    Exclamation I should be in the office.....

    Well, today started as a normal day.
    Got up, got ready and left for the office.
    There is (in essence) a 3 mile long road that runs from my front door to school.

    Got on it and Oh B****r, it is rammed all the way from my house to school.

    So I went the long way (on the A1) and that is rammed too.

    Tried all of the little backroads that my SatNav suggested and they were all closed and flooded.

    So I turned around and went home.

    I then phoned the school to explain.

    The switchboard is overloaded and no one is answering the phones. The HT is not reading his emails and nor are the admin staff. Quite a few staff cant make it in as the A1 and the M25 are broken/flooded.

    Why did I even get up this morning?

    Is it 3 miles from home to work? Could you not have walked?

    I thought I would have an easy drive in to work after all the traffic caused by the tube strikes over the last 2 days. Took me over an hour to do my 20 minute 12 mile drive to work.

    The B653 between Harpenden and Luton was closed this morning. That was fun. I had to divert onto the A1081 and of course, that was rammed.

    Ended up being somewhat late this morning

    Best thing to do it so home and work remotely. Your far more productive that way than sitting in a car on speakerphone explaining to a TA how to use a DVD player.
