Sending best wishes to you!  I’m sure your husband will be fine!  He probably knows how to drive in this crappy weather, and hopefully everyone who doesn’t need to be out will be staying safely at home!

My office isn’t closed today, and we are most CERTAINLY not essential employees.

I called out of work because my 40-minute drive is as of yet unplowed, and the roads are looking pretty crappy on all the traffic cams I looked at.

I work in an architecture firm. Designing retail stores. Yep.

P.S. I won’t call any service guys today ;P
But I am sure your husband will be OK!

@Aquaria:  Good vibes to you!  I’m sure your husband be a-okay.

I spent yesterday chasing a tow truck off of my car in my pajamas and then frantically trying to find parking because my city changed the parking rules for this storm and were literally towing everyone in my neighborhood… I HATE driving in the snow!  And also, who thought it was a good idea to have the tow truck drivers sliding around unplowed streets in 18 wheelers?

We’re open and my commute was actually the easiest I’ve had in months- subways were super fast and completely empty. That said, half of my office called out….which sucks because half of my dept is basically a call center, so now the few of us that are here have to do doubletime to make up for it.

New Yorkers- get your butts into work!!

I just dropped DH off at the train (in the cold/rain I try to drive him because even though its walking distance it isn’t fun in the gross weather) and I am SO glad that my work was cancelled (an hour drive normally)

 

I can’t believe how bad the streets are still (from all the blowing snow I think) – even the main ones! and I live in the city not some suburb

Sending good vibes! Although with so few people on the road I think he will be fine.  If he’s normally the careful one he should be good!  I am usually more worried about crazies….

I am fortunate to be able to work from home today… I could go to the office but way before the holidays I asked my boss if she would be ok if I did so…. I was only thinking that I wasn’t sure if I would still be in my hometown in Carlisle, so the option would be nice, and now I am very glad I did ask! 

Also… I really need to get new tires on my car. We’ve had so much snow it seems to me already, I wonder if it will continue this way or if we’re gonna get all of it now and hardly any the rest of winter?!

@Aquaria:  Sending my best wishes to your hubby!

We are in NJ, but work in NYC. DH’s office is closed, but I can work from home. 

@bkrocks13:  That’s interesting that your commute was so easy. I figured everything would be suspended/delayed.

That stinks- I’m sure your husband will be fine! 

Both my DH and I have snow days again today. According to the news we’re at 23.5 inches of snow so far and  -15 outside, so yeah… We’re not going anywhere any time soon.

@Aquaria:  I am a teacher so I obvoiusly have a snow day and it’s FI’s birthday so he just happened to take today off. Otherwise, he would have had to drive 45 minutes to work this morning. I am so happy that he didnt! I will send good thoughts your husbands way – he will be fine!

It’s a high of 4 in Rochester, NY and on lake Ontario where I am we were blessed with about 28″ since Wednesday morning! I drove to work bright and early this morning. Snow emergency? Not for Western New Yorkers!

Hi @Aquaria:  I am sure everything will be fine… but I very much understand WHY you are worried.

I’ve been watching the News here this morning, you guys on the Eastern Seaboard are really get hit bad by that Blizzard / Nor’easter Hercules.

However, I’d be willing to trade…

New York City is a balmy 10 F (-12 C) right now…

Compared to the crazy ARCTIC DEEP FREEZE that we all are currently getting in Southern & Eastern Ontario…

Temps are unbareable here !!

-23 C (-9 F) and with the WIND CHILL it feels like -31 C (-24 F).  And they are saying it could get even colder !!

Once you get past -20 ANYTHING Fahrenheit or Celsius it is just frickin nuts !!

It is sooooo cold that much have Ontario has been experiencing Frost Quakes (they are like sonic booms) all thru the night… very uncommon for Southern Ontario around “the Golden Horseshoe” and Toronto.

I would take a ton of snow over cold any day.
