Right now there is snow in the Washington, DC area. It stopped snowing many hours ago and the plows and salt trucks are out. The roads are being actively cleared.
Many can not get to work NOW (in time for 9am start) — but in a few hours, CAN and easily can….so go late. Yes, I know some have child care issues but for those who do not, just because you could not make it to work by 9am (or whenever your day starts), consider going in LATE. Not everyone has to take the whole day off.
