Big Snow

We've had a bunch of "winter snow warnings" this winter, with not that much snow coming from the storms. That is, until last night.

We got dumped on. There's about a foot of snow in our yard. I used the snow blower last night, knowing I'd have to do it again today, but with the thought the work would only be half as bad today. Even so, it was hard work today.

Here's a pic of the snow falling last night....

You can see the about three inches of snow on the truck. This had all fallen since I had returned home from work three hours earlier. Yes, three inches in three hours. And it just kept falling until midnight.

This is what I found on the truck this morning...

Here's the good news.
While plowing the snow off the road, the muther-f'ing road commission plowed my mailbox. Every frickin' year I have to fix that muther-f'ing mailbox 'cause some dumb-ass has to hit it. Can you tell I'm pissed? Quite a poker face I have, huh?

Snow Day, SNOW DAY!!!

For the first time in more than twenty years, I GET A SNOW DAY!!! Boy, do I love working in academia.

Here's a pic from the back door. It's not that great of a pic, but I'm still in my pj' 1030am! I love snow days!

(it's still snowing in the pic, just not heavy enough at that time for the camera to pick up)

Diane's not to happy. Flint schools, in their infinite wisdom, is the ONLY school open today. I mean, even Mott and UM-Flint are closed! What really has Diane pissed is that there almost certainly will not be enough students in school for the day to count, just like what happened two years ago. That means today won't count, and the district will still have to make the day up. Idiots.

So, Drew and I are hanging out at home, doing nothing of substance.

Happy snow day!
