This means we will be doing the snow day shuffle of figuring out what is closed (update: since starting this post, the government has announced it's closed tomorrow), when, and how work will get done
But the upside is I will get one extra snuggly morning with L. and I have the flexibility to work from home. Also, I can avoid another morning like I had last week...
Tuesday's snowflakes and the only available parking spot at the train station being half a snow bank, combined with my healing ankle should have been enough of a warning sign for me to turn around and work from home. But no.
It took a lady spilling her coffee all over me on the train ride in. The warmth from her venti latte was quickly replaced by me shivering cold, with wet pants (brand new, thankfully black though), and a powder blue coat splattered with coffee stains, a train ride right back home ($5 each way), and a $40 dry cleaning bill. I started work at noon that day. Fun times.
Read this article about how the stress of commuting screws up our bodies, and if you are not convinced that women are more stressed out by commuting than men, read this one as well and note the concept of trip chaining (I never realized there was an actual term for this!).
What do you do when your kid's school closes for inclement weather? Do you get a day to go outside and build snowmen, or do you telecommute? Let me know by leaving a comment below!
