My Day Off

We had a steady snowfall all day yesterday.  I good day to work from home.  The snow was piling up, and the roads were very slick. I had to set the trash cans by the road, but decided to wait until the snow had stopped and I could plow the driveway out.

I awoke at 4:00 AM.  I grabbed the phone to see what the weather was like.  The snow had nearly ended, but it was cold!  It was 2 degF and expected to get even colder.  Ouch - and I had the day off!

Grumble, grumble.  The trash truck will arrive before 9:00 AM.  Do I wait until 7:00 and go out when its even colder, or shovel out now?  I guess I'll go out now.  On with the cold weather gear.  And it is my day off!

I have to shovel off the porch first, then shovel out the trash cans and recycling bins.

Luckily the snow is light.  It was windy and the snow was blowing about and in my face.  Stinging and freezing me to the core.  And it was my day off!

I used the snow blower to clear all the snow.  It took about 90 minutes.  I was very cold.  The sun would not be up for another 2 hours.  Arghh!  And it was my day off.

I set the cans by the road, and then went indoors.  It was warm inside and very toasty!  I decided to go back to bed . . .

. . . and why not?  Well, it is my day off!
