Hunkered down and waiting out the ice storm. The rain had been fairly heavy and steady for the past few hours. The temp is staying around 30 degrees, but the icicles are forming on the trees and roofline.
Dang fool neighbor has a lighted, inflatable snowman out on the lawn, but weight of the ice received so far has it smushed in pretty bad. He should just turn it off.
I’ll be working from home for the next day or so, ’cause I’m not going out in that mess. I have a pressing deadline on a big project, and at least at home I don’t have to listen to the customer service girl on the other side of the cube wall. (Since she moved in a few weeks ago, I’ve started wearing foam ear plugs and my over-the-ear headphones with music cranked up when I need to concentrate. Which is most of the time.) And I serve a better grade of coffee here at home.
Keeping my fingers crossed that the power stays on and everybody stays warm….
