Finally, a little weather for us. We've gotten about eight inches of powder today (a very pretty day—as I was shoveling, I kept hearing Gabriel Iglesias—"it's fluffy!"), and the kids arrived home after school today reporting that a snow day had already been announced for tomorrow. That's fairly amazing. The schools here don't close just for blizzards—they have to be strategically timed blizzards. We can go a whole winter without a snow day, and I don't think in the ten years we've lived here they've ever announced a closing the afternoon before a weather event—a grudging closing at 6:30 a.m. is more the norm. Kind of makes me wonder what the heck could be on the way.
The light you see burning in the window in the picture above is my home office, from whence I blob on the ethernet all day. As long as the power stays on, no closings here.
