It's Not Magic, It's Work!

Snow

I woke up this morning to snow. Not a lot of snow, but more snow that I've seen in my time living in "the south". I got into work okay, no problems to speak off, however everyone else couldn't get in. Some people have long commutes, some were coming from the snowier east, some probably had kids too look after. After an hour those of us at work were advised to go home before the second batch of snow arrived.

Relative to the snow I remember from my childhood, there wasn't really much to worry about. I remember having to wade through snow waist deep to get to school and we were only sent home twice in over a decade. It's true that southerners' aren't use to snow so they don't know what to do and with global warming we haven't even had "southern" snow much in the past two decade as well.

Juts over a decade ago I lived in Massachusetts, that winter was snowy, more than I'd ever seen before and contrary to this southern snow it didn't thaw and turn to mush within a few hours - Massachusetts snow seamed to last for weeks and weeks!

I'm now working from home, at least the VPN works through the snow...
