Insert Epic Music Here

Faust WTF
This morning was a good morning to go play Lord of the Rings. Unfortunately, it only occured to me to do this after I successfully and safely made it to work. Which is a shame. I even had Becki with me! We could have sung the epic music together as we set off on our epic quest to get a taxi/get a bus/get a taxi/catch the bus oh wait that's not the right one/get a taxi/what do you MEAN they're taking the busses off the road!?

It was very epic, oh yes.

I swear, I called every cab company in town at some point this morning. Diamond Cab was constantly busy, and the one time I got through we were put on hold. All the others that I tried just weren't answering. I got lucky on a retry to Vet's, and we managed to have one come get us over by the Scotiabank. And we even got to work a bit EARLY! Woo us! OMFG! Sadly, I'm one of few people in the department that managed to brave the nasty wintery chaos. It's going to be a crazy day in here. I hope the snow lets up, and the busses get back on the roads. (I'd at least like to get home for cheap, if I can help it.)

My poor boss was trying to get a cab for her father-in-law to get him in to a doctor's appointment... Simonds told her they had a FIVE HOUR WAIT.

Also, THIS WILL BE THE DEATH OF THE HOBBITS

FIVE HOUR WAIT?! D:

I called Vet's and got a 20 minute wait. I think I was lucky, though. Time of day, condition of roads, proximity to the Timmy's where they all hang out...

I hope your day goes well also. Where do you work and what part of the planet to you hang your coat?

Denver Water does not have snow days. Period. If you're snowed in and can't get to work, any supervisor with a 4-wheel drive vehicle goes to your place to collect you. You have to find you own way back home, though, once your shift ends. ::shakes head:: Damn I'm glad I no longer work for them and that I now live in Buffalo.

I'm in Saint John, New Brunswick. That's on the east coast of Canada, just a weeeeee bit aways a way from Maine. As for where I work? Call center. Those calls, they need to be answered, come snow or sleet or whatever the heck.

My workplace very much appreciates it if you show up for work, no matter how bunk the weather is. You can often get 'em to pay for cab fare, if the busses have stopped and things are grim enough. But on days that are this bad, there's no fault if you don't show up. Of course, it's hard to tell when it's bad enough for them to throw up their arms and declare it bad enough, so I hedged my bets and showed up anyway.

Oddly enough, our company has a small processing center in Buffalo....
