Well, today we hit the trifecta! Quite often, we close because one of the caveats have occurred and management feels that it is no longer safe for people to be trying to get home (either walking or driving). But this afternoon, we legitimately have met all the conditions set out to stay home in our jammies.
Ok, well the jammies thing probably isn't in the official policy, but it is our 'house rule'.

Suddenly though, we aren't living in the dark. It's damn near daylight on the way to work! Soon I'll be able to cut through the tundra on the way home without risking life and limb.
To top it all off? There was liquid water outside today. Outside, water has two states right now... solid and vapour (as in ice/snow and breath). Even though the thermometer said that it was -29, the sun was warm enough to melt a bit of snow.
Without going out over the Christmas season, it has seemed like a long, cold, dark winter so far. But the forecast says a high of -5 on the weekend, so maybe there is hope that spring isn't too far away.
