Wednesday we got hit with a nice snowstorm. We started at 10 and had to be back to the building at 6:30. Needless to say we had many stops brought back, some of which we could have delivered if we were allowed to stay out a while longer. Thursday, although many areas were still quite ugly, the going was better and we would have been able to put a nice dent in our leftover stops but we got a message to be back to the building by 6:30-6:45. Many of us begged to keep going so we could get cleaned up. The streets were mostly clear but they made us come in. Friday we start in a big hole when lo and behold we get this fine message at 3 o'clock. "No one is to come in until you get permission. We are going to clean up all the stops". You can imagine what the replies to that message were like. Luckily I only had to help one guy and snuck back to the building around 7. All but about 8 trucks out of 50 were still out. The supe and center manager were running around with their thumbs up their butts wondering why 5 guys were going over 12 hours and 2 over 13. It's good they provide a little comic relief during these stressful times. I think I heard this somewhere. You don't plan to fail, you fail to plan.
