Snow day snow day wooo!  
Five inches of snow overnight, with an expected accumulation throughout today of two feet. Since Remy was going to be sent to do consulting for New York State, and State employees don't go to work if it's raining, he's off for the day. And I just got called and told not to bother to come in. YAY! Not that I was planning to, but my company hadn't given any official cancellation notice, so I was going to feel really guilty about staying home- even though my mom called from 500 miles away and was like, "I saw the Albany weather report. Don't go anywhere!" ;) That's me, though. I could be half dead and rotting in a sewer, and I'd be worried about whether I'd be putting too much of a burden on my coworkers/family/etc.

Anyway, I promised myself I'd make this day productive, if I actually got it off. I'll take care of some things I've been procrastinating on for months. But for now, I'm going to enjoy some coffee and an impromptu "weekend" with my husband and kittens.

Happy snow day! And call us later, Cheryl and I might have dress pretties for you to try on :)

State employees don't go to work if it's raining? Haha. My Dad was the only person in his office and he lives 60 miles away, further than anyone else. He also happens to be a state employee. However when the blowing snow began, he hightailed it in a southernly direction into the freezing rain tundra.

Can't take credit for that one. Came directly from the mouth of one of the bigwigs at the New York State Office of Mental Health. =P

Yeah, the office of the mental health is a little off their rocker. Plus, many of them can work from home.

"My Dad was the only person in his office and he lives 60 miles away..."

Thereby proving the point.

I just get irked when broad generalizations are made that are not entirely accurate. Plus, a good deal of state employees can and do work from home in inclement weather.

And yet your own statement supports the generalization.
