Snow and a snowday

It appears that I will be working from home on Tuesday, which is today. It is going to snow all day. I can't complain.

I don't enjoy driving in a snowstorm. Many drivers around me aren't decent winter drivers. I would rather stay home than spend two hours trying to fight my way to get to work.

Monday was an odd day, but things worked out. The uncertainty of whether the other co-op student was finally answered. I managed to train both of them. However, only one of them got a laptop. The other one will get a laptop later on today.

I showed them how to connect to a meeting remotely. It was my contingency plan in case the pending snowstorm would prevent us from meeting, which looks like it will be the case.

These students are great. I have missed working with co-op students who are responsive. So far, so good.


  1. Happy to hear you are working warm and safe from home, CB. Not much gets accomplished if you have to fight two or three hours of bad roads and drivers to get to work...takes a bit to settle down and in. Then just when you're getting in to the swing of things, you start thinking about that horrible drive home! Been there...done that...no fun. Stay safe and enjoy working with your students.

    Hugs and blessings...Cat

  2. I agree, Cat. It is such a waste of time to commute when both the weather and nervous drivers can cause more harm than good. One time, I ventured going to work during a snowstorm. I had spent a grand total of four hours commuting. I have learned from that mistake!

    So far, working with the students has been great. I am hoping that the trend continues. They are good people.

    1. Thanks, Natali! Luckily, a fair amount of the snowfall has melted, so all is well. =)
