About 10:15 this morning, the Babe phoned me and said "So, waddaya think about working at home?"
"What do I think about what?" I replied, always quick on the uptake.
"You obviously haven't looked outside, have you?"
"Nope, just a minute." I keep the blinds and shutters closed most of the time because I like it without too much natural light when I'm working. Up went the venetian blinds.
Snow! Lots of snow!
"Pretty impressive!" I said when I got back to the phone. "How much snow is it?"
"The real question," she replied, "is not how much snow, but how much ice."
"Oh, dear!" I said.
"Yes, I made it into the office over the bridge only because I know how to drive on snow. And even then I saw a lot of cars that had gone off the road on Delta Highway. Only a few of the people made it into the office, too."
"Well, I shall revel in the fact that I work at home, then!" I said.
I got the camera so I could take a few quick snaps. It's looking like there's maybe 3-4" of snow so far. It's still snowing a little, so how much more may accumulate by the end of today isn't clear.
When I popped my head out the back door to take shots of the backyard, I could hear kids playing in one of the nearby yards and a father helping them. And the street in front of the house slopes gently, so there are three or four kids sledding and tobogganing down the street.
I'm really glad that I don't have to go anywhere farther than up and down the stairs today, though. It'd be a pain to drive in this.
