2. Last email I got during the night
indicated she didn't know if she was going to end up staying at work all night. She'll check in eventually, I hope.

4. I know y'all haven't had much snow over the last few years
but to make up for it in two seeks is insane.

Stay warm and stay safe. :)

5. Hi lizziegrace.
The weather itself doesn't seem as bad as last week, but we're just halfway into the storm now. But I think anyone who has to drive anywhere this time is having a much harder time. All the new snow doesn't really have anywhere to go but on the old snow.

I hope anyone who has to go out has a safe trek. Safe home, as they used to say.

:hi:

7. Isn't "safe home" from a JT song?
"Home by Another Way"?

8. Indeed!
No one I ever knew used that phrase, but I really liked it, so now I keep it handy when people need to be out in the nasty weather.

Safe home, as they used to say
Keep a weather eye to the chart on high
And go home another way

9. That was brought up during an advent sermon at church
"They had to go home by another way."

a man who would slaughter the innocents will not cut a deal for you...

How true.

11. Well, we got about two inches or so in northwest NM.
It's still overcast and coming down a bit. I just hope it clears up by Tuesday, I have to drive to Albuquerque and then fly back to Chicago.

13. I talked to my dad, and he said that this front's supposed to clear up today.
And, I'm getting better. My ear was clogged but now I can hear again. Though, I still have a bit of a stuffy nose and a cough. x( :P :hug:

14. A friend who's a nurse said
use Afrin nasal spray the day before, the day of and the day after travel. It'll help with the pressure problems you'll face flying.

16. Worth a shot
Nothing worse than flying with so much pressure in your sinuses you want to scream.

20. The cold is worse than the snow
I went out to shovel, and it's really windy. As a result, there's another big snowdrift outside my garage like last time. We've gotten one car out, but we might not go anywhere because our street is sheer ice. Still, much less snow than last time, but way colder. My fingers were red when I came in, and that's after I tried two different pairs of gloves to try and keep warm. The wind chill is five, but I've been way colder in Canada.

21. Sounds miserable
:(

We're in the mid 50's here. This cannot be Ohio in late December. Something's terribly wrong.

22. Try being in Toronto when it's -35
The first year I went to school there we didn't see temps above -20 for two months. They put up signs warning the foreign students who had never seen snow to be sure and wear a heavy coat and not to accept any dares to put a part of their body to a piece of frozen metal. They also said that if we see a homeless person out at night and it's below -20, don't talk to them, but call 911 immediately because they're probably mentally ill (to be out in weather like that) and that if they fall asleep they would probably die. The first night it snowed, a Pakistani kid on our floor ran outside at 2am because he'd never seen it snow before. We ambushed him with a bunch of snowballs :evilgrin:
