Hey folks, I'd like your take on this.

My company delayed opening until 10 this morning but it's started snowing again. The high is supposed to get up to 29F, so in theory, no melting unless there is a lot of traffic.

Apparently the news is reporting that there will be no accumulation, but I know we've picked up dust here at my apartment. I'm worried about the snow freezing on the driveway because it's one way in and one way out. There's a park across the street, but I'm worried that if I park there for the weekend my car will be towed.

My boss isn't coming in today and I think it's about evenly split. They let us go early yesterday which was practically a first. I'm debating on whether to take a snow day today for the various reasons that I have mentioned here.




It looks like the powder we got this morning has blown away, but it's too cold to go check the driveway.

The call volume into work is nil.

I get paid whether I go in or not, whether I work or not. To me, that would be the deciding factor, and since you don't mention it - I cannot make a judgement call.

While the snow may be too heavy to 'check the driveway' it is NEVER "too cold" to do so. Only a wimp would admit that.

I would say enjoy your day off, but knowing you, you'll be wrought with indecision until you finally make one, then you'll second guess yourself the rest of the day.

It looks like we are going to have to burn vacation time, but as I'm already two hours behind and it looks like nothing is going on at the office, I'm staying home.

Only a wimp would admit that.
I've already been outside several times this morning. I'm too lazy to go check.

I would say enjoy your day off
I plan on it.

You know me too well. I've made my decision. I'm staying my ass home.

Do not be trapped by the need to achieve anything. This way, you achieve everything.

This was my first every snow day to take. There are some great advantages to being an adult. ;)

Also, I need a winter avatar.
