A good day to stay home

January 18, 2010

Monday is an official holiday, with the celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Day. Expect the following to be closed today: Banks, schools, post offices, libraries, and most government offices. Cal Poly and Cuesta College are also closing down.

Meanwhile, the heavy rain continues today, buffeted by heavy winds.

Over in Britain, they’re calling today “Blue Monday,” the most depressing day of the year. [Daily Mail]

A British company, FirstCare, that helps businesses deal with employee absenteeism, claims today is the most miserable day of the year. They claim it’s a combination of bad weather, post-holiday blues, and the fear that the next payday is too far away. So on Blue Monday, employers expect more sick calls than normal.

Stay dry. Drive safe. Happy Martin Luther King Day from CalCoastNews.
