Blizzaster 2011

Postby StlSluggers » Tue Feb 01, 2011 10:01 am

It's about to hit the fan here in St. Louis. Southern part of the metro area is looking at a couple inches of ice. Just to the north and west, they're looking at 2 feet of snow. I'm somewhere in between. We're officially in a blizzard warning with 35+ mph winds expected for many hours later today. Got the fireplace and propane grill primed and ready, just in case. How are things shaping up for the rest of you? Who lives in Chicago? It's supposed to be pretty bad there, too.

In Boston it's already one of the 10 snowiest winters ever ... and we're supposed to get up to 24 more inches over the next two days.

Ugh, classes aren't even canceled at NIU as far as I know, so that's 7 hours of class today and I don't even have tennis rackets I can tape to my feet to make snow shoes. On top of that I'm in charge of getting people to shovel around my house, and if everyone's lazy they're going to blame me for not doing my job.

I'm mulling the idea of taking the day off tomorrow to build a snow fort in Grant Park. At the very least it will be a work from home day since I reverse commute for work.

Today is the 7th day they've canceled school since January started here. We can't go more than 3 days without getting another storm with several inches. Worst winter since '95 is all they keep saying. With another storm piggy backing this one late tonight/early tomorrow morning, it may be more of the same tomorrow. Not that I'm complaining...

Have fun working into July like a normal person.
