Lockport Union-Sun & Journal —
But, they’ll blame it on the weather, instead of their imprudent speed for the conditions.
Adding to the mayhem was a short-staffed newsroom. One person was out on vacation and a second called in sick. It’s difficult enough working through the day down one person, but when you’re down two, it makes the day much longer. When we’re short-staffed, I’ll pick up the slack where I can, and on Feb. 8 it meant taking a 20-minute drive (less than 10 in normal conditions) to Dysinger Road for the bus accident.
Throw in writing a couple of stories, and it made for an 11-hour day. Then I went out and officiated a senior league (18-and-over division) hockey game where the one team behaved like 5-year-olds in dire need of naps. Not much fun.
Guess I’ll blame it on the snow.
