A week ago today, it started snowing:
When it ended more than 24 hours later, we had 26 inches of snow on the ground in our back yard.
It wasn’t so bad this first snow fall. It was a lot of snow. Jami was a shoveling champ – but I had had a long and busy two weeks previous, and wasn’t sad to have an excuse to stay inside and be a little lazy.
Monday morning the Federal government was closed, but my office was open and Jami and I trucked into work.
Tuesday afternoon, the second snow storm hit. (Jami and I are still at work, the Federal government is still closed.)
Wednesday morning, my office was still saying it was open. I did not go. This is what it looked like:
It was officially a blizzard. I’ve got a good work ethic, but I’m not crazy. We got at least another foot in that storm.
Thursday, metro was underground only, with trains every 30 minutes. I went to work. Our street has still not be plowed since Saturday night. The power in one of our two office buildings wasn’t working (luckily not mine). Need I mention, that the Federal government was closed?
This morning, we got our newspaper delivered for the first time in a week. The Federal Government reopened. We have high hopes for the mail having been delivered by the time we get home (the only day it got delivered this week was Tuesday). I am no longer the only research librarian in the office. Things are looking up. Now if this snow they are calling for on Monday could just go somewhere else, I’d be a very happy girl.
