It Was One of Those Days
Today has been a crazy Friday. It all started with the school closings this morning. Just the threat of the amount of snow we were supposed to get caused most if not all the schools in the Binghamton area to close today. There were also a lot of accidents and vehicles getting stuck in the snow today, which had us constantly updating the traffic this morning. It seemed like we were getting a school or a business closing, or accident updates every two minutes.
On top of that, we also had a new computer system installed here at the station, and today was all about learning the new system. After I got done learning what I needed to know, (I hope I remember most of it come Monday) I had to start doing my regular work. Here I am 7 hours into the day already and I still have a couple more hours of work ahead of me. I have to laugh because a lot of people ask me if I only work from 5 a.m. till 10 a.m. because they are the hours that I'm on the air. I always chuckle and tell them no, then I explain some of the other work I have to do after I'm done with Freezone in the Morning.
Today it was all about learning the new computer system just like you would have to if the company you work revamped your whole computer system. Technology is a beautiful thing, but it could be a real pain in the butt to learn. I feel like I ran a marathon today. But at least it's Friday so I can sleep in tomorrow. Oh, wait, I have to work at 7 AM. Tomorrow. Ug, at least I will get two more hours of sleep than I do on a weekday.
Enjoy your weekend, I know I will enjoy mine.
