Storm Update – Day 2

After making a night out of it at the office it looks like I will be here once again today. Many roads are completely snow covered and even the short drive from here to my house (less than a mile) isn’t worth the risk right now.

Fortunately the planned live shots for this morning have now turned into phoners, so that is a relief. It’s been quite a night. After being unable to get into my own driveway and retreating to the office I wasn’t sure what to expect.

The highlight of the night was definitely the pizza from Hoops. My gosh that was good. Nice to have pizza on demand within walking distance of one’s workplace when one is stranded in said workplace during blizzard conditions.

Tried catching a little shut eye afterwards by sleeping across the two chairs in my office. You can imagine how well that worked out. I think I got a half hour of sleep. Better than nothing 🙂

Spent some time in the Communications Center while I was stuck at the office overnight.

All kinds of calls were coming in to our staff, with reports of stranded motorists throughout the area. Not good. In addition to trying to clear the roads, plow drivers joined law enforcement personnel in trying to assist these folks. These people work hard.

It’s not getting any better outside. Should be another interesting day around here. Hope you’re staying warm and safe, wherever you are.

As for me I’m thankful for heat, thankful to not be outside, and thankful for those three slices of pizza that are waiting for me in the fridge. Here’s to another day in paradise.
