No Snow Day for the Working Man



















For all you know this is an actual shot of me en route to my daily 9-5, losing all hope and consumed by the weather all around me. I learned very quickly this morning that even if a tornado/earthquake hits the area or hell freezes over like today...it's still in my best interest to bundle up and find whatever alternative route possible to punch in on time.

I get a call from my boss early in the a.m., which led to the belief that the office might just be closed on this particular day. I mean, when the government recommends to stay home then there's a chance right? I don't think so. Instead I get the..."hey glad you're up, there's a spare key behind the dumpster in the parking lot if you can open up the building. Everyone else seems to be running late."...Right...

So there I stood gazing out the window as if I were about to embark on a dog sledding journey through Alaska with my coffee in one hand and Lean Cuisine in the other (those things never do the trick by the way). Today, however was a great day not to be a car owner...can't even imagine the struggles others were dealing with. On the other hand, no one else in the greater Boston area was aimlessly digging around in the snow-filled parking lot for a spare key to get into work...Has winter past yet? Happy Monday.
