I really want this career position. It would be great to (finally) have some security. I'd appreciate some assistance from you all, too. Thanks!

More importantly, I need your support for something else, too. My grandmother is having quite the battle right now. She's 83, but her health has been deteriorating over the past five or six years. She used to be quite healthy until my grandfather past away. Anyway, she has been in the hospital since Saturday morning and they don't quite know what is wrong. They've run tests but the doctors are baffled. With that said, I would appreciate your help and assistance on this matter, too. My grandmother has always been there for me and it is tough for me not to be around her during this tough time. Thank you!

Enjoy your Thursday, everyone. After today, there is only one more work day until the weekend!
My prayers are on the way!

Some of the school systems in Massachusetts, including Boston public schools, have already cancelled classes for tomorrow. And Mr.'s office has told everybody not to come in, which is a BIG relief to me. I'm planning to work from home. Some areas are now being told to expect 30+ inches. I hope we don't lose our power ... they'll have a tough time getting around to fix outages.
DTE did that when we lost power a few weeks ago - they also called the house three times: twice to ask if our power was back on and once to air a message from the president that praised their employees for working overtime to get the power back on.

Front and back door have knee-high-plus snow across them. I'll go out later to take pictures when the doors are passable. Public transportation will not be running today, and the driving ban is expected to remain in effect all day. The drifts are incredible. I don't know how much we got because of the drifting.

xmas365 and all New Englanders, I hope you're warm and safe. Looks like today will be shoveling and movies. Nobody's going anywhere for a while.
Glad to hear you are safe and warm, what a snow event this was.

This is the fourth year for me doing this and the funniest thing about it is knowing the restuarant down the hall is standing room only of all the moms who just cant stand to be left at home while their husbands and daughters enjoy a night of dancing. The dads get a kick at watching their heads peering in to see how it is going.
Have a good time.
