The holiday on Monday and the fact that I also took Tuesday off have me completely off as to what day it is.
We are in Blizzard Central here in the Boston area, so H & I are WFH today. Babypants' daycare is also closed (not that we would have even ventured out to drive her there - visibility is already horrendous and we aren't even in the worst of the storm yet). I may also be WFH tomorrow if the blizzard is as bad as the weather people are predicting.
Luckily I am not currently on deadline (first time since maternity leave and not counting maternity leave, this is the first time I haven't been on deadline in almost a year and a half), so WFH today for me means just connecting to VPN, checking email, and Knotting sporadically while Babypants naps.
Hopefully we don't lose power (which would mean we would lose heat), but H & I were without power and heat in February of 2013 for about three days (previous neighborhood - the sea wall also breached so our neighborhood was an island with no access for emergency services for those three days as well), so we have since created "storm protocols" which means we jack up the heat so that if we do lose power/heat, it takes longer for the house to get too cold. Since we have the baby now, if we were to lose heat/power (God forbid), we would board the puppy at the VCA near us and check into the Marriott that's about 7 miles from here.
CNN and our local weather people are saying that after the storm, temps in the Boston area will drop so low that we will be colder than Mars. Yikes.
My cousin lives in the Charleston area and posted a video on Instagram yesterday of snow coming down amidst the palm trees in her neighborhood. It was both freaky and kind of neat to see.
How's everyone doing here?
