i went to the library early, of course flanders had closed it again without telling the public while other city offfices were open then. then i went to the barbershop, stopped to visit ny friends auto repair shop, then went home. stayed in the rest of the day. i hate snow.

Flanders had better stop this wussification and get his butt to his job. He needs to open the friggin' library.
To Flanderize: 'Bail on one's responsibilities in the name of extremely ridiculous caution' I looked it up in my imaginary dictionary!

Sorry, but I had read yesterday evening on the J-W site that the library wouldn't open today until 1 PM. That seems like fair enough warning. And I sure as heck wouldn't have expected it to be open at all yesterday.

Personally, with all the closings and warnings, I would have called the library in advance. But I'm not you.

Shoveled snow off my porch, got some wood for the fireplace, built fire, watched it snow! Repeated several times. My front sidewalk was clear but my porch kept getting covered with snow. I'll be tackling the street sidewalk today.

Yes. Checked up on mother and got her a few things.

Returned home to shovel... and shovel...and shovel...

Had to work, but got off a whole 45 minutes early.

ladyky63 7 years, 3 months ago

Had to work since WalMart never closes for anything.

nut_case 7 years, 3 months ago

Yes I left the house - Between that pesky 'no work, no pay' thing (or burn up a day of vacation), making sure the sidewalks are clear or face a fine, checking in on the elderly, bringing wood in for the fire, etc, I think I actually spent most of the day 'out of the residence'.

I work at a power plant... so yes I did.

nut_case 7 years, 3 months ago

Regardless of RETICENT, from those of us who pay too much in taxes to be able to afford a 15 gigawatt generator, I want to say thank you for going to work and keeping the power on.

dogsandcats 7 years, 3 months ago

Since I don't work for the state, KU, the library, or the district court, I still had to work yesterday. So yes.

Liberty275 7 years, 3 months ago

I went out just to watch the people with 2wd drive cars get stuck.

labmonkey 7 years, 3 months ago

15KW...pfhuh. I make 15KW every time I urinate.... I mock your 15KW.

zikzak 7 years, 3 months ago

Had to work, but when I roll into work at 4am nothing was coming down.

Tammie Bryant 7 years, 3 months ago

Even though KU was closed, the Health Center remains open. Therefore, I worked.

jhawkinsf 7 years, 3 months ago

voted no since I didn't think going outside just to shovel snow counted.

domino 7 years, 3 months ago

Yup - went to work - came home for lunch - got my car stuck in the drift in my drive - shoveled it out and put it in the garage. Husband got home from his shift so took his 4 wheel drive back o work then home and didn't set my nose out again!

Cabin fever after staying in all day Tuesday. Drove around in the 4 wheel drive for entertainment. Small compact cars are not worth the gas savings when you get stuck in 2 inches of snow.

riverdrifter 7 years, 3 months ago

I went out & walked around and took 38 pictures in town (BC) then went for a drive in the country and got some more. Will download to a disc & maybe a hundred years from now somebody will see them. Or not.

weatherguy48 7 years, 3 months ago

Yup. Dug out my car while standing in knee-high drifts, got stuck like 15 times on my way to work, got to work, and we closed half an hour later. Drove back home. Ugh.
