Was out walking the dogs when the sky began rumbling as if a herd of elephants were scurrying across the clouds. It was already sprinkling when I headed out the door but weight of the elephants must have shook the moisture loose for it started to pour. Both dogs are soaked – I was wearing a raincoat so while it is drenched, I am, for the most part, dry.
The rain is supposed to turn to ice and snow later this evening while I am at work. This means, of course, that I have to leave the dogs out of their kennel because I might have to do a double at work and refuse to have them locked up that long in such a small space. If the weather turns bad, the dispatcher who lives in Washington might not be able to make it in which means I would have to stay unless the other evening dispatcher wants to.
I also will have to worry about driving home at 11pm if she does make it in. Luckily there isn’t a lot of other traffic out that time of night to worry about smacking into on the ice but it still worries me. I hate driving in inclement weather – always have.
Tomorrow is supposed to be bad as well. I work with a different coworker who also lives here in NL so maybe I will see if I can catch a ride with her as she has a jeep. My little car slips and slides around so much – though hopefully the sanders will be out but my bet is they will want to wait till the snow is done before coming out to clean off the streets.
