Got to keep the loonies on the path

It's been forever since I've written something here, but reading other people's blogs has me feeling like I should try to write something here more often. A lot of things have happened since I last wrote something here in January, and I don't think I'll try to recap too much of it. One thing worth mentioning though is that in the middle of the year, I moved teams within Microsoft to work on the team responsible for Xbox Live Community Games.

In more recent events, Seattle has once again been crippled by a winter storm. This year seems far worse than anything I remember seeing before; we had about 7 inches of snow today, which probably seems like nothing to folks in areas that regularly get snow, but for a region typically sees no more than that much in Winter it's a lot for a day.

Today was a bit of an adventure too; I ended up heading into work with a co-worker despite the horrible weather. Making it there wasn't bad at all (which I suppose is easy for me to say since I didn't drive), but it was interesting to watch as emails flew in from folks working from home, or watching the department of transportation giving updates via twitter, all the time chilling out at my desk at work.

After a lot of fretting (and me thinking it might be easiest to try and walk back to my place), we ended up trying to take the freeway back anyway and made it back fine. While the thought of being stranded got a bit frightening, I'm glad I left the house instead of staying cooped up at home. That said, I think I'm fine being a shut-in tomorrow if we get more snow or if it's still really icy out.
