    I don't know if I should be more concerned by the smear piece being passed off as journalism, or that they've presented an article painting someone as completely unqualified for their job and instead of blaming the person responsible for the terrible hire they made. They're blaming the person for being bad at their job.

    Woohoo snow day from work tomorrow.

    Boss set a new policy today linking in regards to when we close down for snow. Ol' softy was too generous, I estimate this just upped my annual paid days off by an average of 3 per year.

    When you live on the west coast you do.

    You should see some of the fucks trying to drive around here. Infuriating. If your not confident in the snow and/or your vehicle is inadequate to drive in the snow, stay the fuck off the roads.

    Hope you got the snowblower gassed up.

    As I said, its a whole different world out this way when it comes to snow. Half the population doesn't even own snow tires and half of those who do are scared shitless to drive in the snow. The hazard is higher from the dumb fucks driving 30 down the highway than it is from the road conditions. Additionally, the city only has a handful of snow removal vehicles which can only manage to keep the main roads & bus routes clear when we get dumped on.

    I remember when I was living up north, during a large snowfall it wasn't uncommon to see a convoy of about 6-10 dump trucks following behind a massive snow blowing truck down the main roads removing tons of snow in a quick and efficient way... and the sand/salt trucks, that shit gets everywhere.
