Let it Snow

Roads pretty bad on the way in this morning.  a 20 mile drive, I get to the work and quelle surprise, I am the only one here.  Already had two folk phoning me saying they are stuck.  Add to the fact that 13 people are already isolating due to a positive covid case in the office, leaving only four of us.  This means that I could potentially be in the office myself today.  Phoned my own boss who said "well I am glad you got there safely".  No, you're glad I got here, safely doesn't come into it.  

 

I am giving it until 10.  If there isn't any change in this snow I am heading home.

I remember years ago the large company I worked for procrastinated about whether to close the office or not. By the time they decided to do so the buses has stopped running. People had to walk home or make other arrangements which wasn't easy. This was during that November 2012 dump I seem to recall.

 

I had been working in England and when I came home I was able to WFH for a week. 

 

After that WFH became much more prevalent and towards the end of my career I did it frequently.

 

Of course, now all my ex colleagues have been WFH since March and a huge office in Edinburgh Park is pretty much empty.

Plenty of snow up in the hills, but here in the town only an inch or so, it's a mixture of snow/sleet/rain and the roads are just slushy now.

In fairness the council have been out all morning with the big snowplough gritter, tractors gritting and the small pavement gritters.

Arse is now parked on the couch, coffee and a roll and sausage in my belly, laptop fired up to check periodically for emails. 

 

To add to my happiness, the missus had a day to herself planned while the wee one is at the childminder. Not tonight Josephine. 

 

:pleasing:
