Well, normally when we have a snowstorm, I have to suck it up, put on my big boy stockings, and get myself to work. Today, however, in a spurt of common sense, offices for the provincial government were closed. Emergency services were still covered, but that would probably not include me.
I haven't been beyond looking out my front door today. I can say it looks pretty bad out there. I am not sure if it is worse than it was in the Winter of 2004 when we had White Juan. But this evening, roads remain closed or are deemed to be so dangerous that they may as well be closed to traffic. I figure when the buses are called off the road, when the snowplows are called off the road, then it's bad out there, and I have no business being out there.
It has been a quiet day. I did some laundry. I transcribed more of last month's Courtney Amirault interview which is in the home stretch. And I rested. Meanwhile, Patricia did the dishes and threw some veggies and a lump of corned beef into the crock pot, resulting in a delicious corned beef and cabbage dinner. I drenched my dinner with French's prepared mustard, using so much that my lips pursed up and nearly collapsed in on themselves like some kind of black hole. That's when I know that I have used nearly enough mustard on a food item.
This evening we watched "Dragon's Den". The five dragons were in a good mood tonight, so every contestant was made a deal that was accepted. It is now nearly 9:30. I am down in my recroom. Newbie is right next to me on the arm of the chair I'm in. And I should fill up my drinking bottle because I had a lot of sodium with my dinner this evening.
The big question is: Will work be cancelled tomorrow as well? I guess it depends on how much progress the road-clearing folks make this evening, and whether the weather improves enough over night for that progress to remain in place. If it is like this tomorrow morning, then we may get at least the morning off. But I am not a betting Bevboy, so I don't want to put any money on this.
At least I had an unexpected day off.
Got lots of feedback on yesterday's blog post regarding radio personalities. I shared the link with Andrew Douglas, editor of Frank Magazine. I am sure that their offices were closed today, so I doubt if he has seen it. He is a busy guy, so I doubt if he will even acknowledge my response, but I will let you know what he says, if anything.
I guess I should turn on Netflix for a little while. Haven't had the tv on down here very much today. Time to rectify that.
See you tomorrow.
