Today is day 3 of the "weather event" that hit the South. Today, news reports have turned critical of the response of the City of Atlanta and local cities. Let everyone know that the City of Atlanta reportedly owns 8 snow removal trucks. Yes, just 8! Then, mysteriously on Monday, the number jumped to 11! Imagine what a positive impact the additional 3 trucks had on the mess outside!
Again, I made it to work, this time 2 hours sooner than yesterday. My ride time was a mere 1.5 hours. Normal travel time with zero traffic would turn out to be about 15 minutes. Mother Nature dropped our temps into the teens last night and the roads were expectantly much worse for it.
As I approached my place of employment which is in a very lovely office complex, the street into the complex was blocked by a long string of horses of the construction type.
I said to Fred, just drop me off and I'll walk in.
But you will fall....nah...I'll be OK.
Away he pulls and not 3 minutes later, I am laying on my big butt with my feet up in the air. I always hate it when he's right.
I managed to pick myself up and begin the very slow, tedious walk, creeping 1 foot at a time. Along come a car from the parking lot and attempts to pass me by. Seconds later, he turned around and offered to drive me to the front door. Now mind you, this is only 200 feet from where I was.
I accepted the offer from the very young, nicely dressed young man. As he delivers me to the front door, he said "Don't let this nice gesture ruin my reputation. I am an attorney!" As I laughed, I thanked him for the kind gesture and told him his mother would be proud!
Tomorrow is yet another day. Tonight the temps will be in single digits.
Where the hell is Spring?
