My wife asked last night if I was bringing home my work computer in case of inclement weather. I didn’t, because I knew from the forecast that the likelihood of snow was very low, and I didn’t want to have to haul it back in the morning.
Remember when one of the best things that could happen during the winter months was a snow day?
Remember waking up to the sight of white everywhere outside and the sound of school closure listings coming from the radio? The name of my school never seemed so beautiful as it did when it was coming out of that radio speaker.
Being Texas, it didn’t happen often, which made it glorious when it did.
Now, if there is a genuine weather warning, my manager sends an email telling everyone to plan on working from home. It’s the double edged sword of technology.
