We don't get that much snow, and it's always wet, heavy, slushy stuff that makes driving very difficult. It's not the nice, powdery snow others get. And, being in the mountains, it ain't flat here. We aren't that accustomed to driving in it, there is limited road cleanup, and many roads have deep ditches on the sides. If you slip and slide, it may be all over but the shouting. (as we say).
So, the grocery stores are mobbed with folk getting milk, bread, and other essentials. (That reminds me to get to the ABC store).
I met with my regional executive person on Tuesday about the coming out stuff. he is supportive, and I think he "get's it." He's not sure that my constituency will get or whether I'll (ultimately) keep my job. In this strange company, it's not up to him but the "customers." He is concerned that I balance coming out needs with financial/family needs. In other words: if I lose my job, can I support the children and former wife.
Unless I find a rich sugar daddy (and soon) I can't. So, timing issues are in the mix right now.
It is slow, but it moves. Glacial, but maybe there is some warming. I'm getting through this depressing (for me) season. Slogging along, but grateful.
PS: Yes, we got snow. 8 to 14 inches worth, depending on where in the mountains you live. Our house: 14". Brrrr.
