What a busy day -- yet a really sad one, too
A co-worker of mine left a message with our company answering service that she wouldn't be in to work today, but left no details. Then somebody else called in sick. It made today a really busy day because we were already understaffed, but it made it even worse when I found why the co-worker wasn't going to be in today (or for the forseeable future, for that matter): her roommate died in a car crash yesterday, and her passenger was injured as well.
Gotta be careful on that pass, folks. Even if you're driving 25-mph, the ice will still throw you. I know they were driving safe, but sometimes that ice will come out of nowhere (especially on that pass), and it's sad that it happened. May she rest in peace.
