Ladies and Gents, in case you missed, the Northeastern part of the U.S. of A. was hit with a bit of a snowstorm last night. IN the grand scheme of snowstorms, it wasn't even that major of a storm...I believe we had about 10 inches by the time it was all said and done, so yeah, a lot of snow, but we've had more.
HOWEVER, in terms of the commute home, this one will go down in history as one of the WORST EVER. At least for me it will. It started snowing around 1PM, and my boss was kind enough to send us home at 2PM. I kind of wish now he had not, because it seems that everyone else on the planet ALSO decided to leave at the same time. I was home a little bit after 5PM.
Let me put this in perspective for you. I live 11.5 miles from my job. ELEVEN MILES. It took me THREE HOURS to go 11 miles.
When the storm began, I took some before and "during" photos, with plans to take "after" photos and do a fun post about the storm today. After my travel ordeal, I went home and finished off a bottle of wine and pretty much said "screw the storm pictures, I want nothing to do with this freakin' storm anymore". So, you get no pictures. Maybe I'll give you some for Wordless Wednesday next week. Maybe I'll be over it by then.
That said, because I left work early yesterday, I have A LOT to do today, so Follow-Up Friday is being cancelled this week. My apologies, but I just have too much to do. Instead, I direct you to this post. I'm getting some interesting responses, and the different viewpoints are exactly why I asked the questions I asked. What do you think? How do you feel? (I have responded to comments in there, so drop in if you left a comment too).
Have a great weekend everyone, I have my company's Christmas Party on Saturday night, and another Nor'Easter is expected on Sunday, so I may not leave the house that day.
