Snow Weekend!

As I am sure all of you have heard, Winter Storm Jonas Brother is on its way to North Eastern USA! When I first heard the warnings earlier in the week about this storm, I felt slightly panicked because I was scheduled to work both Saturday and Sunday. Granted, my commute to work is only ten minutes, but I absolutely loathe winter driving. With this cold Canadian blood running through my veins, I am pretty skilled at driving through ice and snow (I had to endure this on my recent trip to Canada), but it still terrifies me!

I even received an email a few days ago from my workplace saying that we are to work as scheduled and we need to bring overnight clothes as rooms are available for us to sleep in. Seeing as I work at a resort center/hotel, the sleeping conditions wouldn't be terrible at all! Definitely nothing to complain about. Sure, it would be a cool story to tell, but I don't want to stay the night at my workplace! Am I totally off base here?!

This morning my boss called and said significant numbers of guests have dropped, meaning...I HAVE THE WEEKEND OFF!! I never get both Saturday AND Sunday off without requesting for it off.

I'm not a fortune teller or anything, but I predict two whole days of being stranded inside with Jarryd, binge-watching The Office, Parks & Rec, and eating pizza and perogies! I am just so excited! :D Well, unless there is a power-outage, then that completely ruins my prediction. :/

And now, to give you a current update on the winter storm situation now at 12:30 PM:

Things are crazy out there...

* cough *

I shouldn't speak too soon though. The storm isn't supposed to start for a few hours yet. Truthfully, I don't know what to expect. It seems that there is a correlation between the higher the hype, the milder the storm turns out to be, AND the less the hype, the worse the storm. This storm has gained a lot of hype, so I guess only time will tell!

Stay safe everyone!


  1. Boy, its really coming down out there. Looks like it's too late for you to go out and get some chipies.

    1. I'm so glad I got those chips! They were vital to my survival.
