Well hell, I could be stuck here for days!
email I just got from our admin:

"At 10 AM this morning, XXXX began plans to activate the Incident Command Center in preparation of the arrival of Snowstorm Carter. The planning objectives are: to assure adequate staffing for all shifts as well as to assure safety and security for staff and patients; assure adequate supplies of food, water, medication, and utility needs; and provide safe access to the grounds. Staff may be required to remain on grounds until relief staff arrive.

The Command Center may be formally activated if more information indicates that is necessary. I will communicate further developments as they occur."

11. So...
have you had your slobber knocked recently or is that dependent on the snow storms?

Just wonderin' down here is Indiana where there's not much slobber knockin' going on from what I can tell.

:-)

12. No, really? You can't possibly name them, can you?
I live at the eastern end of Lake Ontario and we'd run through the alphabet by the middle of the first week!

5. Politely remind the issuer of the memo that the Donner Party places them first on the list
in case of an actual snow-in.

9. woohoo! It's good to be part of the "non-essential peronnell"
I get to go home NOW before the storm even hits! Although, I am a little offended at the non-essential bit :(

Just the Mental Health Institute where I work, you always have to have a contingency plan when you're locked in with the criminally insane :P
