With the recent snow and icy weather here in North Carolina (for those of you from the South or familiar with our State DOT practices, we do NOT “do” snow or ice!), it made sense to work from home instead of risking life and limb on the slick roads. As I followed the weather and road conditions on the news, my thoughts wandered:
- Where do you draw the line on closing the office versus asking employees to come in?
- Does anyone in Raleigh own tire chains for their car or truck? Do people still use chains?
- How did the airport in Charlotte manage to use their entire supply of de-icing liquid in less than one day?
- How can you possibly sleep on the hard floor in the airport when your flight is cancelled?
- Is it possible to avoid cabin fever when you’re home with your kids after school is cancelled three days in a row?
- Why did my friend in Philadelphia have to tell me that the snow started at midnight and the roads were all plowed by 6:30 AM?
- How can a two day supply of road salt cost so much money?
Now the roads are mostly clear and everyone is back to work (and school). I’d love to hear how the rest of you all did with the storms. Pass along your stories to make me feel better (or worse!!).
