    I will soon expect to see the tauntauns and the wampas.

    Five inches here in the past 2 hours. I was at school when they decided to close the campus and the ride home took an hour. :p

    Everyone be careful!

    We've got about 2 or 3 inches here. Its funny, because when i lived in Wisconsin we would get like a foot. And they would still have school the next day because we had tons of people plowing the roads, putting salt down at like 3am in preparation for the morning. Here, we get like an inch, and suddenly schools everywhere are canceled, or at least delayed. Fark. I wish i had gone to school over here instead.

    We have about 3 inches here and it's just slowing down. This means fewer customers at work. Problem is, the ones we do get are teenagers who take the sex books to the corners and read them. Arg! I hate babysitting my sex bays! Stupid children!

    Have you got the lovely ones that rip out the pages and pocket them and file the cover back on the shelf? :)

    I digress though--5.5 inches and still snowing.

    I is in Bellevue and we have like 3 inches or so. I'm off tomorrow so I'm okay with it. I might have to go garbage bag sledding soon!

    Oh, never thought of that. I better check the pages. Though, I am missing one copy of the Pop-up Book of Sex, and I'm wondering if it went home with the last group of idiots. Arg!

    All schools closed! TON of snow out there. I just measured and we got another inch after I went to bed. So 4 inches here! And I'm not that far from the water! YAY for snow!!! [face_dancing]

    Same here. I felt so guilty staying home but it was way too slippery to go anywhere.

    went to work, found out I couldve called in and not have to, but we closed at 4pm anyways. Tomorrow I might not go in because I have to be there at 7am and the hill I go down is nasty (I slid and fishtailed down it this morning).

    I had to spend an hour and a half scraping ice and sowing salt all over my apartment driveway, which is at the bottom of a hill. Luckily I had no work today, but I might call in tomorrow anyway cause not working is better than working.

    There's got to be 7 inches here, and the streets are a mess. Tacoma hasn't had this kind of snow in at least 8 years, and before that not in my lifetime! We were not ready for it, and driving in town is pure hazard. May have to skip the con party, it's just too iffy :(

    The Center of Hell (White Center) never closes!! All stores open normal hours, despite very icy roads. It's amazing how many people just HAVE to have that one quilting magazine during a snow storm! :rolleyes:

    I called in at work again. I have to go to the bookstore still but the library was cool enough to tell me to stay home. The car was completely frozen so I could't unlock the doors. And the roads are even more slippery.

    School was open today but luckily I had no classes anyways today.

    Lucky. Work knows I live 4 blocks away, and I already walked yesterday. :p

    Besides, I like my job. The customers can fly off cliffs, but the job is fine.

    (PS: I got the computer section now too. I now have more bays in the store than anyone at 108. Eek. [face_hypnotized] )
