Paradise ponders... -4°F ... that's the temperature outside right now, according to my truck's thermometer. We're getting introduced to northern Utah winter in dramatic fashion :)
I just ran down to a local store to pick up a couple of power strips. I'm bringing up some new network gear and I ran out of outlets (despite having three power strips already!). The store opens at 6 am, but there was only one employee there. I found my power strips and went to check out, but couldn't find that one person. The cash register was open, the doors were wide open ... and the one employee was in the storeroom in the back of the store. I had to go drag him out so I could pay for my power strips :) What a place we live in now, where the store employees are completely unconcerned about leaving the till (which contained a considerable amount of cash) open and the goods unguarded!
Of course, it was 6 am, and -4°F out. It would have to be a really ambitious crook to go after that store right now!
