A Simple Judgement Call

I made the conscious decision to not go to any meetings Monday night. I actually had a doubleheader, but, upon fruther review, I decided to not risk my life and car and stay home.

It was actually a pretty tough decision. I wasn’t happy about it, too. Ask my Dad if you don’t believe me.

I called the respective town halls, to make sure that they weren’t on.

One of my meetings was postponed, the other wasn’t. I’m really not sure why the other wasn’t. I mean, even if the volunteers live in town, that’s a pretty risky bet to get everyone at the town hall. It seems a bit scary.

Before I made my decision, I was weighing the pros and cons of going to those meetings. I was really dead set on going.

If you haven’t figured out already, I hate following up on meetings the next day. I like being there, seeing/hearing the discussions and wrapping up my stories then and there. I really get uncomfortable following up on things because it’s always a different story. It’s never as good as if you were there. It’s just not the same and I can tell. It bothers me.

Th pros of going are slim, in the scheme of things. I realize that my health and safety come first. I shouldn’t risk my life, especially when it comes to meetings. There’s nothing too major in the meetings, but, rather, things that I’ve been tracking for awhile that I want to continue to keep up on.

I knew that I was protesting, in my head, for nothing. Staying home was the right decision and I shouldn’t have thought otherwise.

The last thing I need is to get stuck 20 miles from home at 9 p.m. on a Monday night in the middle of nowhere. That wouldn’t be fun.

Have you ever had any snow predicaments? Let me know!

    Get stressed out at making the same decision every time the beeper goes of while its storming or snowing. Will it be worth it?
