Hear the snow crunch

Panic! The weather maven says we will get one to two inches of snow today. So far they have avoided complete SnowTeamScareTeam coverage: “so far” being the operative phrase. It is certainly cold enough. We shall see. I ain’t mad about getting snow. It is December and a little white stuff will offset the Christmas lights perfectly. Should we get a bunch of snow, my old sled is leaning on the porch as a Christmas decoration. I’ll have to take off the wreath tied to it and wax up the runners, but it is ready. All I’ll need is a decent hill and a body that is 25 35 40 years younger. Both are hard to find around here.

My boss sent a flurry of emails starting at 4:45 PM yesterday, all requiring a response. I know I ostensively work until 5, but WTH, it is a Friday. I know, I know, most of the working world doesn’t work from home and does not have that kind of flexibility to their schedule. I was still at it at 5:30. This was like getting called into a meeting 15 minutes before the end of the day to discuss stuff that could just as well been addressed Monday morning. Oh well, it is not like I had a hot date, or any plans at all. The wife was gone, so I just read until time to cook supper anyway.

I don’t think we have any plans for the weekend. The social director does not usually check in with me though until it is time to go, so it is quite possible I am just out of the loop.

A quick glance out the window shows — let me check — darkness. I do not see any snow yet. The old sled is safe for now.

Have a great Saturday.

No snow just chilly here in southern South Carolina, upstate got some. Atlanta is in it's usually first snow of the year drivers challenge. We had a lot of rain and the forecast if for a freeze early in the morning. It is a good thing that will be on Sunday or those poor people on the highway to downtown Chucktown on monday morning would be stuck for hours. It is amazing all those people from NJ and Ohio who moved down here still can't drive.
