eleneariel: (Winter (tree))
A foot or more of snow*, 40+ mph winds (snowdrifts! First time in my life I've seen snowdrifts!) people stuck EVERYWHERE because Oklahoma can't handle even 3" of snow and yet people think they can drive in it anyway, the turnpike is closed, the major interstates are closed, the MALL IS CLOSED. And oh yeah, pretty much everyone else too. Even the Tulsa World isn't publishing, for what I think is the first time in their history. And for the first time in the seven years I've worked there, the library is for-real officially closed. We've opened late/closed early/worked with skeleton staff, but we've never just absolutely closed before.

As long as I have power I am happy as a clam, and since the power has stayed on (good boy!) I am indeed happy as a very happy clam. Have baked brownie cookies and rosemary walnut bread, spent hours in bed reading (Clockwork Angel has captured my attention in a way I did not expect) and writing letters, watched Fawlty Towers (CK WATT?!) and Hogan's Heroes, and generally enjoyed the heck out of this snow day.

I rather suspect tomorrow will be much the same. Cause, uh, it's gonna take awhile to move all this snow.

*I tried to measure it with a wooden skewer. We officially have more than a skewer deep of snow.
