It started snowing here this morning around ten. Matt and I planned to ditch work early and get down to Dalton. We learned early this morning that Matt's Aunt Flora had a heart attacked last night, and had to have a stent put in. She's fine, we are told. But she was in ICU and we needed to get down there.
But the best laid plans of mice and men gang aft a'gley. Which means that while we left work at 11 and 11:30 respectively, by the time we got home, we made a quick decision not to drive. Good call, as we found out 45 minutes later they'd shut down I-24 in Rutherford County. The family assure us we were fine to stay put.
After a quick walk to Portland Brew for some emergency coffee rations, we came home and I set up an impromptu office in the den. At five, I shut it down, and we've spent the evening in a kind of snowy stupor. I'd say we're at about 4 inches so far, and no end in sight. The snow moves out tomorrow around noon.
Because we'd gotten so little sleep last night, we napped from 7-9, and now we're disoriented.
Matt is a little stir crazy, and he's going for a late night walk. I'd go, but the weather has caused my sinuses to go insane, and I have a post-nasal sore throat. Seems imprudent to go out and let the sleet fall on me.
I don't know... I'll have to keep you posted. Matt has some good photos, and I promise to get them up here soon.
