Well it is probably an understatement to say that winter has finally arrived! Actually it started snowing on Wednesday night around 9:00 p.m. and it basically snowed for about 24-hours straight. They issued a winter storm warning until midnight last night. I haven't seen how many inches we got, but there was tons of snow! I actually trudged to work at RLS. At one point, I lost the sidewalk, and since I was looking down to prevent snowflakes from sticking to my eyeballs, following the sidewalk was my only hope. Speaking of eyeballs, wearing glasses was practically purposeless. I couldn't see out of them due to the fog that was building and it was snowing so hard, I had to duck my head. Who LIVES in places like this? Oh, yeah, we do. Ooops.
Not that I am complaining of course, but today, they are expecting temperatures as low as 18 below and with windchill, 15 to 30 below! I don't plan on going outside much if I can avoid it, and this will be one day that I drive to RLS even though it is only 3 blocks away.
Today at 9:30 a.m., JB takes his "Shelf" exam for surgery which he must pass in order to not have to repeat his surgery rotation. He has been studying a lot for this, and I know many of his classmates will also have to take different shelfs today. As for the weekend, the temperature will most likely keep us inside most of the weekend -- lots of heat, rice bags, and hot drinks! How come no one visits us in February?
