Snowed In

For those of you who haven't been keeping up with the weather in much of Middle TN, a nice wintery storm that has moved through, leaving just enough ice and snow to close down the post of practically all work.
It started Monday night, with ice storm warnings for roughly 12-14 hours. The rain began in the middle of the night, just as the temperature began to drop just above freezing. The rain didn't let up at all yesterday (freezing everything but the road), as we went about our daily routine on Tuesday. However, just before leaving for the day, we got an update that the our day would not begin on Wednesday until 0930 (a roughly 3 hour delay) due to snow in the forecast.
Sure enough, the snow fell and our day was pushed back to 1200 for only a brief period of time. It wasn't 20 minutes later that I received a phone call from my company commander that the post would be closed for the day!
It was a nice treat for me since Leslie also got today off from work, despite having to do some damage control this morning. She had scheduled former Navy pilot and astronaut Capt. John McBride to speak at APSU this evening, but had to quickly reschedule him for tomorrow evening instead. Now, the only thing we've got scheduled for today is absolutely nothing! I know that's hard for many of you to believe, but hopefully it'll stay that way all day!
Take care.
