March the Lion

Winter has returned with a vengeance to the Ottawa valley today. Or is that "returned squared", since the last couple of days have been pretty weird, with freezing rain and ice pellets followed by a mild day at 80C, and there was winter storm right before that?

Woke up this morning to find a good 6-8 cms. of snow on the ground outside, and the forecast calls for another 10 cms. or so before the late afternoon. March is playing its tricksy games with us all, having come in like a lion, and then lulled us into feeling good, before jumping for the jugular and all. Looks like it's going to be typical winter weather.

I called in to work and told them that I was going to work from home today and my boss was amenable to that. Since I had the business laptop here at work, since I took it home with me yesterday based on the winter storm advisories, he was fine with this - and they didn't have to courier the laptop to me. Of course, this means I will have to unbury the car sometime in the early hours tomorrow morning...

Coffee break time is over now, so back to the translation job I'm on right now...
