Are You Going To Work Tomorrow?

Seems like Portland is shut down. I have to get in to work. Is your boss being the nice snow person or are you getting that message that says: “Harumph, um, we’ll see you at work tomorrow, yes?”

    If the roads are packed down into ice tomorrow morning, I’m not going anywhere. Even if it seemed doable to get from here to 1st and Gibbs, the bus lets off on Barbur, and it would be either a sharp hill or a set of stone stairs down to 1st — not likely the best of options.

    My company lets us work from home whenever we want, but I honestly prefer going in to the isolation of my house. And since I ride my bike, yeah, I’ll go in. in many ways, I felt safer today than ever, as everyone was going slowly and happily sharing the entire road (since the bike lanes are useless, even if you could see them).

    Yeah I saw The Pictures Of the Folks That “shared The Road Happily” The News and Emergency Rooms are full of them

    Say, no one in particular…

    Is that your feeling about the bike lanes all the time? Or is it just in this kind of enviroment?

    I am curious because when I used to get around mostly by bicycle I found them to be fairly useful aside from some certain stretches around town where they seemed to collect road gravel and broken glass…

    Technically our office is closed today (our office weather policy is that if schools are closed, we’re closed) but the reality in this newfangled digital world of tubes is that since I have a laptop, the expectation is that I work from home.

    I’m in the same boat – even though the office is closed, there’s never any such thing as a snow day for me. Unless the snow cripples my internet access for some reason, that is…
