I grew up at the end of a quarter-mile-long driveway which itself was at the end of a long, dead-end road. We had a few blizzards like the one we're having now when I was a kid and I remember them well. For one thing, we were helpless to leave the house until a snowplow came and as you can imagine, we were low on their priority list.
My mother worked in advertising and I recall one big snowstorm that hit right when she had an entire crew booked for a car dealer's TV commercial. Also booked for the spot: a lion. Ever the professional, she saddled up her horse, put packages of raw meat in the saddlebags for the lion, and rode up to the main road to put her horse in a neighbor's barn and catch a ride to the shoot.
When I woke up this morning, the snow hadn't really gotten a foothold yet, but I stayed home and worked from my home office anyway because I well remembered those blizzards from my childhood. Those, and the snowstorm last week that caused my usual twelve-minute commute home to take more than two hours.
I get a lot done when I'm working from home because the distractions are very minimal, especially if I refrain from letting any cats come upstairs to "help" me.
My home office is set up so that my computer faces into the corner and I have a window on either side of me. I watched the snow fall all day long until it covered all the leaves in the yard and finally accumulated to an impressive degree, as you can see from the photo above. I was very glad I'd stocked up on groceries the previous two days.
Lunch today was a peanut butter and bacon sandwich. It turned out I didn't have any lettuce, but bok choy worked just fine as a substitute. Dinner was Zesty Roast Beef Sandwiches, which cooked in the Crock-Pot all day long.
Here's how Dr. Jones and Trillian spent their day (I presume):
That's the first video I've ever edited, so don't judge it too harshly. I'm hoping to start doing videos more often. I turned off the sound on purpose because all you could hear was dialogue from the BBC version of "Jane Eyre," which I was watching when I noticed how cute the cats were being.
Did it snow where you are? How did you spend your day?
