Snow & Ice

We finally got "significant" snow. While the actual amount on the ground is probably not more than six inches or so, the top couple of inches are icy snow and ice. It took me about 30 minutes to get my van cleared enough (for me) to drive to work (not far).

Very few people made it into work at the Call Center. The Navy Depot where Nod works was closed today, as were all the schools (ours was the last to go from delay to closed early this morning.) When I left work after four hours, my van was completely incased in ice (see photo!) and it took a while to get a door open so that I could start the engine and get the defrosting going. As I left for the day, the Center Director decided to close at 3 pm and to open late tomorrow.

When I got home, the list of business closures on tv was extensive - it's running along the bottom of the tv screen thru all shows and commercials now (and it's so long that it's quicker to check online).

Now our girls are checking and hoping that there is a delay tomorrow for school, but not a closure. That'll cut into spring break days off later on this year.

Yeah, we finally had a real snow too. It's actually a fair amount.

I hope the girls get their delay!

The psychic rodent was wrong again!

I think I would not show up to work if my vehicle were covered in ice. I am a tropical kind of dude. That much ice is something I can not deal with.

The girls got a closing instead of a delay. Kids just don't know how to have fun these days. A closing used to be an answer to a prayer.

That's a van?

You and I both know Goa'uld isn't really hoping for a delay. She's probably hoping they'll start school an hour early due to frost.

You stay warm, though!

My office was insisting everybody in, despite our weather.

I was one of the few who crawled into work Wednesday. We were rewarded with an early dismissal, and the rest of the day PAID--no vacation or dock time! You know where I work, so you can understand how I almost broke my jaw with the news. Wow.

Yeah, and then we spend three hours trying to clear off things. I am SO sore.

TAke care!

Soemtimes, if the snowfall has been extreme, I start getting the snow of the car with a broom until I relaize it is my neighbours car......I am really well liked in my neighbourhood. I have a crappy memory when it comes to where I parked :)

It's too cold to poop out there.

I just want to point out that I requested SNOW. That other stuff that came after it was someone else's idea.

it took our kids a couple of years to realize that "snow days" were not the "blessings" they seemed. hope the school closings were kept to a minumum, and that you're all thawed out, dry and WARM!

and Happy (late) Valentine's Day -- i'm just latelatelate to everything these days. hope yours, tho' white, was lovely! neva xox
