Another storm

We're getting something between 6" and 8" today - not nearly as severe as this past weekend's, but still enough to close the office early. Nobody really seems to mind, however, as what we're currently getting is covering up the already appearing skankiness on Saturday's/Sunday's snow.

I'm noting a bit of a carnival air in the office today, too. People seem to be in really good spirits. Noted this even before the word that we were going to be given early release. Karen, my boss, sent me the following:
