Finally, a blizzard!

...right on time for Ecuador staging.

I love snow but the predictions are ridiculous. I've heard people say it'll be anywhere between 8 and 26 inches, and it sounds like most reports are leaning towards the high end. There's always the chance it won't be as bad as the news says, but if it's anything close, our flights out of Chicago are going to be canceled. We got an email from our staging coordinator assuring us that even though we might miss all or part of staging, we'll get to Ecuador eventually. I'm just sad I might miss part of the 'Peace Corps experience' - what staging is really like.

Plows began salting the roads before the snow even started falling about two hours ago. The roads just started getting pretty slippery right when I got home from what was probably my last ride in my Jeep for another couple years.

Well... going to try to enjoy this!

EDIT: United 600 is canceled. Calling SATO travel first thing in the morning!


  1. Good luck! I hope you're able to make it to Staging. Safe travels!

  2. Thank you!! Our flights were just canceled, so we all need to call SATO in the morning to see what to do.

  3. Hey there! Thanks for checking out the blog! Time to get the heck out of that blizzard and down to where there are only two seasons and neither of them are winter. Best of luck in staging and training!

  4. Thanks!! I do love the snow though. I wish I could have seen the great blizzard :(
