Second Snow – First Official Snow Day

First snow day of the school year. Cherry Creek schools are closed. I only expected a delay. My alarm was set for 5:45 this morning to check for delays or cancellations, but my phone woke me up at 5:00 when a text came through that Redstone College is on a 2-hour delay. Must remove this alert – Jason is done with that school!

Another benefit to companies utilizing remote workers is that we can always make it to work on time no matter what the weather. Wouldn’t it be great if we got “snow pay”? Time and a half for working on days when the weather is bad enough to close schools! Technically, I could call a snow delay since I have to get up and shovel a path on the deck and a patch of lawn for the dogs (before my first cup of coffee, mind you)! OK, so more believable would be the HOA’s requirement that we shovel the sidewalk in front of our homes. I think that would be a great form of exercise for the girls, though. They need a boredom buster on snow days!

Greg’s in Sacramento right now missing all this fun! His flight is due this afternoon, and the runways will be fine by then. Right now, there are only 15-minute delays or less at DIA.

Josh is off work at 7 a.m. and is carpooling with someone with a 4×4. Whew! Jason, however, is in need of new tires as it is on his Tiburon (not the greatest in snow, but at least a front-wheel drive). He did get a little stuck at the corner when he left, but he’s a pretty smart cookie and made it work.

See the photo above with the paw prints? I had shoveled that just 20 minutes before that was taken. At that point, they were calling for up to 3 more inches by noon. I’m glad it’s my half day at work today. Baking sounds like a wonderful idea!

I don't believe humans truly have a purpose. Our goal is to survive until we expire. Period. Joy is pleasurable and worrying is not. Balance in life is crucial; but if the scales must tip, may they tip on the side of joy. I’m just another human trying to survive. I blog because I can and because I enjoy it, not because it serves any purpose.
