I’m Officially A Grumpy Old Man
Once, when I too was a little q, I used to love my snow days; longed for them, prayed for them, maybe even did a few snow dances in hope some pagan deity might have pity on me and induce a foot or more of snow that would shut down the world for a day or two.
Even as I got older, it was nice to get those snow days. Who wouldn’t want a day off? Hell I lived in an apartment, I didn’t have to shovel the snow.
But now, well let’s just say I’m fed up with the ‘snow’ days around here. So far they opened late of less than an inch. Closed before Christmas for a big storm that turned out to me nothing more than rain.
Work was open when it looked like this:
And during an ice storm. This is the view from my back door today:
Today, given the severe condition you see above, they closed the government – and daycare. In theory we’re supposed to get snow today – maybe 5 inches – maybe. It’s just amazing that they close the government on the presumption it will snow, but keep it open when there is ice and snow.
So why am I being such curmudgeon? I had the day off anyway so while the office gets a free day – those of us who had scheduled leave still have to use their day off. :-/
Ah well, at least me and ‘lil q can hang out some more.
