It was almost as if my coworkers and I were unwitting participants in a grand psychological experiment, Modern Philosophers.
As if our Post Traumatic Snow Disorder wasn’t enough, the doctors wanted to see what would happen if they added a little cabin fever to the mix.
Why not totally cut off the subjects from the rest of the world by denying them sunlight, a view, and any idea of what was going on outside of the test area?
Let’s see what happens to the rats when the maze has no windows!
What in the world am I rambling on about now? This was what I discovered when I arrived at work this morning…
They had cleared the parking lot outside of the office by piling all of the snow up against the windows of the building!
Every window in the office was completely blocked by snow.
I guess the higher ups really didn’t want anyone staring out the window and daydreaming. But this is a little extreme, don’t you think?
That giant pile of snow on the awning above the door looks a little dangerous, too. I’m surprised they allowed us a clear path the to the door.
Must be a state regulation of something…
This was how it looked from inside the office. This poor plant is not going to be getting much sunlight today. Hopefully, it can survive on the glow of snow.
Someone walked by my desk and said that she hoped the windows were strong. Could you even imagine the chaos that would have ensued if the windows had shattered under the weight of the snow?
What about the other end of the parking lot? Glad you asked.
Look at how high those snow mountains are! Those are not Matchbox cars parked out there, Modern Philosophers!
I did suggest to Bethany that we have interdepartmental sledding races down those mountains, but she shot down the idea without giving it any thought.
Think of all the fun we could’ve had. It would’ve helped us all to better deal with out Post Traumatic Snow Disorder if we had turned the snow into something fun rather than something annoying, difficult to drive in, and painful to clear from the driveway.
At least the snow mountains will still be there tomorrow if she has a change of heart about the sled races.
I did hear a rumor that Sherpas were only charging $20 to lead an ascent of the snow mountains. That sounds like a really great deal…
I moved away from Maine about a year ago after 5 years there. Been jealously watching the accumulation you are all getting.
Somehow even this potentially ill-fated plowing plan doesn’t disuade me from wanting snow….
Give an address and I’ll send it all to you…
I have had many such offers! Hopefully at some point I’ll at least get some.
Nasty piling snow up against the windows. I’d run for my life. The roof doesn’t feel promising either. Run!
Run! I’m too tired from all the cardio I’ve done shoveling snow!
😀 😀 😀
Just think, now, about the poor “cubical people”! No view, then, after work, a BIG surprise!
There was no surprise, though…
That looks unsafe, unhealthy and unwise all the way around, Austin. There has to be a better plan than blocking the windows with the snow piles. Dang parking lot plowers. You’re co-worker is right. The windows could implode!
Let’s see what happens tomorrow…
At this rate you could arrive to work to find the building covered soon . I would definitely be wary of that awning , it could collapse on some unsuspecting employees head . At this point all i can say is good luck Austin ! ❄
That is a possibility!
Wow, kinda creepy from the inside out
Yes, it is. It’s just freaky.
