Oooooo, Scary Snow

Like Robert the Llama Butcher, I'm less than impressed with "storms" around here, especially after having spent five winters in North Dakota (that's how you tell time up there, not by years but by winters).

That doesn't mean I hop into my truck and hit the roads when it gets weathery out, because there are enough nitwits out there already, thank you. But it does mean that I'm at work, because things need doing, and just because it's gonna be a mess later doesn't mean it's a mess now.

Just in case though, there's a blanket and pillow stashed in the truck, and I brought a good book to read if I'm stuck here for awhile. I learned a thing or two over five winters in North Dakota.

1 Yeah, I came in at 6 to beat the crowd, and I'm expecting that most of the day will see the staff clustered around a window saying "How do the roads look? Do you think they will let us leave early?"

2 Haha. We only have rain here. Dad, the snow is supposed to stop tonight, right? I'll prolly call you tomorrow just to be sure the roads in the neighborhood are okay before I hit the road home

3 I spent 5 winters in New Hampshire and I choose to stay off of the roads here in DC because of the people who don't know how to drive in it. Makes me look like a wimp, but I'll be the live wimp with no dents in my car.
