Well, I thought I was going to work today. And, in fact I did make the trip to the office. A trip that took me 55 minutes when it normally takes me 20-25 minutes. The roads were horrible. The drifting snow was awful. And it was still snowing. So, I did the right thing. I out a sign on the door and sent my secretary home and turned around and drove back home. It seemed smarter to work from home than risk being stranded 20 miles from home.
I was glad I got home without incident. Or at least any significant incident. I slid a couple of times and was sure I was heading straight for the ditch. But it was fine.
So, a day home again and I didn’t feel like cooking (I know, what’s new?). So Warren and I went into town to Applebee’s for a sandwich. And then to the grocery store so I could get some lunch meat for sandwiches in case the weather gets really bad this weekend. We are looking at significant snow again this weekend followed by extremely frigid temperatures (like we haven’t seen in 20-30 years). This is sounding like it could be setting up for a repeat of the Blizzard of ’78. That brings back some really unpleasant memories. I’m not really concerned about me but I get worried about my dad – he just won’t stay home. Those temps are enough to kill him.
Anyway, while it was at the grocery store I saw these new crackers. I’m a sucker for anything seasoned and salty and crunchy. So I grabbed a box. Of course I had to open them and check them out. Yummy! Now I wish I had grabbed a couple of boxes 😉
So, I’m thankful for new crackers. Silly, I know. But life is all about enjoying the small things.
