Acid dad said, "Kids get out of the room! Dad needs to talk to Miley."

I've got the longest commute and arguably the worst car for snow in the office, and I'm one of three people that made in today. Normally that would piss me off, but the two that made it in are my boss and my boss' boss.

Jesus everyone is a pussy about the snow. Just drive carefully. It's not that fucking bad. People in North Dakota (Teacher, where are you?) deal with this shit every day.

What people forget is that North Dakota also has people who know how to drive in the snow, people who buy and/or equip their vehicles with snow in mind, and a department of transportation that knows how to clear snow so it doesn't become a sheet of ice.

Here in the NY/NJ area its about public transportation. I drove to the train station this morning but came back home because I wouldn't have made it in until 11ish. We do everything online though so its more productive to have everyone at home 9-5 instead of in the office from whenever-4.

How much is it snowing there? People here overreact anytime it sticks, but there is a point at which the accumulation becomes an issue.

I've been fortunate in that I have a vehicle that's well equipped for snow, so I've been okay the handful of times I've had to deal with real snowfall around here. I found it to be very similar to driving in mud - take your time, go easy on the skinny pedal, etc. However, at some point, when you get enough on the ground, it becomes an issue simply by virtue of having a lot of stuff on the roads. When that happens, it's not so much about driving in a bit of snow; it's about not having the vehicle/equipment or municipal ability (no plows, salt, etc.) to manage it.

A former client of mine, who I stopped working with because they kept dragging their feet and then claimed, they were in demand and had people knocking their door down wanting to be their agent, send me an email today asking if I was interested in being their agent again. rotflmao.gif

I probably won't have time to post, but I might tweet once in a while. Their internet is pretty sparse. My girlfriend has it in her apartment though.

There's just not that much snow. Anyone with fresh-ish all-season tires and FWD or AWD can get around so long as they are prudent. I definitely agree that in major storms where a foot or more comes down, it's easy for the crews to get backed up, for back roads to miss plowing, and for people to have serious problems. But this was about 6-8 inches in most places. For all the storms we've had the past few years, even the Snowpocalypse and SnoMG that each dumped about 2+ feet in the area, I've had zero problem getting around. I haven't missed a day of work. Not one. And no accidents. Granted I've had AWD, but we're talking about a 3-series and a minivan here - not exactly monster SUVs with high clearances - and there's no shortage of those around here. My street didn't get plowed for 4 days in one of the major storms, and you know what we did? We got these things called shovels and dug out.

The roads weren't great this morning but they had the added advantage of having almost nobody on them. Yet people are either in the "I'm going to drive 25 MPH on the completely plowed highway in the fast lane three wide with two of my fellow morons" camp or the "fuck you I'm driving on the unplowed shoulder at 70 to get around you" camp. Probably 5% of drivers fall within a band that I would call appropriately cautious and courteous. WTF is wrong with people?

i think its more of a mental thing. when i woke up and looked out the window this morning i was like FML im not going anywhere. but when i actually got outside and hopped into my non AWD 05 accord and drove the 3 blocks from my house to a main road, it was 100% clear. no reason not to get around today. i drove from bmore to the DC area and back and the drive was the same as any other day. its more just the PIA of walking through a little snow to your car. thats why we have boots.

yesterday after work getting to my house (and the PO) while it was snowing was a bit of a bitch tho. horrible commute.

This is done. Onward and upward.
