It snowed yesterday morning. The news was calling it The St. Patrick’s Day Snowstorm. The schools all closed. The news was on full-time snowstorm coverage. I was scheduled to start work at 10am. I stepped outside to see the snowy wasteland.
It was nothing.
There was snow on the lawn, and it was piled high on the cars, but the streets were really clear. Even my side street was only minimally covered. My drive to work was all wet pavement. No snow.
But here was the problem: the scary reports caused employees to call out, but the clear streets and canceled activities made us busier than usual – with appointments and with phone calls. It was pretty hectic. Because it was so busy, I didn’t take a lunch break. Instead, I ate Kit Kats. I had stopped for coffee on the way in to work, so that’s what I had to drink. It was a good combination, and I had plenty of energy for the day.
