Waffles are ready! Come and get 'em!

The snow has stopped falling here. My area got about 9 inches give or take. No clue yet if work will be open in the afternoon. Currently they're still telling people to stay off the roads so that they can plow. I again admire their restraint in not adding the word "MORONS."

Snow's here! Just started falling. You know what that means: waffles tomorrow!!!

Snow came pouring down on the region last night. The kicker, though, was the wind gusts. Apparently regular wind was 35 mph and gusts went up to 60 mph. Given the woooooosh of air I kept hearing last night, I absolutely believe it.

Work is closed, not that I was going in anyway. Authorities are telling people to stay off the roads if at all possible. As I mentioned on twitter, I admire their restraint in not adding "You fucking morons."

Currently no snow is falling and the sun is out. I can even see bits of blue sky. I'll be heading out soon to do some shoveling, though some fairy has already cleared off my car. I shall have to find a way to thank said fairy.

They say it's hard to estimate how much snow fell, due to all the wind. The best measurement that they could get was 10 inches, but I can tell you just looking out my window that more than that fell. Something in the neighborhood of 15 seems a more reasonable number.

I spent yesterday knitting a hat and watching six hours of Tales From the Green Valley. I would lay very good odds on me doing similar activities with the rest of the hat and the DVD set once I get some shoveling done.

It's snowing up here in the land of Siam. I'm told we'e going to get a blizzard. The first thing I did this morning was get laundry done, because the machines are in another building in the complex and I neither have a sled nor a cat willing to play reindog for me in order to get my clothes back in bad weather.

So clothes are washed and hanging up in my bedroom to dry. Afterwhich was breakfast with proper tea, clementines, and pancakes. As most of you know, normally snow means waffles but at that point I was too hungry to wait to make waffles. I'd made pancakes yesterday and had the leftovers in the freezer, so it was a no-brainer to heat those up instead of waiting for waffles to get done. If there's no work tomorrow I'll try to make waffles then.

Now there is nothing to do but relax. I have snow, I have new DVDs, I have craft projects with no particular deadline because I don't have any more gifts to make, I have cats to cuddle with - all in all a perfect day.

SNOW! There was snow today! I woke up and looked out the window and flakes of joy were falling from the sky!!! BEST EVER!!!!

Okay granted it only lasted about 20 min but still! YAY SNOW!!!!!!!

We got hit with snow here in the land of Siam, but not the Snowocalypse that others along the East coast got. I'd say maybe six inches all told? Possibly?

I'll go out into it later to shovel and clean off my car. First I'm going to get cracking on all sorts of holiday baking. I was going to do this all weekend but the oh so slow to arrive storm left me with a headache until about six pm yesterday, give or take. I did get some things done, but not nearly as many as I'd hoped. So today shall be a marathon session, as I need to get things ready to give to people at work tomorrow (aka before they leave for the holidays).

Granted that all this requires getting up off of the couch. Details.

It snowed today.

Didn't stick or anything, but it was pretty while it lasted.

It was also fun to make my coworkers do double takes when I told them to look out the window.

Mine is an evil laugh.

Surprise snow! Happy flakes of snowness falling from the sky!

SNOW! SNOW SNOW SNOW SNOW SNOW! Perhaps you've heard about it?

Work has a delayed opening, though some freaks have already gone in. I was fine for going in too but then it started snowing again. Now I sit here doing the dance of wondering what to do. My boss offered to pay for a cab to take me in but it's one thing to go in, it's another to be able to get back, yanno?

So I sit here watching weather reports and dithering. Mac, at least, is happy as that means my lap is available to him.

We have snow! Or had. I think it's moved to the icy/slushy rain stage. Either way I'm working from home today. Such is the joy of being able to do so and having a perfect day for it since most of my dept is away at a convention until tomorrow.

So there will be working from home, where I tend to get a lot done because of the lack of interruptions, as well as snuggling with the kitties and eventually digging out my car so I can get to work tomorrow.

In the meanwhile I wanted to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my BFF [livejournal.com profile] stakebait. If you'd like to say happy birthday to her, I bet you couldn't give her a better present than to check out the first episode of her webshow Accidental Heroes. Fair warning: the theme song will get stuck in your head.

SNOW! Wee flakes, falling from the sky! Soon to be joined by many of their friends, if the weather reports are not fibbing to us! WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

Still snowing here. I got to leave work early, which was nice. Yay for a sane company and boss who understand that you want to get home BEFORE the roads get too bad. It still took me an hour and a half to do what's normally a 20min drive, but still. Way better than being stuck until the roads are ice rinks and you can barely make it down the block.

Now if one had to create a perfect way to spend a snowstorm before the holidays, I think one would probably pick something like wearing jammies, snuggling with cats, and baking. I was able to do all three, woohoo! (There will be more baking tomorrow, as well as WAFFLES! WOOOO!)

Winter storm outside. You know what that means!


Who wants some? I've got oranges and proper tea as well.

Snow! Well, snow earlier. Now it is icy rain. Still!

Of the many signs that my new job is not like my old job, we have the notice that went out saying we could judge for ourselves if we needed to leave early due to weather, and lunch bought for those of us that stayed past lunchtime. This is a very happy thing.

My drive home was slow, but in a good way. Not so much traffic on my side o fthe highway but everyone was driving at a reasonable speed and not being a moron. So I made it home safe and sound.

Now I get to hang out with my kitties! And listen to the freezing rain fall! Yay!
