snow and severance

It's snowing and snowing and snowing! It makes me happy :) This is a nice thing to come back to from vacation. Much better than bitter cold, especially when the vacation was in California!

I really hope Harvard gives us the day off tomorrow. The weather info line isn't saying right now, but it would be kinda ridiculous for us to have to go in. I bet no one will be in, even if things are "officially" open. Well, I'll bring my knitting, 'cause I'm low on work projects at the moment.

In other work-related news, I had been thinking that Harvard gives two weeks of severance pay for each year worked, but, in fact, they only give ONE! They're so damn cheap, I can't believe it. I mean, they've got more money than they know what to do with, and they can't even give a good severance package. Well, a month of severance is nice, but two would be much better! Of course, that's assuming I can manage to get laid off in the first place, and at a time that "works" without me having to find something to fill the gap before Guatemala. Anytime after July 1 would be fine, before that would mean using savings for bills, and I'd rather keep it in savings!

Well, I should just be glad I have savings, so this is a happy problem, in the grand scheme of things. And if I get laid off at all, any severance is nice, as opposed to if I have to quit and not get severance. I wonder how unemployment works if I quit, too? Hmm.
