Shows still might go on tomorrow, which is when our tickets are. But our plane (the second one) got cancelled just a little while ago. There is another crack-of-dawn flight tomorrow, which would get us there in time, assuming it isn't cancelled, and assuming the show isn't cancelled... but it's currently full, and JetBlue doesn't do standby. You just have to keep calling back and having a representative check if any seats have opened up on the flight.

The good news is, we get all our money back from the hotel and the airline. If the show goes on, we can in theory resell our tickets on StubHub (and frankly even make a profit.) If the show is cancelled, the theater refunds our ticket price, but of course that's less than we paid StubHub for the tickets in the first place.

Honestly I hope the show is cancelled, because then we know there's no way it would have worked. Better than it happening, and we just couldn't get there.

I think this line's mostly filler.

Just spent an hour digging my car out, just so it wouldn't take three hours when I actually have to dig it out.






Flickr autotagged the first picture with "snow snowbank" and the second with "vehicle car", so I think I was successful.

The nice thing about this light blizzard condition is how it obscures the Hampton Inn sign and traffic lights that would normally be in the background.

Well, it took almost 2 hours for round two of digging, so my quest to avoid three total hours failed.

But I'm glad I did it across two days.

It's great that the sun is shining though. The melting helps that last bit that you miss while shoveling.

LJ, you left your lights on

Seeing all the pictures makes me almost happy that I am in LA, with my windows open, at 62 degrees. NEENER!

Y'all have fun shovelling now, y'hear?

Reee moat start. I parked strategically there. Backed up to the garage. First, I cleaned the snow off the jeep, then pulled forward enough to get the snow blower out... Cleared the snow where the jeep had been, then pulled back and attacked the driveway proper.
