Snowing Again – But I’m Here

I finally made it in today after being snowed in for most of a week (finally got out of driveway on Monday). And it has been snowing since 9:00 or so this morning. I need to be at the shop for a while because I have 3 boxes coming via UPS — 2 of cotton and I don’t know who the 3rd box is from but there was a notice of attempted delivery on the door from yesterday. That said, I am keeping an eye on the street conditions because my driveway is hard to get into in snowy/icy weather and I don’t want to get stuck (literally) parking on the side of the street.

Provided I’m not snowed in again, the shop will be open tomorrow (Wednesday) morning but will close about noon as I’m scheduled for more medical tests tomorrow afternoon.

Um, Snow Week.

Ok, it’s Friday and I’m still snowed in. Might be able to get out of garage and down driveway but between the side of street depth of snow and the way cars are parked across the street, I can’t get from driveway into street to go anywhere. The schools are all still closed and in the past I’ve used school closures as a gauge for when I should be closed for weather related reasons so the shop is still closed Friday and probably Saturday, too, unless it warms up a lot today and this stuff finally starts melting.

Snow Day!

Even the University is closed today so I’ve convinced myself I really should stay home rather than risk being a statistic of the storm. At first glance, it doesn’t look too bad out there; then my eyes start taking in the rest of the story: visibility of a half block or less, zillions of tiny flakes swirling down, an apparent 4″ or so already on the ground. Ok, I’ll sit this one out at home.
