Not your ordinary day

Today started out like any other day. Went to work.....just another day at Walmart. And then................

3:30pm--I have five minutes left on my lunch period. The store manager makes an announcement over the sound system telling associates and customers to leave the building immediately. He then repeated the announcement. When I joined some of my co-workers, I learned that the reason for the evacuation was the fact that a bomb threat had been received. The police were called in; some blocked the entrances to the store, others (including a police dog) inspected the building. We were allowed back in the building at 4:35pm. The employees were asked to move their cars to the farthest away parking lot, which we did. After we were cleared to return, we got great parking places. ;-)

Things returned to normal pretty quickly, but I lost an hour where I could have gotten some work done. Oh well............I still got most everything done I needed to.

Tomorrow's another day. Perhaps it will be more routine. Perhaps not. Looking forward to it.

Until next time, keep your stick on the ice.
