Snow Day! Snow Day! Snow Day—Sike!

by Brittany Geragotelis

I went to bed last night happy and warm, thinking that I would be working from home today, cuddled up under a mountain of blankets in my PJ's with my TV on in the background and typing away at my computer. I even went to the store last night to pick up cream cheese for the bagels I'd be eating as I did my work this morning.

And then I woke up and saw that the roads looked pretty clear—at least clear enough to walk to the subway—and the news said that public schools were all still open for the day. So, alas, here I am, at work instead of holed up in my warm apartment.

I know. How sad am I? case you got a fake-out this morning too and HAD to go into work while others in the country have a snow day, here's something to melt your icy heart (and toes). Now, this guy's sort of a YouTube sensation. He has millions of followers and reviews viral videos, making all sorts of funny but questionable comments (watch out for language on here). The first part of the vid is a really funny cat bit (prepare to LOL; if you're in the office, your co-workers may think you've gone crazy), the second one isn't all that funny and/or cool; BUT the third one? It made my heart go all warm and fuzzy. It's about a guy who's homeless but who has an incredible...well, you'll just have to watch to see.

Okay, so there you go. Enjoy your day—even if you're like me and had to go into work!

SO we had a dumping of snow all night and so I thought the same thing! Of course, in TRUE northwest fashion, woke up to 5 inches of mush and rain on the snow. Yuck. So the roads are clear and apparently now it's 50 degrees...moody weather!

OMG. I was soooo sad to have to go in!I can't express how much I could use a mental snow day right now. Sounds like you could use one, too! I saw that it turned to rain over there! And of course, the snow's back on Saturday....when I have to fly to Atlanta!
