Returning to Normal

Everything did stay shut down yesterday. Signature Theatre actually sent me an email and left me a message on my answering machine. I'll just need to call them to exchange my ticket for another day. I used the time to get some house hold stuff done (but still have plenty to go), as well as reading and napping.

My condo association's annual holiday party was, however, a go, since walking downstairs (and/or a few feet outside) is not a huge hardship. They put out a pretty nice spread of heavy appetizers and desserts, plus wine and beer. One of the people on the social committee told me she'd gone out to buy the wine in the morning. My Scottish neighbor did not, alas, wear his kilt this year.

I get another day off today since the federal government is shut down and my company follows their lead. We have an emergency shutdown code we charge to for situations like this, so it doesn't make me use up any vacation either. I'm not sure if that means that we'll reschedule the (corporate) office party, but I am guessing it will be tomorrow.

The metro is supposedly completely open so I would have been okay, but there is still some bus service that isn't operating. Major streets should be alright, but I'm sure side streets are still a mess. I actually need to drive tomorrow, since I have a dentist appointment, but I'm pretty close to streets which get plowed and get traffic, so I don't think it will be too bad.
