We didn't quite get the 12+" that were forecast, but we still got a respectable amount of snow today. Hard to tell with all the blowing and drifting, but it looked like at least 8". I know they got more out in the western part of the state (see [livejournal.com profile] asakiyume's latest post). It took me a good hour to shovel off the deck, stairs, and around my car. :::oof:::

At least I didn't have to drive in it. My employers let everyone work from home today. I've never done that before. It was a little strange doing my job in my living room, but it was so nice not to worry about driving in the snow or missing a day of work. We use Slack (a chat app), and it was fun reading everyone's updates throughout the day. I especially enjoyed peoples' lazy pet photos that they posted.

It's been a weird winter. Pretty mild, by New England standards, but February is always the worst month, weather-wise. Yesterday, it was in the high forties after starting out coated in ice. Quite the rollercoaster. It's true what they say about the weather here: if you don't like it, just wait five minutes.

When the weather gets like this, it feels like spring is a million years away. Especially after getting a tease of it, like we did this week. It doesn't help that I see pictures of snowdrops and daffodils from friends in warmer climes. It's not that I hate winter; I just wish it didn't last so long.

They called me from the office this morning about a network ad that I took yesterday that the network was having a problem with. Apparently they don't take ads that ask you to send money in the mail, even though they take those stupid stuff-envelopes ads. Whatever. So Lynn from the network called me, then I called the customer (he lives in the same town I do), then I called Lynn back with changes, then I called the customer back, who cancelled the ad. So I had to call Lynn again (fortunately, she has a toll-free number). Just a few minutes ago, the customer called me again. Mamma mia! I don't have the info here that he needs, so I'll just have to call him tomorrow from the office. Oh well, at least I might be able to salvage the sale. It was a good one, too.

I hear that the roads out there are quite treacherous, so I don't feel guilty about staying home. My little Hyundai just isn't made for driving in these conditions. Actually, anything short of a tank isn't made for this. They have yet to plow our parking area and driveway, and there was a car stuck in it earlier. They spun their wheels for quite a while.

It just occurred to me that it probably would've been a good idea to take the ice scraper out of my car last night. Hopefully I can still get into it.

Stay safe & warm!
