Here’s what happens when we can’t use the loading dock

So, today was even crazier than yesterday. Among other things, we have a bunch of materials coming from someone off campus and the library loading dock is currently inaccessible. They’ve ripped up the street outside and are in the process of repaving it. It actually looks pretty cool. You can really see how the elevation gradually changed over the years since the road was built.

Still, this means that there’s no way to unload boxes anywhere near the library. So to get the stuff into the Woodson we (that is, Amanda) had to go fetch it from outside the Sallyport, load it up onto a library cart and push it over to Fondren. I have performed variations on this more times than I can count, and I can assure you that it isn’t as fun as it looks. Those pea gravel sidewalks are a real drag.

I’m going to go have a scotch and get back at it tomorrow.

    We’ll be out there again today making multiple loud trips across the quad! 🙂

    I am amused that when I click on the picture it turns the cart on its side – I’ll bet that is REALLY frustrating.
