Work Stuff

No Work Because of … Ice?

So. This happened…


… and then I got a call from a number I didn’t recognize and when I listened to the voicemail, it was from my boss and she said, “Don’t worry about coming in to work today, the roads are just too bad.”

And I was like, “What?? That’s NEVER happened in the 25+ years I’ve been working,” and because that was so weird and I was a little dumbfounded, I called her back.

“Jill. Are you SURE you don’t want me to come in? I don’t live very far …?”

But no. She said to stay home.

I just hope patients don’t brave the roads and show up to a clinic that may, or may not, be open to see a doctor who is most likely not there to see them.

It should be an interesting day tomorrow fielding calls and rescheduling people.

But I’ll be honest, I’m glad they told me to stay home. I’m not usually a scaredy cat to drive when there’s bad weather, but when it’s nothing but chunky ice like you see in the above picture and it’s sticking and about an inch thick?


I’m more relived that the boys aren’t going to school/class today. Because the thought of THEM out there driving in this mess gives me gray hairs. It’s bad enough that Kevin went into work, but he went in so early this morning, it was actually BEFORE most of the ice was dumped on us so I know he made it to work safely … (Now to get him home safely).

So. No work day. I have the entire day laid out in front of me and I don’t even know where to start. Do I read? Blog? Vlog? Clean house?

(HAHAHAHHAHA on that last one.)

I think I’ll just sit here, sip my coffee and munch on my dry Eggo and simply enjoy the fact that it’s going on 9:00 o’clock on a week day morning and I’m snug-as-a-bug at home in my long johns and hoodie.



I had my doubts on whether calling off school/work was a good idea, but the roads are pretty chunky/crunchy with some heavy-duty ice, so it was the right call. However. Getting to school/work today will be a challenge.
