I've been refraining from posting lately because RL kind of sucks, but I figured this was worth mentioning:
It was sunny with flurries Sunday morning, but when I got out from church at noon you could hardly see in front of you on account of the heavy snowfall.
The university (by which I am employed), struggled valiantly to remain open on Monday, but cancelled classes at 11:30 am. The rest of the university closed down and set everyone home at 1 pm.
I woke up this morning to find the university remained closed today, and won't open tomorrow. That last part is due to the fact that London city transit had to shut the busses down at 3pm (effectively signalling the closure of the entire city), because the busses were getting stuck in snow drifts.
Apparently we're in a state of near emergency:The stats:
On Monday: 31 inches/80 cm
On Tuesday: 6 inches/ 15 cm (so far)
Three Day Accumulation so far: Over a meter to date. I've been hearing 120 cm (47 inches)
On the plus side, this five day weekend we're getting has given me a lot of time to bake.
I've also been listening to Trans-Siberian Orchestra's Christmas albums. One song, "What is Christmas?" defines it as an excuse to tolerate snow ;)ETA:
I don't think I've ever heard so many ambulance sirens in all my time living across from the hospital. Why do people drive in bad weather?
On a side note, if you want to sponsor my half marathoning, go to my fundraising page.
I've been snowed out of running for the past three days, but as soon as the university opens again I'll be back on the treadmill and track, and as soon as the roads are plowed I'll be back on them too.
