It's snowing here today, we might have an inch on the ground. It would be the day to be at the ski area, but I can't get away today, maybe tomorrow. With maybe an inch of snow all of the schools in Eugene are closed......ha ha!

They are cutting hours at my job. Full timers who are guaranteed 40 hours are now down to 24. They were going to do layoffs but to avoid it they just cut everyone back. This went back 21 years.....

Well 24 hours is better than 0.

Maybe you can take up part time bar tending. Perhaps you can make a better margarita than me.

PDX needs a big cup of HTFU with whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles... schools are closed, buses have chains, taxi companies aren't taking reservations.

Yes... it snowed.

It is melting away now.

Good lord.

I haven't been hit yet. They say those with management skills won't be touched because we can do things that the others are losing their hours for. We make good fill ins...

I don't believe it though. I'll get hit. Watch.

I am @ work. Quiet night so far. Waiting for the pizza delivery guy who should be here anytime now. I'm the only one in the building. It's gonna feel kinda lonely when you all go to sleep.

OMG... pizza guy came here... I'm no longer hungry. Problem is, I ate a whole big dipper pizza all by myself. I feel like I'm gonna explode... OMG... I'm so full that it hurts.

Kicking back in Vancouver waiting to board the last leg of my flight home... they tell me that it is -32C there.

6 weeks in Portland has softened me up so much I am likely to be culled by feral cats...

Am guessing one little dog is gonna be pretty happy to see me.
