It’s Day 2 of Snowmageddon.
No, I’m not being dramatic – it’s a FACT. Mother Nature is blessing us with a Winter Wonderland, but I’m still left wondering what’s so fantastic about snow, cold weather, whiteouts and ridiculous drivers.
By the end of day yesterday, we had received a whopping 80 cm or approximately 31 inches of snow.
Today, we are expecting another 50 cm or an additional 19 inches of snow. The end of the world is coming.
Yesterday, I donned my toque (remember last year's lesson on Canadian clothing), mittens and boots and ventured forth to work. Only to be told, we were closing early.
Today, I ventured forth again. Upon arriving to work, I find there were less people there today than there were yesterday and most of the ones that didn’t show up actually live within the city. Once again, we were told we were closing early.
My boss was surprised to see that I made it. I bluntly told him I was saving my snow days for a time I could actually enjoy them…in July. He laughed. He obviously doesn’t get my sense of humor. We’ll see who gets the last laugh in July (when I call in sick). Ha!
