Snow Day and Famous Dave's

I woke up this morning to about 8 inches of snow. I figured everyone would be on snow delay anyway, so I didn't need to rush. However, I did finish shoveling out the sidewalk and enough of the driveway by 9am, so that's when I went to work. With snow and ice on some secondary roads and generally wet conditions on the highway, it took me 15 minutes to get there. How long does it normally take me to get to work? Also 15 minutes. Conclusion? I've been driving too slowly on days when the road was fine.

Anyway, I was the first one at the office. It wasn't until 2 hours later when I was joined by a second person and we topped out at 3 people for the day. It wasn't a terribly busy day and I got what I needed to do done by the early afternoon.

Famous Dave's had a "snowed in" special, so I went to their Wilmington location in the evening. I had a Georgia chopped pork and catfish combo platter. Like certain other restaurant chains, Famous Dave's has a selection of sauces at every table. I have to say though that the "Devil's Spit" sauce, which they claim to be their hottest sauce, isn't that hot. It doesn't even begin to burn until you've had a lot of it.
