Slippin' & Slidin' Toward 2011
The restaurant was busy for lunch, thanks to the kids being out of school and families suffering from cabin fever. Though there were few parking places available on the avenue, folks found spots nearby and were happy to find us open. We were just glad to be back to work and busy.
The sun was out most of the day which helped to melt some of the snow and more pavement was available when I walked home after my shift. A huge difference in just a few hours. The temps are to continue to rise over the next few days, so if these damned winds ever subside, the New Year may ring in on a happy note.
The car remains buried but I asked a friend/co-worker to try to find a snow shovel for me on his way home last evening, not that I hold much hope, but worth a shot. He may also help with the big dig, if I ask. I hate to ask, but...we'll see, Don't want to pay any more visits to the hospital, if you get my drift. (Did I really say 'drift'?)
I'm scheduled to work 8 days in a row with my next day off being Jan. 5th. We're all hoping that the restaurant remains busy though the weekend. We are almost totally booked for New Year's eve and New Year's day lunch with that evening filling up fast. There are a few reservations for lunch today and tomorrow, always good sign.
Coffee is finished, a light breakfast next. Then it's off to find out how much ice is under foot as I walk the 4 blocks to work. I have to take a different route for the moment. The path of least resistance is the one I'm on.
