A Snow Day?
« on: January 05, 2014, 08:38:56 PM »
You know it's been a pretty good winter storm when the hospital you work at basically closes, except for a tiny skeleton crew.  So I basically have a snow day tomorrow. We got a foot of snow in ~ 8 or 9 hours today.  Heaviest snowfall I've ever seen -blizzard conditions.  And to make things worse wind chills are to be -40F to
-50F tomorrow, drifting like a mother. Makes you wanna do a shot.......perfect idea.     ;)

I'm still waiting to see what the conditions are across the county. I'm at the foot of a mountain forest and back in here it is iced in. No word yet if rest of county is like that or not. I really hop not because I can't afford to take a snow day today. That said, would be fun for kids if they got to have one.

Well, schools open so I'm heading in (albeit on a 2 hour delay for all of us). One 11 year old is rather upset school is not shut completely. 2 hour delay be damned.

I was a little surprised when I was watching the game this weekend and they showed shots of the city and there was no snow.  I really expected Indy to have snow on the ground.  A foot of snow around here is just a storm...do you not get a lot of snow in Indy usually?

Well, if you MIT guys would get together and build an environmental control system, we could all be sitting in 83F weather  ;)

Yeah, there was just a dusting at game time. The dump came on Sunday. It looks a little different now. The Mayor closed the City to all non-emergency traffic. I guess I'm not going to work.

I'm just outside of Chicago, and I don't know of any schools that are open today in the area. It's currently -18°F with a wind chill of -Hoth°F. So it's a snow day, but nobody is going outside to play in the snow. Our power went out briefly this morning too. After that little scare, I vow to never freak out again when we lose power in the middle of summer.

Everything is closed, except for my office apparently.

Good thing I have DIPA and Imperial Stout on tap for the sub zero temps.

After shoveling for the 2nd time yesterday I cracked open an Expedition Stout.  Then I took a nap.  'Twas quite enjoyable.

Sure, we get snow in Indy.  Not normal to get a foot in an afternoon, followed by -40F winds around here though.   ;)
