snow

Dear Massachusetts, and more specifically BG's daycare:

It's winter. It snows in the winter. We are only getting about 10 inches.

Stop. Freaking. OUT.

I'm all about not driving if you don't have to do so. The less cars on the road, the better. I'm also in favor of companies allowing employees who have the ability to work from home to do so. But is there really a need for everything to come to a screeching halt? And for BG's daycare to close at 2, right in the middle of a 2 hour conference call that I can't miss? I don't think so!

love,
the person who is not afraid of the snow, even though I don't have 4 wheel drive.

At some point you should try being in a southern city when 10+ inches of snow comes in. You would honestly think the world was ending. People ransacked supermarkets with lines stretching a dozen or so people deep at each register. No one was out driving/walking during the actual snowfall. It's absolutely insane. It's just snow, drive carefully and you should be okay. The one caveat I would add in their defense is the entire DC area has approx. 4 snow plows. Streets were plowed maybe once a day during storms generating 20+ inches. Still, there was no need for the mass hysteria that followed.
