    If you don't want to work, take a day off? At least, snow and ice won't warrant a free day over here, rare though it is. In practice, you'll want to take a day off if it's snowing, unless you enjoy spending hours and hours stuck in traffic.

    No such thing as a "snow day" around here. They'd probably ask us to ski to work if they couldn't plow the streets.

    I saw snow falling once this winter and it was about a week and a half ago. It snowed maybe an hour and then melted.

    Doesn't make that much difference, actually. -31 F is -35 C. Just about cold enough to warrant an ice day from school where my wife is from. Over here, people would probably be going nuts about marathon skating outside, if it ever got that cold here.

    They predict quite some snow around here for tomorrow, but I have parental leave then, so for me that just means I get to play outside with my son for a few hours. Otherwise I'd be looking at getting stuck in traffic for a few hours, probably.

    I heard a frog singing outside a couple days ago. They don't usually show up unil at least March.

    My wife works as a Director at one of our local hospitals. They already have 8 non-work related frost-bite cases. A group of 4 adult males who were sledding were part of that number.

    That’s pretty funny.
