Snow day

The entire state of Connecticut is closed. Or so it seems. There's no one on the roads, and the city police just called every resident, via automated message, to advise everyone to stay off the roads. Our governor told everyone the same thing, and he's already had his fourth or fifth press conference about the storm today.

My neighbors are comparing this to the blizzard of '78. I was two years old at the time, so obviously, I have no memory of it.

But there are at least two feet of snow outside. The snowbanks from the plows and snowblowers come up to at least my waist.

I'm taking a temporary break from digging my car out of its parking space. I need to defrost a bit.

And then I'll go outside again...because, in all likelihood, I've gotta go back to work tomorrow.

And on a random that Eric Roberts on The Young and the Restless? (I don't ever watch soaps, but I haven't had the chance to change the channel from the local noontime news yet).

I am glad you are home safe. We had the perfect snow. It fell in the middle of the night, was finished before morning, was easy to shovel and the sun melted all the roads clean. It looks like Martha Stewart planned it. It's incredible because our town is so old, with such narrow roads that I expected us all to be locked in like usual.

I don't watch soaps either, but I googled it and it's true! What the heck!

I hope you get unburied sometime soon!

Much the same here. No work and loads of snow. It's great to be home nesting and watching the white stuff outside.
