Snow Day, Maybe?

March 24, 2009

I’ve lived in South Dakota for the majority of my life and I still can’t gauge when the weather is safe. And now that I’m an adult this is problematic. When I was in school I never had to decide, “Is it safe to go to class today?” No, someone told me.

It’s days like these that I wish I worked in government because even in our little state the mayor decides if government workers can stay home because of the bad weather. Days like this also make me wish I worked somewhere that paid us for snow days.

Plus, now that my circumstances have changed at work and I’m not fully trained I don’t have the same desire I would otherwise have had. I’m not thinking, “I have to get to work to finish (insert fun project here).”

The Sherrif’s department is advising no travel. Does that mean I get to stay home? I bet my supervisor made it to work. He’s amazing like that. But I don’t think he drives a Chevy Cavalier either.

So, I’m hoping the weather gets worse. I mean, maybe it’s bad enough for me to take a snow day already — but I don’t know. The wind is crazy outside but it is’t snowing anymore. The roads don’t look safe, but by 1 p.m. they might be. Dang it!

Well to top it all off I’m not at home — I’m at my mom and dad’s because I wanted to be able to use the Internet if I got stuck. That means I am no where near my offie right now. If I were at my apartment I could maybe walk to work. However I don’t know if I could walk home at 9:30 p.m.

Anyway, how’s everyone out there doing? Did you guys make it work or are you playing it safe and staying home?
