I am back home now.
Because of the horrible snow and ice storm, I spent the night in a Red Roof Inn with all of its coveted amenities, courtesy of my employer. It took several desperate attempts to open the door to my room, while ice and snow blew all over me and I was standing in a foot-high drift on the ledge on the second floor. I had to go to the motel office to see if they had a pen.
By the time I left work last night, I was starved. The only restaurant open was the always elegant and atmospheric White Castle. I apologized to my co-workers today.
In all, we got about 7-9 inches in this area. Drifts were up to 3 feet in some places. But some places north of us got up to 17 and drifts were much higher. So, I guess I shouldn't bitch.
Well..... needless to say, I am wiped out and am too tired to read the comments, at least with any measure of reasonable comprehension. Therefore, I will forego it, until the morning. Thanks to all that kept the place warm for me.
