days in a newsroom are pretty standard and events like this are more the exception than the rule. Maybe when I retire I’ll become a freelance photojournalist.
