Or, in other words: here comes a cubic shitload of snow.

Definitely not going into work on Tuesday. Possibly not on Wednesday. Might even blow off Monday, considering that the train doesn't normally get me home until around the time the blizzard warning goes into effect.

Good thing my knee is more or less kind of working properly now, isn't it?
