Worked at home today. Worked at home Monday, went into work on Tuesday, and they sent us home to work. Then they told us to work at home today. Tomorrow and Friday ... it's looking the same.
Tuesday morning when I drove into work, it wasn't bad. The sun was out. It was cold, but the sun was out and it wasn't snowing. Around 10:30 my boss said they were going to send us home, because it was supposed to get worse as the day went one. By then there was about an inch of snow on my car... it had been snowing HARD that morning.
Drove home.. stopped for lunch with my husband, and kept going. By the time I got near my house I was having trouble seeing because of white out conditions. About 2 miles from my house, the road got a little icy. I didn't think too much of it. I have a new car and really good snow tires on it, so my drive was slow, but fairly smooth. Just had trouble seeing more than 50 feet in front of me at times.
Later my husband came home. The place where it was a little icy when I went through, was now VERY icy, and people were sliding off into the ditch. He helped out by directing traffic until emergency crews came to help. Hopefully no one was hurt.
Temperatures are near zero or below, and that is without the wind chill. It has been really windy too. I guess the last time so many schools and companies closed was in the blizzard of 1978, and before that, in 1967. I sort of remember 1967... I was really young. But I was living in Florida in 1978, and did not experience the "fun" of that blizzard.
Today I worked at home and tried to get a good picture of the male and/or female cardinals that feed off of our feeder. They are a bit skittish. The best I could do was the picture here. I'm going to have to set up a tripod and use an electronic shutter release for them. We have a few woodpeckers that are not as skittish, but I was trying for the cardinals only today. Had to work and didn't have alot of time to be taking pictures.
Stay safe and warm if you leave anywhere near me. And if you live where it is warm, enjoy!!!!
