Snow Day (Almost)

SnowDay

I woke up to this morning to a text containing the magical words

“have you seen it snowing”

Now first of I’m not excited by the snow itself, it’s almost an impossibility that I will be out making snowmen, snow angels and I haven’t been tobogganing since I was a very young boy.

 

 

 

 

BUT

With it, Snow does bring the most awesome of things, something that we all secretly or let’s be honest not so secretly crave, the Snow Day.

 

 

For me it’s a relatively new thing, when I was a kid as far as I remember, we didn’t get snow as often and the school wasn’t likely to close its gates when the first snowflake hit the gym roof. And for the most part of my adult life I have worked in retail, where you not making it into your store is treated as a life and death situation, so come flood, snow or alien invasion your store better open on time.

For those of us working in an office the threat of the “world” ending based on you not making it in is much reduced and with the internet and the ability for many people to work from home, the disruption to work is even more muted.

Whilst this ability to continue to work somewhat diminishes the enjoyment of the unplanned and unexpected day off, it does still come with the bonus of working in comfort, in the warm and with the chance to take the “occasional” TV break when work becomes a bit too much.

Today did not turn out to be a snow day, for a brief 10 minutes as snowflakes the size of my first where falling rather quickly passed my window it looked like it might be, but it passed as quickly as it started leaving only a centre meter or so of snow.

This brief and unexpected snow shower however causes the worst type of snow day, whilst it’s not enough to change your plans and get a bonus day off; it is enough to thoroughly Fubar the British transport network.

Based on the 2 ½ hours I had to wait for train this morning, coupled with the copious reports of delayed trains, motorway pileups and general chaos you would have thought that it was like this outside.

 

 

Not this.
