Well, after a break from the last storm I am starting to follow things again. Didn't get as much snow as advertised with the last storm, but it was still a solid storm with sleet and snow, enough to cause problems on the roads for a few days. Kind of frustrating to see all the models in pretty good agreement for at least 6 inches of snow here, though, and it end up being a little too warm. That's why I say the best they can show is a possibility when it comes to winter storms here. How much we actually get is just a guess.

Not sure I will be as active as I used to be because they are cracking down on people using the Internet at work. Been there 14 years and never had a problem getting my work done. Not my fault my brain works differently and I am smart enough to actually get my work done and can read something online at the same time. Funny thing is my manager used to ask me for updates whenever there is a potential winter storm. It's silly how some see using the Internet at work as wasting time worse than others who take smoke breaks all day or walk around and chat all day long.

Anyway, looks like things start get interesting again by the beginning of next week headed to the end of the month. I saw Greg Fishel from WRAL posted on Facebook yesterday about a possible noreaster. I think we'll have another shot at a winter storm here before the end of the month.

They cracked down on us years ago.  As the economy softens, employers need greater productivity and deploy strategies to that end, across the board to the employee base.  Pretty soon, they'll block social media and other "entertainment" sites.

Good point!  My antenna broke off a couple of years ago and reception is spotty in my building!

Good jobs are often hard to find. I have only been at my current job just over a year and there are rumors our jobs may go to India. Could go on and on but don't want to talk much about it on my day off. Lol. Sure hope you are right about the end of this month. Would love to see Timothy bust on his 2nd week of February call.

There really isn't a need for a 40 hour week anymore with most desk jobs, though. Most of the work could be done just as easily at home with the technology we have today. I think it's just funny that some look at looking at something online while doing your work as goofing off even if you get the work done, but don't say a word about people chatting all day to others or taking a smoke break every two hours if the work is getting done. Just think older folks look at the different when it's really not.

I have but a very few rules in my office - you must be clothed appropriately for a professional environment, you must say "Yes Sir/Mam" and "No Sir/Mam" to all outsiders, and no eating at the desk. I don't care if you get the work done standing on your head, with the internet going or earbuds blasting (if the clients can't hear it!) - so long as the work gets done correctly, efficiently, and timely, and most importantly that it's professionally done going out the door.

Endless warmth brings it out.

lol, They just told me iPhone's not suppose to get hacked? Told me to delete TapaTalk that it must be hacked? hence the reason I'm asking if anybody else has seen this..... 

Can't help you there b/c I don't use Tap Talk, but you may want to log out, clean the iPhone browser cache, and see if that helps

There were porn pictures posted in several threads in several forums yesterday. I haven't been on much the past few days so I missed the fun.
