We're pretty sure that the children will have a snow day tomorrow. We've got a blizzard warning through the entire day tomorrow and authorities are already advising against travel unless it's an emergency. I'm holding my breath about getting to work. Very, very rarely the hospital calls an emergency situation and only essential personnel need to report. That is one time I'm happy to be considered non-essential. They did it for a while during the floods of 2008- at that time we worked with minimal staffing rather than none. In the past when the weather was really bad, I was the one who always showed up since I walked and didn't 'have an excuse' to not be there (like I was any safer walking 1.3 miles through a winter storm than someone having to drive!) Now, living out in the country, I'll have to see what the road conditions are before I decide. Since this is our first winter in this house, we don't know where the drifts will form yet. Personally, I'm hoping for a 5 foot drift right in front of the garage!
In other work news- I had my interview this afternoon. It's hard to gauge how it went. It was very odd being interviewed by people I know, including 2 who I work closely with on a daily basis. Like I said- odd. They've still got 2 more to interview for the position I applied for and I have an 'open forum' over the lunch hour next week where anyone in the department can come and ask me questions. I'm more worried about that than I was about the interview.
We still haven't put up the tree yet, maybe tomorrow if it's a snow day. And I need to figure out when to plan the cookie baking extravaganza. I work on Saturday so that's out. Maybe the following weekend- I'll have a three day weekend. We'll see.
I hope all of you in the path of this storm stay warm and safe.
