The snowstorm that threatens other parts of the coast hardly made its presence felt on my side of the corridor. The grass isn’t even matted with white — just spots here and there. The weather forecast is more rain with a possible mix of light now tonight but no storms. Angel will be fine.
I started hearing the pitter-patter of rain around an hour ago (around ten-ish) and I just looked out the window and everything is wet outside. Now I just read from Accuweather that we’re actually expecting some snow.
It doesn’t bode well for a week that starts with no express service on the 7 train (due to some construction) which means a 30-45 minute subway ride compared to the usual 15-20 on the faster line. I cannot afford not to show up at work tomorrow because the boss returns to the office after almost a week of business travel, and I don’t really know if I will see her again the rest of the week before she takes some time off in conjunction with the Martin Luther King holiday. So I am planning to go to work come what may. I am, however, debating about whether or not we should keep Angel at home instead of risking him and my mother-in-law battling the elements at the end of the day.
If the forecast holds, the snow is going to come any moment now. (It’s 8 mintues to midnight.) There is a possibility, though, that I might be able to leave work early tomorrow. “Early” will mean much earlier because again, the commute home will no longer be just an hour but slight longer now. (Will I brave it with the R train? Decisions, decisions…)
Meanwhile, I’ve been soaking up “Maging Sino Ka Man Book 1” before I get myself involved with Book 2. It helps me to keep in touch with Manila-based entertainment, and so far, I get my showbiz fix just watching episode after episode. I’m taking my time. No sense in rushing through it.
It’s been a productive weekend. I managed to compose several scrapbook layouts I printed out before the weekend, and I can say with pride that my Belgium Scrapbook is taking shape. I am not even halfway through yet, but it gives me a sense of fulfillment when I see my memories on paper and I get to relive the joy and adventure all over again by looking at those pages.
My bed beckons.. I have an early day tomorrow. Guess we’re up for another cold week.. just when I thought spring was sending feelers early.
