Speaking of restaurant work ...

Blessings, Darlings!

I worry about  my coworkers.  Most of the folks at the restaurant I work at are on the hairy edge of financial ruin.  The industry just doesn't pay much. 

So, on this day where it's 1 pm and the temperature is 19 degrees and the wind chill is 13 degrees - most coworkers don't have 'real' winter coats.  And some don't have cars, so they are walking to work.  NOT a good combo.

At best, many are layering a jacket and a sweatshirt right now.  A combo that works well when the temperature is over 20 and there's no wind, but not right for today.

I'm trying to find any coats-for-adults charities in my area to get some coats to (and direct coworkers to) but so far I've only found that type of thing for kids.  I might have to drop some more 'fun' stuff in my life and start this up myself for next winter. 

Frondly, Fern
