What a day it was!
It started off with a two hour work delay due to freezing temperatures. Which is one thing I’m not complaining about, I wish work was on a permanent two hour delay
Then as I’m trying to get ready for work it became apparent really quick that the pipes to our bathroom were frozen. I tell ya us Albuquerqueans are not prepared used to this cold weather.
After almost slipping on a patch of ice trying to get in to my car I was finally headed off to work.
I swear my hands (even though I had gloves on) almost froze to the darn steering wheel.
Once at work things got even worse.
New Mexico under went a State of Emergency. The gas company was slowly having to shut of gas to the entire state!
This is where the headache started. The phone was ringing off the hook with residents asking if they were gonna be loosing gas. Unfortunately I didn’t have an answer for them. I don’t work for the gas company people.
It’s amazing the difference in actions between a home owner and an apartment renter.
Apartment renter: thinks that the office is responsible for EVERYTHING. That living in an apartment excuses them from any type of Statewide shutdown.
Home owner (me): Hears about the chance of a gas shut off and starts thinking about where my electric heater is and ready to pile on the blankets, socks, and sweats.
See where my frustration comes from?
Luckily my area of town (The Westside) didn’t have to experience a gas shut off. Shew!
After a day of stress and a pounding headache I knew there was only one thing to do…eat chocolate!
Everything in the world is suddenly right. The headache started to subside and I was now able to enjoy this New Mexico Arctic Blast.
