Today like most of the local area ended up with a Snow Day. I didn’t – it was clear enough outside my house to risk driving to work – if it had been really bad outside I would have spoken to my Manager and see if there was anything that I could do from home.
On the other hand, My 15yo Cousin has been given today off by her school because it’s closed – she goes to the same Upper School that I went to – I only remember one bad snow fall like what we are having at the moment and even then the school didn’t close – I walked home in about 4 inches of snow in my normal school shoes – my feet were rather cold by the time I got home that day.
My 9yo cousin on the other hand has had to go into school – I have the feeling he’s really not impressed – then again he might not actually know as I think my 15yo cousin walks herself to school and the 9yo and my Aunt leave before she does.
Anyway so I got to work at 5 past 9 – yep I was late – I had misjudged how long it would take me to get to work in snow and at 15-20mph instead of 30mph. I got here and it was just me and Aunty Ali to start with – my Manager arrived at about 10 ish but it’s quiet – I guess lots of people are affected – I looked up Northamptonshire school closures as that’s the next county over from us and like 80% of schools are closed – maybe even more than that – I’m not sure if we are due more snow but it’s possible the Carol Service tonight could be cancelled.
