Storm of the Century

So we are gearing up for the "STORM of the Century". At least according to the news. We are suppose to get up to 10 inches of snow so it should make driving to work SO much fun...I can't wait! According to all reports I better stock up on food for the next 4 weeks because we will be SNOWED IN! LOL I just love how the news plays these storms. You would think te end of the world is on it's way.

We had a big meeting today that said "Storm Preparations" here I was getting my hopes up and they basically wanted to discuss what we are going to do with the calls when no one shows up tomorrow. There is a .000000000000000001% chance that a car company that shall remain nameless may decide to close the building but in the 7 yrs I have worked there it has only happened in the "Great East Coast Blackout" a few years ago. I say if you are trying to save money you should just close for the day, I mean no one is buying cars anyway...especially in a snow storm, but I guess that is why I am not paid the "big" bucks. I hate driving in the snow. It's pretty for about the first few minutes before everyone stomps all over it but then it just sucks! I'm hoping the "Great snow of '08" doesn't happen but we will see in the morning. Oh well, I guess I will go get my sled dogs ready for tomorrow.

I am so sorry!! You will be in my thoughts tomorrow.

I hate it when people talk about how much the love snow and wouldn't it be really great if it would dump a foot of snow on us and don't you just love 'white Christmases'

Bleh. Those people obviously don't ever have to drive in it.

They do the same thing with us with hurricanes.

I can't believe your employer would make you go into work tomorrow if there is 10 inches of snow dumped on the city. I am generally a fan of your employer (if I am guessing correctly based on the car you said you drive) :) but that really is NOT cool. Time to arrange some work-from-home capabilities.

Ah- retail vs. common sense.

We used the sled Wed to get to the Post Office. FUN and necessary cause the roads had not even been touched.

That is our town's idea of saving money. Says the town crew, "Let's just sit around drinking coffee and eating - whatever - until the storm is over. That saves dirt, salt and gas money for the town."
