We've got it right now... We are under about 5 inches at the moment.....

I tried to get back for school, decided it was a no go. School starts late tomorrow, I decided for Sid that it was a Snowday....

You are surly not going to let 5 inches of snow keep you in?

If they are going to call off school...


The problem with snow here is the drifts. So it may be clear in spots, but feet deep in others. My Corolla can handle up to about a foot before it starts complaining, and with the new 17" wheels its got not so great tires for snow....

Oh have no fear I am all about an unscheduled day off, but I haven't busted your chops in a while and just needed a fix.

Richard, did you call for the Kimray free ride to work?

The snow is mostly no big deal here in central OK at the moment. Just a couple of inches and it is mostly melted on the roads. Just slush and gunk on my clean El Camino.

My wife gets to go in 2 hours late.

There is a band of possible freezing rain coming. I hate frozen water of any sort falling from the sky, but snow is better than freezing rain.

Didn't have to call in the rescue team. Able to manage the hallway with no difficulty. There was a moment when the whiteness outside disoriented me, but was able to get my bearings and soldier on.

Actually, I hopped in the Rover and splashed my way over to Burger King and got me some Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Croissants. They are on sale 2 for $3.

The only window in this entire building is the front door. It looks North. I can see the major highway that most of the commuters use to get from Edmond to downtown Oklahoma City. The traffic is backed up for a long way. Somehow standing inside looking out the door with a hot cup of coffee watching other suckers stuck in traffic always maks me smile. I guess because I am not in the string of traffic going 5 MPH.
