Snow for You and Snow for Me....
I don't know about you, but I was ecstatic to work from home today. The snow in my back yard was almost as tall as me. Let's just say, you couldn't spot the top of my head. Anyways, wow what fun for us adults to chill at home. It felt like a free hall pass, unexpected and liberating. Yeah, well, my car is buried, the driveway is buried and if this isn't the case for you, you're just too damn lucky!
So sitting in my home thinking about all the things I needed to do today, but couldn't, brought me a little comfort. At least, I'm not neglecting my duties. I've got a real excuse. I'm snowed in, and we're digging ourselves out. If you live in Chicago, you heard about Lake Shore Drive (LSD), and if you watched the press conferences on various news channels, you know that there was criticism as to why LSD wasn't shut down before the storm. LSD ended up with approximately 1,500 cars stuck on the road, last count I heard was 300 remained earlier this afternoon. I did pray for the stranded motorist, and I did what most parents/people would do, I called around to check on my friends and loved ones, knowing if something was wrong, I probably wouldn't be able to help. Still I just don't know what anyone can do against this type of weather, except for be on cue for the unexpected, and deliver help as best as you can. It's alarming! It is! If global warming issues haven't crossed your mind today, then where do you live?
Nevertheless, I feel like a snow bunny, playing hooky from work and enjoying the weather. Naughty, naughty, I know. It's the clean up that's been dragging me to the windows every five seconds to check for progress on the roads being cleared. Oh that's right, I'm working from home today. Yeah, I'm doing that and whole lot of other stuff, too. I really do need to get back to work, and the shopping I was going to do, cancelled, notta, nothing.
So that's what the snow did for me, what did it do for you? I hope got to sit at home, safe, warm and toasting marshmallows at least for an hour or two. We know the shocking reality that things should be clear by morning looms. It was fun while it lasted!
See you on the road.
