2018: Page 40

Some thoughts, lessons, and/or reflections from the day:

  • By the time I went to bed last night, nearly all the area schools had made the call to cancel today so I went to sleep without setting the alarm.
  • I still woke up at my usual early weekday time but was tired enough that I went back to sleep.
  • It didn’t seem that bad outside when I got up, but the snow kept coming all day and would have made transportation to and from school treacherous at either end of the day.
  • Being responsible often means you have to make the difficult decisions that will likely be unpopular with some people regardless of what you decide.
  • They say hindsight is 20/20, but leaders can’t base decisions on hindsight . . . they must consider as much information as possible to make an informed decision to the best of their ability.
  • With the snow day it kind of felt like a Saturday but that will eventually catch up with me once I start dealing with the snow at work.
  • I started the morning by writing yesterday’s page and then did some research on some vacation options for later in the year.
  • My neighbors thought I wasn’t home and stopped by to clear my driveway.  It is good to have neighbors who look out for each other.
  • By late afternoon, the snow had filled back in so I fired up my snowblower for round two on my driveway.  
  • Working in the beauty of the great outdoors made me hungry so I started up the pellet grill to cook some steaks for dinner.  It can always be grilling season. 🙂
  • It sounds like there will probably be a pause in the snow sometime tomorrow so I’ll try to get some rest before then so I can clear the walks at work in preparation for Sunday.
  • Today’s photo is one I took yesterday before this current round of snow began.  The day of rest was nice today, but that meant I didn’t get out to take new photos. 🙂

    • It seems like there are always a few places that decide to go against the trend. 🙂 When I was in elementary school it got to where we wouldn’t even listen for school closings . . . everyone else in the area could have a delay or be closed but not us. 🙂
