If you are anywhere on the east coast (but apparently only south of NYC?), you are probably buried in snow. I know we are. It was a bit of a mess getting home from work last night…when I got to work at 3pm it hadn’t started snowing yet, and I kept peering out my patients’ windows to see when the snow would start. I think it started to come down around 6pm and I watched it get worse and worse with every hour! Nurses who had to work at 7am on Saturday came to the hospital Friday night to sleep since they figured it would be a mess (or impossible…) to get to work on Saturday morning. Right they were since when I woke up at nine this morning they had yet to plow my street! One of the night shift nurses (who come on at 11pm) got detoured and ended up being late…we were all worried that we would have to stay overnight if people couldn’t get in…luckily that didn’t happen!
I was super worried that I would be snowed in…while I hate my job, I would feel really bad not going. Nurses don’t get snow days!! It’s different if they tell me not to go versus me calling me and saying I’m not coming. By 10am I saw a plow go by at least four times, so I figured the roads might be not too terrible. The trick was going to be digging out my car, which I was admittedly not too excited about. I mean, that’s what boys are for! I set out to shovel away, and then I got some help from my roommate’s friend who is snowed in with us. Victory!
It’s kind of funny that I moved all the way from Chicago, expecting to avoid snow falls such as this, but oh no no no, the snow decided to bring Chicago to me! How nice of it.
Enough talk, let’s just get to the photo evidence of the disaster that occurred overnight.
Getting to work should be fun. I’m going to leave early and go super slow…I drove between 15-20 miles per hour all the way home last night and prayed alllllll the way up the giant hill my little Honda Civic had to climb. I’m nervous about going down it….gah. It’s going to be okay. I hope.
So much for my 15 mile run I was supposed to do today…
