The parking garage across the street charged approximately $25 for the day. If you worked past 8:00 PM, you could expense your parking. (Basically, one of your clients would be paying for it.) We had some warmish weather the week before and some girls on the floor had been wearing spring suits and open toe shoes.
I don't remember the exact time I left work that night. There were plenty of snowy evenings when I waited until 1:00 AM to drive home. I had work to do and there was usually no one on the roads at that time except for the plows. You had to be careful though because the garage, which was underground, could close due to the storm and you wouldn't be able to get your car out. I know I didn't stick around for too long that night.
I do remember shoveling out and driving to work on April 1st. I didn't see any spring suits or open toe shoes. I did see about two feet of snow.
Fourteen years later and Mother Nature is attempting to fool us again. So on this snowy evening, the last day of March, I ponder life.
- I'm old.
- I'm glad I don't work in public accounting anymore.
- We may never see 80 degrees here again.
Em followed me upstairs tonight when I arrived home from work. When she saw me in my pajamas, she said that she wanted to put her jammies on early. I asked Rich to help her while I carried a basket of laundry downstairs. I guess Em is rebelling against this weather.
This is what I found when I emerged from the laundry room.
Those poses were all her own!
