... it's just not worth the trouble of clawing your way out of the crypt.

I forgot to set my alarm clock last night. So I woke up at 5:07 instead of 4:15. I usually leave about 5:00 give or take a few. Yup. I started off way behind schedule. Oh, but today was trash day and so I had to get the trash out to the curb. And it's recycling week so I had to get the recycling bin out to the curb.
Better yet, we had snow last night - wet, heavy snow which formed a nice, hard crust on top. Just a couple of inches, but I had to clean off the car. Delays, delays, delays. And the roads were icy so slowing down was in order.
All told, I managed to get to work a couple of minutes before 6:00 instead of around 5:30 as usual. Fortunately, I'm supposed to be there at 6:00. I just didn't have the time for my usual morning email to my sweetie. At least, not before punching in, though I did drop her a quick note after punching in. Who's to know? After all, as I found out when I drove into an unusually empty parking lot, UNH had delayed opening today.
Mind you, I still needed to be there since my deliveries came on their own schedule, not UNH's. So it all worked out in the end.

As and endnote, I begin to sympathize with the Republican view that not everyone needs to go to college. Some people just don't belong there. I say this after watching two students walk up to our door, look at the sign that said we would not be open until 9:30 and then try to go in anyway - at 7:00. THEY LOOKED AT THE SIGN! AND THEN IGNORED IT! Some folks need to start over at a lower level.

I am glad you got in safely, anyway! Our street wasn't even fully plowed around 9ish...
