Good Morning Everyone
Welcome in February in my world. I've waited for snow all season and it waits until the end of February to snow. I went to the market this morning and within an hour this is what happened. Ice started falling and soon it was a royal mess.
Below is the view from my porch 2 hours later. It looks like it's set in for the day. There is about a foot of snow over the ice at this time. The woods look beautiful with the ice glistening off the branches. It truly is a sight to see. Snow is like anything else in life, it's all in how you view it, beautiful or dreadful, perception is everything.
Last week it was so warm we were all running around in short sleeves and lots of people had shorts on. Today I think most people won't be running around in shorts, but I could be wrong.
The forecast is calling for a lot of ice tonight, all schools have been cancelled and there are a lot of happy kids in our area. Last year we had a huge ice storm which crippled the area for 3 days.
That was pretty rough. I ended up staying at work for all 3 full days before other nurses could get in to relieve us. We managed well and the fire department kept checking on us to make sure our generators were holding out ok. It was rough but it was also kind of fun. We all had to work together and take shift of 4 hours to sleep and then trade off again. We really got to know each other better and I think we developed a true working relationship in knowing we could depend on one another. We didn't have cook staff that could get in to work so patients had nurse cooked meals. It was determined by the patients that we were better at nursing than cooking. Again, all in the perception.
Time for Jacob and I to go play in the snow.
Have an awesome day!
