It’s been a while since I blogged about anything steno-related, so here goes. (I bet those of you who followed my blog specifically for the steno posts are fed up with me inundating you with all the food reviews and weekly photo challenge pictures.. well, too bad :p).
On this snowy day where Mother Nature brought us upwards of 5-10 cm of snow (that wet white flying stuff that gets stuck in your wheels) during the night, I had a reporting job scheduled for the next day. The job itself was fine, ending up sitting for only 20 minutes despite having been scheduled for 2 hours. Score! The panel members and counsel were very friendly and considerate and easy to talk to. Another score!
The intention of this blog post is to talk about the snow. I found it so cumbersome to drag my steno equipment luggage carrier through the unplowed sidewalks and intersections. How do you seasoned reporters who work in snowy conditions travel with your steno bags? Can you give your steno carrier ‘winter boots’? Can you spray it with some waterproof substance so that the water droplets from the melted snow won’t creep into your steno gear? Better yet, can someone invent some kind of hovering device so that all your equipment follows behind you so you don’t have to lift a pinky to carry all that to court? Let’s talk! 😉
*If you haven’t noticed already, this was a very tongue-in-cheek post about winter conditions and steno — I’m really not complaining about it at all .. Or am I? 😉
