Economic losses caused by snow? £140, so far.

Broken Asus Eee laptop

It’s snowed a fair bit in the last few days here, and despite dire warnings on the radio and telly, actually it’s been lovely.

However, this chilly weather isn’t without its dangers. You might have read about my new Asus netbook and how it’s helped me get out and about and find new places to work. Since buying it, I feel I’ve got a lot out of it.

Looks like I’ll have to manage without it for a bit now though. Yesterday I took a tumble on some snow and contrived to fall so the bag on my back took most of the impact. That’s the bag which contained my unmarked laptop.

Well, it’s not unmarked any more. The screen’s cracked, the LCD has gone all black and skewiff  in one corner, and it’s going to cost about £140 to repair.

The perils of working on the move, eh? Maybe it’s time to invest in some sort of heavy duty computer. That might make me look cool in the local cafés too.
