How To Stop The Snowsanity

work 2I think the horrifying images have been burned into your brains for all eternity, Modern Philosophers.

Yes, I’m talking about the Post Traumatic Snow Disorder inducing photos of my Snow Prison aka The Office That Was Ground Zero For Cabin Fever.

Every day for the past several weeks, I would arrive at work to find the windows covered by the piles of snow left there by the plow guys.  Every day, I would be chained to my desk with no view of the outside world.  Every day, the Cabin Fever would get worse.

And then today, I came to work and found this…

windows 5Free at last!  Free at last!  Snow Miser be damned, we are free at last!!!

I couldn’t believe my eyes, Modern Philosophers.  I could actually see the windows!

windows 4I guess the Snow Shoveling Elves came out last night after we clocked out for the day, and worked their magic in the empty parking lot.

windows 3My friend over at Admin clearly wasn’t joking when she assured me that she was going to make some calls about clearing the snow.

Clearly, she has angels on her speed dial.  It’s almost like she was able to bend the workmen to her will, as if she were a Vampire or something…

windows 2It’s a little like Rick finally shaving his beard on this week’s episode of The Walking Dead.

Who could recall that there was such a handsome building hiding under all that snow?

Look, my shadow even managed to photobomb this pic!

I wonder what they did with all the snow that had been covering the windows…

parking lot 1Ah.  Now it all makes sense.  They brought it out to the Stop sign.

parking lot 2And, of course, there is the giant snow mountain range at the back of the parking lot.

So how does it all look from inside the office?

windows 6We can finally see what we’re missing, and that plant can get some much needed sunlight.

Here’s hoping that not enough snow falls during these final weeks of Winter to cover the windows again.  If it does, there’s no telling how bad the Post Traumatic Snow Disorder epidemic is going to be…

About Austin

Native New Yorker who's fled to the quiet life in Maine. I write movies, root for the Yankees, and shovel lots of snow.

    Did your office mates break out in song, Austin? “This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine …”

    That is awesome. “Let the sushine in!”

    As you say, let’s hope Snow Miser doesn’t get quick and dastardly revenge …

    We finally got the street in front of our house cleared! Then it snowed another two inches, and finished with light rain that turned to ice. I’m working on setting up a laser beam to point at the road.

    While out here on the west coast complete strangers greet each other with “pray for rain” – truly bizarre weather.

  5. Natural sunlight again – must have been like working in a cave with the snow covered windows – YAY!!! Happy Hump/Snow Hump Day 🙂

    I guess they didn’t worry about the heavily laden awnings over the doors that look about to collapse. So happy you can actually see outside Austin , it has to be a wonderful feeling after staring at a snow wall after shoveling before coming to work . Hope it brightens you work day !
