Well after working all night and hopeful for the big predicted blizzard hourly weather checks, I still had to go to the courthouse this am for jury duty. I remembered from last time (when I had to throw out a perfectly good latte from Starbucks) that you can't bring coffee (or any drink for that matter) into the courthouse. What I didn't remember is that you can't bring cell phones in either. I told the security guy that maybe they should put that on the jury hotline for those of us who don't regularly frequent courthouses. He said "well there is a sign right there!" Um, a lot of good it does me inside the courthouse! Anyway, the roads were really slick and it took me 30 minutes to go the 9 mile trip, so I arrived 15 minutes late, and therefore of course had to park really far away. At any rate, I was none too happy to have to go back out in the cold, snowy, windy elements, all the way across the big parking lot to return my cell phone to my car.
All in all I ended up being 30 minutes late which turned out to be no biggie, sat in the courtroom for 2 hours while they selected and questioned about 25 jurors before they selected the final 14 jurors, and then the rest of us were dismissed. So thankfully I got to leave and was home and in bed by noon. Oh and $23.50 richer.
