Work is cancelled due to the inclement weather we're having in NC right now and I can't be happier. We only get one of these every few years or so. It was touch-and-go there for a little while. They were only going to delay opening to 10 am but now it's completely closed, thank goodness. I can tell you I definitely wasn't relishing the idea of driving my little RWD sports car with summer performance tires on snow and ice! In celebration, I'll be making some crystal malt today. It's been rehydrating in the fridge all night.

Be careful, Brian, people will tease us for shutting everything down for only 2" of snow. But I'm home enjoying the snow day, too.

Snow day. Bah.

It's been snowing here. Every day. All the time. Unless the high is less than -15 or so, which it was for about 5 days in a row, then it is too cold to snow. As soon as it warms up to near 0, it snows. It's snowing now. And I don't get no stinking snow day!

You couldn't take the teasing or the 2" of snow?

Funny. No, I couldn't take the flat-out panic that ensued with the threat of flurries.

I wish we would get some snow. We have all the cold (maybe not as bad as Yoopers) but still in the teens and single digits, but no white stuff.

Yeah when you live in areas used to snow you never get a snow day . Here they have to close the Uni for me to get a snow day and that is very rare indeed.

I wonder how much snow Buffalo needs to have a snow day?
