So… there’s a blizzard coming. And because I will be stuck in my house for the foreseeable future, I thought I would try liveblogging the storm. I’m not sure anyone will find this interesting except my mom, but I thought it might be a fun record to have.
Besides, it’s my blog. I can do what I want. So here we go.
7:00am – My boss is amazing and told us yesterday that we could telework today. So I just got out of bed. I’m exasperated, but not surprised that the federal government opted to open today. Basically, the offices are open and employees can telework (if eligible), take a vacation day, or they can go in and then leave 4 hours early, but no later than noon. They’re calling this a staggered departure to prevent everyone from being on the road at once, but I can think of one person in my office who might leave before 4 pm on a normal day. The snow is supposed to start between 12 and 2. This is a terrible idea.
8:00am – This quote from the local forecasters is interesting:
The way in which the system is presently developing also argues for the unbelievably-high totals to occur somewhere in this event. That somewhere could be here or very close by.
8:50am – Pippin is hunkered down, ready for the snow. Yes, I put a blanket in front of the heating vent for him. Don’t judge me.
