    Hey, today, I had a snow day! The snow isn't wicked bad. But I am none-the-less excited. Anybody else have one?

    Hopefully it keeps FedEx away this morning, though.

    Snow day here in NH as well. I am the principal so I got to call it today! Of course the snow is really really coming down hard. Already 12 inches this morning and expecting 16+ by this afternoon. Snowing 2-3 inches an hour right now at 12:30ish We even had a 4WD bus arranged for today but was going be too deep. My school is near a pretty tough mountain to get over in bad weather- even with my Jeep. My wife teaches too so we have the whole family home today!

    I wish I had a snow day today. Last night was a real pain trying to get back to Chicago from Seattle. What is normally a 3 1/2 hour flight or so turned in to a 9 hour+ fun ride.

    3 hours in the plane waiting to depart. 4 hours in the air. 2.5 hours on the ground in Chicago waiting for a gate. Then I got to go dig my car out from under 7 inches of snow and drive home on slick roads.

    Today it's beautiful out - sunny, not snowing, not even all that cold. Dang.

    Working for MI-6
    Had about 6" of snow on the ground this morning when I woke up. The outside looks so pretty all dressed in white. :)

    Still have class though... :mad:

    Snow day here in northern NJ as well. We have a good 8 inches of snow on the ground. I love snow days. Sledding, hot chocolate, snowball fights...Nice to have one day to go back to childhood.

    It's snowing hard in Connecticut. I have a presentation to give at 12 pm in New Haven, but can't get out of my drive way (Hamden). Hopefully people will understand and won't be too upset at me for not showing up. It's hard to tell.

    I DO hope FedEx can deliver today. I am expecting my dual core G5 with the upgraded NVidia 7800 card!!

    Yeah, the truth comes out...don't want to present, but want to set up my new G5!

    I suppose. Had to get up a snow-blow the driveway this morning. A little slow this morning, after getting home about 1:30am Central. Just now getting ready to head to work. :eek:

    I have a snow day today.. the snow is almost half-way up the tires of my car... so my guess is around 6" of snow give or take

    sitting on your shoulder
    As soon as I saw this, I looked at your location. Seems right to me. :D

    According to the radar, the mix is just about to hit my area. I just hope the roads are clear enough tonight so I can go see Wynton Marsalis in New Bedford.

    last night, we had almost 8 inches of snow, and they closed every single school in the county! YES! 3 DAY WEEKEND!! I went outside barefoot at 10 last night, it was right at 6 inches with a ruler, but my feet froze. It was still comin down hard, and it just looks like about 8 inches, so yeah. And,, just so everyone knows, going outside when it is snowing in 6 inches of snow is not very smart.

    I have a strike day. :( My teachers are on strike, so it could be a while before i go to school again. It will be ok for a little while, and then it will begin to suck, i'm sure.

    Well my family all decided to take off today about a week in advance or so. We decided that we would all just call in and if we had off so be it.

    My mom's school got a delay, mine got nothing. However my school is a countwide tech school, so the kids come from all districts. Their home districts provide busing. My home district didn't have school. So I wouldn't have been able to have transportation this afternoon to my work. The AM would have been OK, but it was really hazardous driving at that time. So it's just as well that I didn't go. I'm hoping I won't get docked for the day since I really had no transportation.

    I just wish my school would have had off too so I wouldn't have had to make assignments and tests up. :( We had off on Tues, when everyone else in the county had a delay, so I guess this was our punishment.

    A snow day would have been nice. Offive building had an electric power test last night, had me worried. Woke up at 4:30 and found out all our servers were down. Snow was coming down pretty hard. Called IT VP and he was in the office. Gave me vague answers. Left home at 5:30 to head to work. Servers all still down when I got there. Top network guy was nowhere to be seen. The IT VP and others looked spooked. I asked where Bill was since this problem had been going on since midnight. No answer. Bill shows up at 8:20 and got all servers up at about 8:45. Lost web site for 12 hours. Not good, especially given a competitor just went out of business.

    Can't wait to ask the IT VP (bumbling idiot) where Bill was in our staff meeting later today.

    snow day here too, but I work at home so that meant I had to go shovel the driveway for my wife to get to work.

    I did go out and go sledding down our hill with my son, but since he's only 2, that lasted about 10 minutes before he got cold hands and a red face. Oh, and lots of snot :D

    Ski Time Baby!

    3 1/2 feet of snow in the last week at Breckenridge CO. My boys and I leave for there next weekend! Yahoo :D I haven't had ski's on in 20 years. Hope it's like riding a bike. I used to ski pretty well :eek: I've heard that equipment has come a long way. My boys are hooked up with snowboarding lessons for three days straight so they should get the hang of it. I'm sticking to what I know (or used to know) and that's skiing.
