Usually I work 5 days a week, but it’s a little bit difficult to keep up that schedule when all roads that I could take to work are barricaded because of bad weather. If you drive on those closed roads you have no insurance coverage and if caught will receive a $110 fine and three demerit points on your driving record. So, if you get in an accident you’re paying for car repairs out of your own pocket. We were snowed in all last weekend and on Monday. I got a full day of work in on Tuesday, and then I have been home again ever since. It hasn’t really been snowing much this week, but the winds have been so bad and the snowbanks so high that snow is constantly blowing across the highway, creating pretty much permanent whiteout conditions. It was so bad the day before yesterday that Dufferin County, just south of where we live, declared a state of emergency!! I’ve never seen that happen before.
My son was supposed to take the last of his semester one exams on Monday, but the school buses have been cancelled every day this week, so now exams are scheduled for this coming Monday. However, they are calling for another snowstorm this weekend as well as one on Tuesday or Wednesday, so who knows. I sure hope they don’t get cancelled again because all of the kids are getting really frustrated.
Anyway, it’s just after 7am here, and the roads are still closed this morning. However, the winds have died down, so now I am sitting here waiting and checking the internet over and over to see if anything opens up. If you don’t see many comments from me today, it will mean that I ended up having to go to work to deal with the mountain of paperwork that I’m sure is building up on my desk there.
On to the mystery photo! I think I have a really good one for you this week, but you guys are getting so smart that it may not be as hard as I think. Let’s see what you’ve got. Ok, ready, set, go….
