Snow Day - 2/16/06
Well then.
Here's the snow we didn't get last few months...

(Shot taken from behind West Gate mall [where my office is located], on Whitney and Odana)
The drive to work was fine; it wasn't snowing at the time. Now, it's torrential. There's thunder and lightning accompaniment. We've got about 2ish inches from the storm last night and another 4 to 8 expected.

Hope it lets up this evening as I was looking forward to seeing aetrix9 and, you know... not dying in a car crash.

Edit: Fun with numbers.

So.. half the company is out. That's about 1000 people.
Many of these people will be trying to VPN into work because we're all diligent little monkeys, conservatively lets say 600.
Epic allows 400 VPN connections coming into the network.
200 people are attacking the network trying to get in.

The network is running very, very slowly today. It's hard to get much down with I click and wait thirty seconds in my VM image.

Current Mood: chipper Snowy

it is WEIRD out there, man. Weird plus four.

No doubt. Have you heard anything about when it'll let up? Weather.msn.com only says we're to expect 10 inches.

I heard on the radio that "the worst of it" is to come this afternoon.

If "the worst of it" - after the thunder/lightning/snow craziness I just witnessed - does not include locusts and the death of all firstborn, I will be surprised.

We could always have a sleep-over at her place.... thus increasing our chances of not dying in a car crash...

You're interested in this whole sleepover idea, aren't you? Well Im fully stocked for toilet paper and extra blankets, but I don't have jack for food. We can walk to Copps and hopefully not get totally lost.

Is it just me, or would it feel weird if Sev was there AND weird if he wasn't?
abmann From: abmann Date: February 16th, 2006 03:39 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yes, it would be weird irrespective of Sev's presence. But, were anything to happen with him there it might get especially odd given his attraction to me and my complete straightness. :|

We have no clothes at your place, though. Not that it's a big deal... like I don't wear the same pants for a year before washing. I dunno.

Wait to see what the roads look like.

Sleep overs are fun!

And yes, I think it would be wierd either way.

I can't see the children's hospital... It's like normally RIGHT OUTSIDE my window. It's just... gone... Lost.

I was feeling really cabin-feverish last night. I told Fox that if the weather's shitty and you don't want to drive, we can always have a big sleepover party at my place.

And thunder and lightning in the middle of winter was really refreshing.

Thunder and lightning in a snow storm is awesome.

You mean "freakish."

I am *so* jealous.

I'll pack a bunch of it up and send it to you. How does one ship snow?

(Sorry ABM, forgot I wasn't on my own blog there for a second...)

Not sure snow can make to England without quite some expense.

Do yuo have to pay tax on snow exports?
abmann From: abmann Date: February 16th, 2006 03:36 pm (UTC) (Link)
Sure sure. Driving in this is enviable, I know.
