Glad you're here!
Yesterday I left for work at the usual time, as all we had were a few big flakes falling but not accumulating (had a 2 to 8 shift). I headed towards Pittsfield on 20, and thought, "hmm - the roads are getting a little funky." By the time I reached Stewarts in New Lebanon, I had to pull in, call my partner, and say that I'd be late, as the roads were a hideous, unplowed mess. Route 20 over the mountain was horrid - 15 to 20 MPH, and near-whiteout conditions - and Pittsfield was a complete wreck, with accidents all over the place. It was the weirdest thing! I got home - no snow at all here. Good - I don't want it anyway!
I'm actually sort of happy for the cold, but only because my fridge finally gave up the ghost, and we can't get the new one I've ordered from Home Depot delivered until Friday the 21st. I'd ordered online and they gave me that delivery date, so I checked with the store and they confirmed that everything comes from the same distribution center, so I'd be stuck either way. So, the tiny back room that serves us as a trash room and general junk storage is currently acting as a makeshift fridge. Fortunately, we'd already pulled everything out of the freezer and stuck it all in the big freezer in the garage, so we didn't lose anything good (read: expensive). Still, ugh! I now have a large magnet holder taking up space in the kitchen.
Amy, I was inside all day yesterday at work! What a surprise when I left the building at 5! I called home and we only had a few inches.....I hate it when Berkshire county has vastly different weather than us!! Are you up for selling a couple dozen of "laid in the USA" eggs on Tuesday? If I remember I will send along a couple of kefir grains.......
