On arrival I met kharin, who hadn't been able to make it all the way into work either due to other accidents on the ice. It took him more than 2 hours to get in to work yesterday due to flooding. In other news, the current assessment is that his car likely is a write-off, though that's yet to be confirmed by the insurers.
Let's hope this is all cleared up by next week. At the moment, my thoughts on the new job are: "I've got a bad feeling about this".
