I work in Harrisburg, PA.. I live in York, PA.. It has been snowing/sleeting/icing most of the day since I left for work at 10:20 this morning… FH left for work around 2, and it took him 1 1/2 hours to get to work (His normal drive is about 1/2 hour)… It continued to snow and ice after he told me that.. We live up a PRETTY steep hill and have a decently steep driveway (for the time being, until they pave our road).. With our road NOT being properly paved, they will not plow our road, a gentleman down the road does it with his pickemup truck… I think he was gone for work when I left this morning.. I don’t know if our road was plowed, it was NOT when FH left.. Work has announced liberal leave (you can use your annual time and go home, with no penalty).. If I use annual time, I am REDUCING my chance greatly of being able to get the day before, and the day after my wedding off (I will have 16 hours of annual time just over a month before the wedding, which is memorial day weekend, they limit ‘offs’ to 3 per shift, per day… I will not be able to request the 24th until the first pay in Janurary, if I don’t use any annual time at this point).. What do I do.. Do I risk the roads getting WORSE until I leave at 8:30 or do I leave now?

Can you talk to your boss? They’re human when it comes down to their heart of hearts, maybe they’ll take some pity on you and let you leave early if you explain the situation.

Safety first, always. I understand that it’s your wedding and that time off for it is important, but you cannot attend your own wedding in a body cast….if it looks bad, go home….the rules are the rules, I think asking for an exception for your wedding is fine, you can always ask, but understand if HR is less than flexible, they have the rules for everyone for a reason, and the minute they make one exception for your wedding, they have to make one for Sally’s Aunt’s Funeral…and because Becky’s Cat has leukemia…it’s a nightmare…so by all means ask, but try not to let it get you down if they decline.
Leave now, get home safe and have some coco!

Honestly, I would wait. Im visiting my parents a little north of Pittsburgh and its terrible here. I tried driving to see FI but people were in ditches, roads are closed. Stay and be safe. Wait for the plows to do their jobs because they’re also waiting until the storms over because they can’t keep up with the inch+ per hour snow.

@Hyperventilate: I did talk to him, he told me I can use annual time, but I CAN’T or I won’t be able to set up my wedding in May :-(.. Our vacation accrual here is HORRID
@joya_aspera: Believe me I absolutely agree, I’m just sooo hesitant to risk not being able to get the time before the wedding 🙁
@Nona99: This place is full of f*cktards… They let people off for everything under the sun.. I am one of their ‘better’ employees when it comes to attendence and all… They just like JUST (she just walked behind me) leave because ‘my dog needs to me, storms freak him out’.. umm it’s a snow storm.. no thunder… BULL! YOU WALK TO AND FROM WORK!! UGHHHHH! Let me use the damn sick time I have like 60 hours of!! UGH! Sorry.Not yelling at you…
@IronMango: It’s stopped here for the most part, just a light flurry at the moment, with some sleet.. I am worried the later I stay, the worse it will get, considering my road isn’t plowed 🙁 [as far as I know]
