Well, we have gone from the S word to the B word and that's just BS.
This morning our office opened even though the building we are in was closed!! As I trudged my way to the barely operating metro I thought about how lucky I was to have a job to go to when so many people do not.
When I left the house at 6:40am it was not too bad - about 3 inches on top of Saturday's leftovers and not falling too heavily.
When I got out of the metro 1.5 hours later this is what I came up to:
That would be a blizzard!
There were 5 of us in the office including the two execs who had made the decision to open.
We were open for half an hour before they decided to close!!!! Half an hour!!!
I love my job; I am so glad I have a job!
I got a ride back to the metro and 1 hour 40 minutes later I got to my station. As I was coming up the escalator I was surprised to see snow sticking to the vertical metal sides:
The way home is that way:
It was not a fun walk – the wind and snow so hard that I could barely keep my eyes open and it is frigid and the snow is not soft and flaky it is pellet-like and hurts. Now I am hunkering down until the wind and snow die down enough to get out there with my shiny red shovel.
Oh – and they've just announced that they are pulling all road clearing equipment off the roads until conditions improve!
