In between orders, the conversation at Blue Check on Thursday afternoon centered on the blizzard bearing down on the state.
"I'm excited," said Michelle Blaise, an employee of the Woodbridge business. "I like being stuck at home with a nice fire going."
Blaise's family owns snowmobiles and she enjoys skiing, she said. A junior at Central Connecticut State University studying graphic design, Blaise lives up the street from Blue Check.
Another employee, an Amity High School student, said she is hoping for an early dismissal tomorrow. "Then it counts as a full day," she said.
As of 6 p.m. the district has not made a decision about whether to cancel, delay or have an early dismissal tomorrow. It all depends on the timing of the storm, and different forecast models are predicting different things — some say 4 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 8, others say 4 p.m.
One thing is for sure, said Amity High School Principal Charles Bitton, who stopped in to Blue Check for a quick bite to eat, "By Saturday morning we'll be digging out."
