The picture is not as bad as reality. The winterstorm started on New Year’s Eve spoiling revelry plans for many. Me and my friends had to cancel our plans ourselves as aside from the weather, some of us were already nursing a cold and I was recovering from a bout of bronchitis.
January 2nd is my first day back to work and many times I asked myself why I didn’t stay home and telecommute but after too much indulgence from the holidays I wanted to take my 6-block walk each way to and from the office from the Union Station. Besides staying home makes it too easy to reach for more food from the refrigerator.
The snow fell heavily even after I have cleaned my car in the morning. Leaving work early to avoid more snow, I found 3 inches thick on my car. Good thing the gentleman parked next to me offered to help me as he warmed up his car.
