     OK, this is getting old.  It isn't supposed to snow in southern Maryland.  We have 8.5" of snow so far and the temp is 17 F.  Blah.

It's especially sweet when

It's especially sweet when the roads / weather are bad, or in my case, when there are the kid / doctor / parent / post office type errands to run. When last I really commuted, I had a preschooler to ferry to my mother's for day care... and the commute ... and the kid sick... Yes, you can have it all. If you have it all at the same time, you get d****d tired.

It's also very sweet when the weather is good, of course.

Thought of you this evening when I saw part a corrugated metal part of the Smithsonian crumpled under snow on the news. We're actually below average snow this winter up here. (Knock on wood. That can change. March tends toward 100% precipitation. Temperature varies.)

Hey Gisette,   Very

Hey Gisette,

  Very interesting experience working at home.  I accomplished a little more than I would have at the office, got to sleep later and didn't have to drive 2 hours to and from work.  Still a little weird.  I've done work from home, but always on my off days.  Cubicle trained isn't a good thing - but after 29 1/2 years it is just what I'm used to.  I'm working again from home tomorrow.  I could get used to this!

So? How was working from home?

That "cubicle trained" bit was too vivid a turn of phrase. It keeps coming back to me over and over. Kinda like dogs trained in cartons... Yes, I was cubicle trained as a pup, but I escaped, and no one wants to adopt... Some metaphors are best not extended.

(Edit: I was joking. I hope that was clear... )

Eek, on the buildings. Snow

Eek, on the buildings. Snow is very heavy....

Eh, I don't feel guilty leaving my desk while working at home. At work, people spend an awful lot of time talking and coffee breaking. Have fun with it.

Hi All,   The forecast is for

Hi All,

  The forecast is for 6-12" of snow, sleet and freezing rain tonight and tomorrow.  I went in to work today, no heat!  Brrr.  We work in a metal building (I call the shed) and the snow sliding off the roof ripped the gutters off the building.  The next door shed vestibule collapsed.  Bottom line is that they sent us home today until structural analysis can be done on the building.  So I am working from home tomorrow.  I've never actually done a full days worth of work from home.  I'm so cubicle trained that I will feel guily if I leave the home office space tomorrow!

The meat is so funny, Beth.

The meat is so funny, Beth. Fortunately, I work from home. Though we've both got colds - need to lay in a kleenex supply before the snow hits.

Hi Gisette,   Glad you are

Hi Gisette,

  Glad you are looking forward to snow.  Another round of snow for us tomorrow!  Only 3-7" this time, but my gosh, that is enough!  Watching the news and all the meat is again sold out of the markets.  I guess people figure they need their protein.  I still can't figure it out.  Anyways, I give.  If there is snow on the roads on Wed morning, I ain't traveling to work (I've got a 35 mile each way commute).  I'll stay home and plant herb seeds.

Final snow total is 18.5"

Final snow total is 18.5" here in S. MD.  Gisette, you want some, come on down and pick some up!  Here is our Hero, Steve, a nice neighbor who digs us out with his green machine.

I'm actually kinda envious,

I'm actually kinda envious, Beth. It's been so dry here. I think my overwintering pansies bit the dust. Poor things look over-frozen and dessicated.
