....it's still quite dark, but you can see the snow on the artificial turf.
TLE and I had different shifts Thursday as I wrote previously. She worked the 6:30 am to 11:30 am half day shift and I worked the 12 pm to 5 pm shift. If I am going to work a 1/2 day I, along with most, prefer to work the first half, otherwise you are just sitting around waiting for time to go to work.....it kind of kills the day.
It had stopped raining about 8 am, but about 30 minutes before I began getting dressed (10:30 am) it began to snow, and it was snowing as I walked down the long hill to the concrete bunker in my winter jacket, gloves, watch cap and shorts. TLE passed me on her way home in the VW. My 5 hour shift went quickly, and so did the picking. I averaged close to 250 picks per quarter, and ended up around 500 for the 5 hour session.....not too bad.
By the time I exited the bunker it was still snowing lightly, but it was oh so cold. I was wishing I had asked TLE to pick me up from work. Nonetheless, I made it home unscathed, and changed into my pajamas and slippers. Within minutes my legs were once again warm.
As is our habit, we were in bed by 8 pm getting our rest before the beginning of our real work week (Friday to Monday).
I forgot to mention that just after I got dressed I remembered I had not dumped the black tank, and I had meant to do that earlier before it began snowing. I managed to get it dumped and flushed in about 15 minutes, and still had a few minutes to spare before I had to walk to work. Not fun doing the deed in the snow, however.
Thanks for stopping by!
