Never Fails

Ever receive an e-mail from someone about how they’ll be on vacation for the next few days and how everything should work fine in their absence, but in the slim chance of anything happening, here’s so-and-so’s number? Heh.  I got one of those last week and rolled my eyes.  Sure enough, something happened this morning and not only could I not get a hold of the person who is filling in, but their voicemail was full so I couldn’t even leave a brief message explaining the problem.  Ugh.  I was hoping to have everything resolved by the time I left work, so my colleagues on day shift didn’t have to worry about it.  No such luck.  I wonder what might happen before I go back in tonight?

I heard on the news the other day that it’s the coldest winter we’ve had in Seattle in decades.  I wasn’t really sure that was true, until I recalled just how many weeks we’ve endured the threat of snow, including this weekend.  In fact, it’s snowing right now.  Meanwhile, I have a friend stationed in Illinois who was bragging about how warm it’s been there.  Gr.  He said that after I asked “WTF?” when the Space Needle was struck by lightning last week.  It caused me to reminisce about the ice storms in Oklahoma.  Until I experienced those I don’t think I realized thunderstorms could occur when it was that cold outside.  Fortunately, I haven’t had to chisel inches of ice off my car since moving back to Seattle.  I hope it warms up soon.  I’d like to see my kitties again.  They’ve been sleeping on the heat vent in the living room for weeks because of this lingering winter.
