GotGarlic I actually enjoy driving in it, but only if no one else is on the road and I am staying local. I love how quiet everything gets and you can head the snow crunching under the tires.

LOL suzi I know what you mean. That is why I am going to enjoy every second of quiet for the few hours Rach is at school

Yep, they are MUCH better when DH gets the same snow day, and there's 2 against 3 rather than just me vs. the mob!

Great news GB. Enjoy your day off. I've never had an employer call me and tell me to stay home...

...unless you count being laid off.

I have my own personal opinion about snow storms- there God's(or whatever you choose to call our higher power) way of saying-SLOW DOWN, and recharge your soul!!
love and energy, Vicki

Gosh GB, you must work for someone with common sense. Where I use to work, we were the only place in town to stay open, no matter what. I am so happy to be retired.

I work for a very small company so thankfully the employees are not just numbers to the management. I am quite fortunate.

I'd trade our freezing rain for your snow!
DH used to be mine manager in a big strip mine (coal), and really dreaded going to work in weather like this, as all the machines would ice up, the pumps and hoses would freeze, and everything was a general big mess.
Retirement is so fine!
