Snow Day(s)

We're buried! About 12" of snow, 35 mph winds, and -50 degree windchills filled our weekend and the first part of the week.

I use the term "snow day" rather loosely. Even though the county had closed all roads and nobody was allowed out except emergency workers, I got several messages from my managers making it clear that I was expected to be at work. Jon brought me in on Monday, as there was no way the Malibu was making it out of our unplowed, drifting, neighborhood.

After working a full day, I was informed that legally I wasn't allowed to leave the hospital since the roads were closed -- I was only allowed to COME to work. The hospital told us that police officers were fining people returning home $500 to $2500 for being out. Our CEO told us that our safety was "first priority" (although ... apparently only AFTER I had seen all the patients) and recommended we sleep at the hospital. Um, no thank you.

Millie is very displeased that we won't let her outside.

We're thankful for a warm house, 4 wheel drive, and some sun today to begin to melt the roads! Stay warm!


  1. So what did you do!?

    1. Went home! The roads were actually much better than in the morning since the plows had been working all day.
