Candlemas and snows

If Candlemas day be fair and bright winter will have another flight,
If Candlemas day be dull and drear winter has gone for another year.

But what about if it snows all day??

It started at lunch time yesterday and gradually got heavier with hail overnight, a few breaks in the virtually constant snow during today but the forecasters are predicting 20 inches (yes, nearly two feet) more of snow overnight. So like many offices we're a little short staffed today so grant us a little latitude if we're not quite as fast usual. However, our big worry is that the lights keep flickering so we're just hoping the power stays online.

Hope you're all warm and dry and have made fantastic snowmen to populate the winter wonderland.
