The summer was a crazy time for us, we were in limbo between school and figuring out where the next job would take us and squeezing out every bit of fun with our friends and family in Utah. Posting about our adventures and much of anything that happened took a back seat to actually living those adventures. But I've got to document for posterity, so I'm warning you here comes the long, boring slide show.

|And so it Begins|
What the East calls Nemo, would be a regular old snow storm in the West. I asked my mom today how much snow they got with one of their snow storms this winter. She said 18 inches. We're projected to get 10 inches and the Governor is declaring a state of emergency. We most likely will lose power and it will take them a week to get the power back on because they refuse to bury the power lines and someone akin to the Mafia runs the world back here. I hope Mr. Governor can just get the power companies to actually work.
School was never closed for snow, never ever, when I was in Utah. The bus would crash, the roads would be unplowed, slick and dangerous but we were expected to be at school, work or appointments. I think we've had five or so either complete cancellations, late starts or early releases, thanks to snow. The roads have been clear and there has never been more than four inches. I just don't get it. Some days they've called a half hour before they are releasing the kids and expect us to have gotten the message and be there to get them. But I guess if it happens in NYC, it's always a big deal.
We'll see what tomorrow, after hours of snow brings, but for now, I'm not impressed Blizzard Charlotte/Winter Storm Nemo.
