I love snow as much as the next snowboarding, Best Snow on Earth, Utah born and raised snow bunny, but come on!!! Where were all the snow plows this morning?
(*note: As I’ve mentioned before I work at a hospital. This hospital (like ssoooooo many others) has limited parking but we have a parking terrace a block north and ride a shuttle bus to the hospital campus. Because I’m a good employee I do this even though it’s a pain and technically could park in the parking lot if I so pleased.)
Back to this morning… lovely beautiful white fluffy snow :). On the roads :(. I was slipping and sliding all over the place this morning. I swear we have snowplows for this kind of thing. I got to the terrace only to find my spot occupied… along with every single spot surrounding it. Boo. I circle up all 6 levels of the parking terrace only to find car after car parked in stall after stall. Where do all you people park when the weather is nice???? I stopped counting double parked cars after the sixth one. Who do you think you are? I circled all the way back down the terrace and backtracked to the hospital to park in a perfectly snowy spot in the north 4o, trekked through the snow in my heals, entered the hospital at the opposite end from my office, punched in, and began the walk through the hospital feeling rather Mr. Scrooge-ish (that’s what I call a run-on sentence). All of the sudden something pierced through my grumpy state… children’s voices singing Christmas songs.
“Here come Santa Clause, here come Santa Clause, right down Santa Clause Lane…”
A phone picture was the best I could do, but aren’t they darling? I stopped with the small crowd of employees, volunteers and visitors to listen to the rest of their song and joined the the applause once they finished. They completely turned my day around… thank you children for spreading the spirit of Christmas to this Scrooge!
Now it’s time to listen to the Christmas playlist I made last year while I work. I haven’t had time to update the songs that don’t work anymore, but there are still plenty of fantastic Christmas tracks on there.
Merry Christmas, readers! And remember… be good because “Santa Clause is coming to town!”
