I started to add a daily coping tip to the SQLServerCentral newsletter and to the Community Circle, which is helping me deal with the issues in the world. I’m adding my responses for each day here. All my coping tips are under this tag.
Today’s tip is to contribute positively to a good cause for your community.
Winter is usually not too bad in my area, but we do get storms once in awhile. This used to be more of a hassle when I had kids in school, or I had to go to the airport, but now it’s not too bad. Worst case, I can’t go to the gym that day and need to figure out meals from what’s in the house.
However, when we get more than a few inches, it can make driving hard. Recently we had a decent storm, which meant that part of the trails to the hay feeders gets hard to traverse. I sometimes run the tractor and blade down those trails.
This time, when I did, I also took 20-30 minutes to go down my driveway, which helps me, but also down the 1/4 mile road I live on, clearing a space for others. A few people have tractors, but we somewhat randomly take turns doing this.
I decided to take my turn.
