You know what the best thing about working closer to home is? I'm not afraid of snow anymore. The fact that a 15 minute jaunt becomes a half hour drive rather than an hour commute turns into a 2 hour commute would come in a very close second.
So, given the incredible amount of snow that has been dumped on us in the last 3 hours and the promise of many more inches, can I just say--one more time--that getting laid off back in June was one of the absolute best things to ever happen to me? Seriously, if they hadn't closed up shop, not only would I be working for a company that made me miserable AND paid me less, but I would also still be sitting in traffic for another hour from now? Losing my job wasn't tragic...it was a miracle!
