Snow Day

Snow. Snow. Go Away.

Today is another snow (play) day for many school children.

School buses did not make it out of the garage due to the extreme weather conditions, with no reprieve until tomorrow.

Driving or walking in snowy conditions is something you get used to here. A few centimeters is nothing to be concerned about. What is concerning is having to deal with ice pellets and freezing rain, then rain, as temperatures plunge and then rise again. Winter has been a roller-coaster of temperature fluctuations, and, again, we are used to that, but all modes of transport (including walking) become treacherous as ice forms on roads and walkways.

I count myself fortunate to be in a position to choose to stay home on days like this. One of the joys of retirement. Others are not so lucky. Work demands that you put in an appearance, so you have to risk the elements, no matter what.

All I can say is …….please take extreme care wherever you are.  

This is one of the worst storms we have experienced this winter. Do not take chances.

My hope is that employers are conscious of their employees’ safety too and will, wherever possible, make allowances to ensure their safety.

Praying for travel mercies for you all,
