Well, the news says it's 16. The entire length of the Willamette valley is snowed in. There's a winter storm warning for all of Western Washington and Oregon, it seems. The Doppler looks like we're being attacked by a big white blob.

And yet I'm awake, and getting ready for work. I'm interested in seeing whether anybody will come and tell me work is closed, or if they'll just leave me up there at the front desk. I wasn't even supposed to come in until 7:30, but the girl who wouldn't answer her phone to help the morning girl out yesterday (the same girl who volunteered to take the morning shift this morning) called me last night and asked me to take the early shift. Argh. Oh well. It's more fun to be at work when something like this is going on.

You should! I think they got more snow than we did.

I'm sure they did... being in the coast range at 800 feet or so :/

at least you aren't too far away from your job, right? I just walked the pups and the flakes are still coming down. I have to take brandt to work at noonish, I hope things are okay on the highways then... he works all the way up by the airport. :P

Yeah, I work at Columbia Sportswear, right there on the corner of Cornell and 143rd.

You BE CAREFUL at noon! That's when the freezing rain is supposed to start! MAX isn't even running - maybe he should take the shuttles over to work so you don't have to worry about it? It's going to be really really dangerous.

hmmmm... I have a friend who lives on 42nd and powell who said that things were really bad over there too, she works at PSU and has a snow day today. maybe he should call in, that sucks to lose the $$$ though. :(

on a side note, I really wish I had snowpants! I want to make a snowman.

Well, I don't know if our employee store is open, but if it is, you can come buy some. ;) Otherwise, I don't think I can help you. hehe
