Blizzacane is what local meteorologist are calling the storm that hit New England. Its officially a blizzard but wind gusts hit hurricane str. The suburbs of Hartford that saw 12 inches of snow in 90 minutes is where my Aunt Lori lives, have to make some phone calls to check on her today.

This dral is heading out into the "hazardous environment" simply because his catering company has the contract to feed the National Guard when they activate. MEMA Mass. Emergency Management Agency already ordered cold cooked food from us for 3 days for their bunker to the south of us. Thankfully my boss decreed that we would not be taking local deliveries beyond the meals on wheels we already do- so that's a lot less running around in this.

Being from Maine and having lived in the Adirondack Mts and in Alaska as well as having made a shelter with a tarp and rope and slept out in a blizzard I rarely am impressed by snow events. (I was visiting Tennessee once and they had a inch of snow and it shut the state down!) I think I may be impressed with this one.

I hope anyone caught in this storm uses good judgement and common sense if they must venture out.

I'll be pondering the effects of trudging and working in deep snow for game characters.

No sick days saved or you just really want to go to work?
Sounds like a great job but where did you say we had to go?

Lets see, stay home in the house with my wife or go to work? I'd rather go to work plus saturday is an important chunk of my pay check. Need to do the 8 to ten hours or the pay check stinks. Tore a muscle working though. Putting it in a sling and skipping going to the clinic because mass transit isnt running and there is no bus. Going to show up to work with the sling and force them to give me one of the knuckleheads to do the heavy lifting.
