We’ve had a few flakes of snow drop around here recently. Giving you an idea of how much snow we’ve had is extremely difficult to convey; after the last 30″s on Saturday I’ve given up trying to remember how much we’ve had in total. And then last night, just as we’d managed to dig ourselves out enough to lead fairly normal lives, it started snowing again. It’s still snowing. It will continue to snow until midnight.
It feels like we’re victims of a big, white, cold, siege.
One of the best things about being a computer programmer is that nowadays there’s almost no need to be physically in the office, so you can easily work from home. One of the worst things is that you easily can work from home, so even if you can’t leave the house because of the insane amount of snow, you can still work. Snow days are no longer holidays. But Michele is off, and so she managed to build a beautiful pigeon-shaped snowman^H^H^Hbird.
However, thanks to the hopelessly inadequate electricity supply to my office’s business park, we can no longer login to any of our office gear. Also, the chances of anyone being able to get into the office to fix things is very small considering that “they’ve taken the roads in” (as Mrs Doyle would say).
So we’re patiently sitting around in our warm cosy house, with a large supply of food, and awaiting the major power cut that will cause mass panic and civil disorder.
Still, it’s nice to know we have witnessed a record being broken. I just hope that we don’t end up witnessing any other records being broken.
