I work at the LLBean call center and last night we were telling people to expect an extra day on the deliveries because of the storm. See..... don't blame me!

Wow, I got my "no school" call at 5:30 and looked out the window. Called a friend and decided we'd go snowshoeing. Got up 2 hours later and I am going nowhere! What a dumping!

I hope LLB lets me sleep on their floor tonight.
