You are here
Well I am here bracing the storm until they decide to close the trains. (or when I get bored and want to play in the snow)

Getting to work this morning was no problem. Deciding when to leave to make it home safe is another question altogether!

Just brushed us in CNY, however the "I forget how to drive in 3 inches of snow people" were out in full force this morning! It was like bumper cars out there.

When I left for work I instantly regretted only having one layer of my winter jacket on. What is with 10 degrees after it had been nearly 50!
Stay safe and warm over there!!

We were expecting 4 inches and got about 8. Poor TJ was shoveling for 30 minutes so I could leave for the office.

There was no snow whatsoever on my commute from the kitchen to my office; however, I had to clear the 8" of snow from the driveway and 24" of plowed frozen snow at the end of the driveway before I started my workday.

I'll take winter any day over those terrible tornados NO had the other day.
