Back in 1978:

My cousin used to stay at our place sometimes. One morning in the summer - folks were at work - we found out you could dial a code on the phone and get a weather forecast and the time. We must've dialed it for an hour. We didn't know each call was 50 cents, either. When the folks got the phone bill, there was a $25.00 charge.

And you weren't going to ask why either. I think there was one for the exact time too.

Our time and temperature was free to call. Mom would let me call it and I thought I was hot stuff. Of course I was 4 or 5 so it WAS a big deal for me to use the phone.

I can't get past the picture. So many fires, car fires, cars in the water, and I am most impressed at how she is balancing herself. Personally, I would be getting the hell out of there.
If the Dooms Day Report thing doesn't work out for her she could get a job where the other one legged servers work. IHOP.
ok ok ok, I heard the moans and groans all the way over here. I sorry.
