Waiting for the NATIONAL GUARD
I am supposed to work tonight at Johns Hopkins. I am an RN in the NICU with all the babies. I called to tell work I couldn't make it out of my neighborhood and I was told the National Gaurd has been activated and the Hospital was coordinating ways for everyone to get to work. I am ready and waiting in case they call and can get me now even though my shift is not until 7pm tonight. I am waiting for the call to walk about a mile to the nearest cross street. I don't think they take you home once they get you there. I am packing enough clothes and food for a couple of days. I have to work Sat, Sun and Mon night anyway so I may as well just stay there or in a nearby hotel until the roads are safer to pass.
Look how deep the snow is now! They says it's over 24 inches and it is still coming down with a prediction of 36 inches! The last storm Maryland saw that was this big was in 2003.
There has NOT been a snow plow come down our court since last night. The entire community is private and about 50 homes are are totally snowed in!
I think Dale our Golden Retriever has about 10 pounds of snow balls on his belly! When he comes in from the outside I have to take him to the bath tub and rinse his belly with warm water. If I don't do that, I have snow balls dropping all over the house as they melt. He was eating the snow balls off of himself in this picture.
Our cars look like SUVs.
Last week we had a snow storm that required Kevin to drive me to work and pick me up. I was not comfortable making the drive. At that time, Kevin had put his boots in the trunk of my car and this morning when we getting dressed to go out in the snow to start shoveling, we realized his boots were still in the trunk of my car! This is how difficult it was to get to them out of the trunk! Funny.
