2:23 pm The office is empty except for Gail and me. About 20 minutes ago, we got word that everyone was being sent home because of the storm and messed up transportation conditions. Problem is, thought, there is NO light rail service downtown. My closest operating stop is 2 miles away. I tried to get information about buses, but RT's site isn't working. People called their family and friends, or just went out there hoping to catch a bus going in the right direction or walking until ....? Office mates buddied up with others going in the same direction. My Ruth (as opposed to my coworker Ruth), bless her, is going to try to come get me and Gail who takes the same line as I do. I hope she doesn't have any trouble. Our street is flooded from 21st up to her house. She is thinking she can get out heading south.
More bad news. Tonight was supposed to be her Mystery Hostess Party! How I have been looking forward to it. But with the street flooded, how can her guests get there or park if they do? I am afraid that she is going to have to reschedule.
Ruth will call when she leaves, she couldn't just run out the door right the minute I called. Meanwhile, I guess I will do a little work.
