There's nothing I love more than Creed Bratton being Creed Bratton. Coincidently, I'm going through the entire Rolling Stones discography at this very moment. Their early stuff sounds like second rate early Beatles.
Author's Response: Creed is pretty much the best. I was going to have him going around Scranton "hanging brain" but then that just brings about so many questions I don't want to answer. Thanks for reviewing. :)

So clever! Creed’s never liked the guy much - that’s why he doesn’t keep in touch. Ha!
Author's Response: Well of course Creed knows him. (I think you can make almost anything about Creed believable haha.) Glad you liked it. :)

This whole cllection of stories is wonderful! I love the way you gave us glimps into what these guys and girls would do on their snow day, but this bit of Creed is just priceless. I love that he is stealing the truck for a joy drive but making sure to actually use it for good too. Putting the weed as an apology takes the cake! Not a lot of people can write Creed well, but you did a perfect job!
Author's Response: I'm glad you liked it. :) I'm glad the Creed was good because usually I can manage his one-liners but I was worried about going farther than that with him. I'm glad it was believable.

Poor Meredith. Each character you've chosen, you've portrayed so well.
Author's Response: Why thank you. I have to say it was a bit of a challenge because some of the characters I chose I never really gave much thought so, so I'm glad it went over well.

Ha! How did you even think of that--genius, I tell you! I could absolutely see Kelly doing that. Great job.
Author's Response: Gad you enjoyed that. I was trying to think of exactly what Kelly would be doing and imagined her pining over Ryan, then I stopped and was like "Wait. No. This is Kelly here!" And the rest is history haha.

I thought you captured Angela very delicately here in this small moment, allowing herself a little happiness.
Author's Response: Thank you. I usually torture Angela in some way or another so I thought I'd do something a little different here.

Poor Michael, he can't stand the only person who idolizes him.
Author's Response: Pie is indeed delicious. And as for Michael... well, he's Michael. ;) Thanks for reviewing!

Nice job capturing Michael's personality. Adorable.
Author's Response: Thank you. :) I have to admit that finding the right balance for Michael out of the office was a little tough. Some part of him easily appeals to other people (why he's good at sales), but then there's that other part that's just... well, Michael. I think it's easier writing him when he's in the office and "in his element."

I really enjoyed this chapter, which I didn't expect to be totally honest with you since I've never been that interested in Katy. But I think you've hit the nail on the head in this one. Very realistic. Great job!
Author's Response: Thanks! :) I have to admit I've never really been that interested in her either, but then she just got into my head and was like, "Come on, you know you wanna write about me and my Ugg boots." And so I had to.

Hey, carbondalien! Just had the pleasure of reading three more chaps, which is an excellent way to start the work week. Really glad that Mother Nature inspired you to write this fic. Each chap is such fun to read in its own way.
Author's Response: Thank you. :) I'm glad it's a good way to start the work week. Hopefully there won't be any cases of the Mondays.

Really enjoying these one-shots! They're perfect in their sweetness and simplicity, and yet totally satisfying. Perhaps a bit like Lucky Charms marshmallows...? Anyway, looking forward to more! Good luck with the snow! (I live in MI; I can sympathize.)
Author's Response: Thank you. :) I'm happy you're enjoying these little slices of overly snowy life. (And the roads are finally free of ice and such so I can actually make it out of the house! Yay!)

Oh no, carbon! You forgot about Tim's catch phrase!!!
"Talk to me."
Oh, and Blaine (season 5) got him to say "Holla at ya boy" which was basically the highlight of my year.
But anyway, I do have a purpose for reviewing again (besides rambling about Project Runway). I can't wait for more of these! Why are there going to be ten?
Author's Response: Oh! I can't believe I forgot "Talk to me." That's one of my favorites! Oh, Tim Gunn, you are fantastic.
More will be around soon. There are going to be 10 because northeast PA got 10 inches of snow the day I first posted this, and it was driving me crazy. So I decided to go with 10 chapters/characters for the 10 inches of snow.

"She signs the release forms because she knows she never did anything terrible or embarrassing in front of the cameras (except for getting dumped, but she figures Jim comes off worse in that one)."
Sorry, Katy. It's hard to look better than Jim Halpert.
I can't wait for more of these! Especially if they're very Jammy. :D
Author's Response: Jim Halpert is kind of awesome. (At least that's what I'm guessing Pam might say.)
Thanks for reviewing. :)

For the record, Project Runway is amazing and Tim Gunn is hilariously old and gay. So, more power to ya, Pam.
Reading on. :D
Author's Response: I want Tim Gunn to live in my closet.
"Make it work." / "That's a lot of look." / "Don't bore Nina!"
But before I distract myself even further with thoughts of Tim Gunn, thanks for reviewing! :)

YAY Toby fic!!! I love Toby fic. :)
This is so sweet. I love that you haven't made Toby a total happy sap, but you have given him a degree of happiness with Sasha. She's really the only thing that we've ever seen make him happy (except for when he beat Michael at poker, I guess!).
Ok, question-- aren't the lyrics to the song, "Jack Frost nipping at your NOSE"? Or am I missing a joke or something?
Author's Response: Glad you liked it. :) I don't think Toby has it in him to be a happy sap, haha.
And the lyrics are indeed "nose" but I made the title with reference to the phrase "nipping at your heels" for when something is bothering you, etc. Snow is definitely bothering me right now.

“Chivalry was very much alive when I let you open the cereal box, but then I come to find out you don’t eat Lucky Charms like a lady."
That has got to be the best sentence I have read in a fanfic in the past three months at LEAST. Bravo! Love it! Loved this chapter, so funny and witty and cute!
Author's Response: Glad you liked it. :) I really enjoyed writing this, so I'm glad it's a fun read. (I also love marshmallows. I'm one of those people who picks out the marshmallows and leaves the cereal.)

Isn't the Storm Hoard checklist "bread, milk, toilet paper and Lucky Charms?" This was cute.
I miss them...
Author's Response: I miss them too. It's why I had to make them do something adorable. Thanks for reviewing. :)

That was really great! I am excited for the next chapters. P.S I grew up in Utica... I know how you feel!
Author's Response: Glad you liked it! :)
Whenever winter rolls around, I always wonder why I decided to go to school in Utica instead of Florida or somewhere sunny. I can't escape the snow - home or school it's there. Hmph.
