Last night, it was about 11:30 when I started to go to bed. I picked up my phone to take in the bedroom and just about the time I crawled into bed, the phone rang. It was Chad. He goes to bed early because he’s up by 5 or so. My first thought was that something was wrong because he wouldn’t be calling me that late. I said “Hello”. In a sleepy voice, he said “What do you need?” I said “Nothing. Why?” He said “You just called me. I thought something was wrong!” I told him I must have accidentally done it and apologized.
He was probably thinking . . this is what life is going to be like with my crazy mom nearby.
They have been working in this weather. He said the guy who rides with him calls him every morning to see if he wants to work. Chad said “Of course .. no work/no paycheck”. I don’t know how they do it when it’s this cold. He said most of the crews aren’t working but Chad isn’t about to miss a paycheck. I think he’s thinking next week may be worse with lots of snow and then they can’t work and he surely doesn’t want to miss two paychecks.
