Finally a bit of snow

We had an all-company meeting on Friday afternoon. (Congrats to Brian Hone for being honored as AIT’s Software Engineer of the year!). Around 6pm as we left the meeting, it appeared to be snowing, but just itty bitty flakes. I went back to the office to work on a paper, and completely forgot about the snow until I left several hours later. I opened the door to find real, honest-to-goodness, make-the-roads-slippery snow falling quite rapidly, and already over an inch on the ground. Normally I would have been thrilled, but at 11pm when I just wanted to be home, a long slow snowy ride was not quite as appealing. I also assumed that late on a Friday night, there would be a minimal number of plows and salt trucks out (which was correct – the only set I saw was right at the Newburyport exit, so of little help to me). So, I started on my way, found the highways to be slushy but passable at 50 mph, and had a safe, alert drive home. This morning there is even MORE snow, probably not quite 4 inches [the minimum level for snow shoeing] but enough to shovel and coat the world in a pretty blanket of white. Hooray!
