Lady Justice doesn’t stop for sleet, snow

Snow falls in Longbranch for the first time this year, and I have jury duty.

It was an easy drive up the highway, eastbound on State Route 16, then came the Tacoma Narrows. The wind blew snow flurries sideways as I got on the bridge. Power was out along 6th Avenue. Cold and nearly deserted. Just me and a handful of hearty souls.

I arrived at the County City Building as fat flakes fell on me. A Pierce County worker worked his way up the sidewalk with a power sweeper. The line at the security checkpoint was light.

“It’s a blizzard out there,” a fellow juror said as she walked in the jury room.

Not exactly. But Lady Justice doesn’t stop for sleet and snow.
