As essential personnel, we have to be at work regardless of the weather and road conditions. While everyone else gets to enjoy a snow day, we are navigating icy roads and hazardous driving conditions to get to work. The buses are not running today.
So, Itzl and I get to work.
He’s dressed for going outside:
And here he is, enjoying a walk in the lee of the building, where the snow is at its shallowest.
As you can see from the dots, it’s still snowing.
Here’s Itzl making sure the plowed walkways are wide enough for people to walk down:
Shortly after this, he braved the deeper snow out in the open – 4″ – the snow came up to his shoulder. No pics because he moved too fast, and between his speed and the glare, all I got were blurs. Bad ones where all you saw was what looked like bloody snow (the red in his sweater).
And just because, here’s a picture of Nigel on his new favorite perch, the top of the chair:
Xoco is snug under blankets and won’t even poke her nose out for a picture, so no pics of her.
