........it's going to be a better commute for me this morning. Yesterday they were predicting more of the snow/ice stuff, falling all night, then warming up slightly and turning to rain by this morning. The hospital even cancelled the Back Pain seminar last night, and as I was calling all the people who had signed up, they all seemed relieved to have it rescheduled for a later date. I heard the pitter patter of something about 8pm, looked out and it seemed to just be rain. So I get up this morning and the temperature is 38 degrees and all the snow in my front yard is gone. YEAH !!!!!!!!!!!! It seems a nice south wind came in and warmed my area up, so the snow/ice fell as rain. Now up north of here they did get some of the icky stuff and I'm sorry for them. They are still making school closure announcements on the local morning news for areas in northern, western Washington,
Jim went back to work last night, and was supposed to work 4pm to 12:30am. He said he'd packed a bag, because in case the weather got bad, he was going to come here and sleep. I live about one mile from where he works and his place is 12 miles away. He called me about 5:15pm and asked if my power was still on and I said it was. It seems the whole business complex where he works was totally dark. They were going to call the power company and see what was going on...certainly it wasn't weather connected as nothing was going on at that hour. My guess was that someone ran into a power pole. Anyway, about 6:30pm I heard a vehicle in the drive way and it was Jim. The power company told told them, they'd get it fixed as soon as they could but all their repair people had gone home for the day, so they had to call them back into work. So all the employees were told to go home. He stayed for about 30 minutes and then took off for his place. His face looks pretty good. The steri strips are still on his cheek where it got cut open but the yellow bruising and the swelling is almost gone. He sees the plastic surgeon about his nose on Friday.
Well, I'm off to get ready for work...I hope everyone has a good day. Linda
