Supposed to get 3 -4 inches last nite... barely a flake. Supposed to start snowing here at three o'clock... it's not here YET, and it's SIX o'clock. Stupid newsies and weathermen have turned a foot of snow into "The Storm of the Century!" or some such asinine thing. My boss says work from home if you can. OK - I can and I probably will.
The Luvly Laura had her first cataract surgery scheduled for one o'clock this afternoon. The clinic called at ten this morning, after I'd already taken a sick day, and canceled. Why? Because, "You might not be able to get in here tomorrow because of"The Storm of the Century!""
For Pete's sake, folks, this storm has been predicted for five days! You had PLENTY of time to call me yesterday! (Well, we hoped it wouldn't come.) REALLY?!? We live in MICHIGAN... the Midwest... a veritable hotbed of snowstorms! They don't "not come!" And we've been driving in snow since Hector was a pup (52 years for me)!
Meanwhile, the Luvly Laura gets to go another two weeks without her contacts. I get to play calendar games (they rescheduled for Monday the 14th) so I can get another day off. And it's STILL WINTER! What if we get another "Storm of the Century?!?"
Stupid storm! Stupid weatherman. Stupid doctor.
It's a CONSPIRACY, I tells ya... a freakin' CONSPIRACY!
