Default Winter Storm Warning

Well, should I go to work tomorrow or not ???

Looks like most of the snow could fall between 9am and 3pm tomorrow. Would be a bollocks to make it back to the station only to find my car stuck in a drift (high winds expected too).

Perhaps staying at home is the best option, though tomorrow was shaping up to be quite an interesting day.

It sure does. That's why I'm at home looking out of the window watching the snow fall rather than sitting in a 3 hour traffic jam.

No - I would be fine to take it off but as there are a few interesting meetings scheduled for today I struggled into the office - just home I can make it home - have a shovel in the car just in case.

Just looked out my home office window....can usually see down the end of the road to the old Route 66(about 200 yards),but right now it's snowing so hard,and is very windy, can just barely see about 30 yards down the street.....what a miserable day..........husband is home with flu,and my throat is getting very scratchy..just my luck!........Keep warm and safe all......Sophia
p.s.Our electric snapped off and straight back on as well,just as my computer fired up this morning,so it'll probably go off later in the day!
