Predictions of a winter storm including nearly a foot of snow have been on the horizon for nearly a week now. The day of reckoning has arrived and the meteorologists were right: nearly 3 feet of snow have arrived. Since the temperature is below freezing, there are concerns about ice. Your local municipality and your state's Department of Transportation have warned that the roads are considered treacherous and have warned everyone who have non-emergency travel aspiration to stay at home.
In your mind that says "SNOW DAY"! It'll be great to stay home, make a snow man, hang by the fireplace, eat comfort food and sip hot chocolate.
You begin checking your Blackberry the night of the storm. Around 3 AM, the conditions have worsened per your local weatherman. Before you snuggle back in your bed, you see that your curmudgeon of a boss has sent out a email which reads "We are aware of the looming weather. We, however, have clients to serve. Our clients are scattered all over the globe and their expectation is that we be available if they call. Everyone is expected in the office at 8 AM. Those who do not show are subject to disciplinary action which could include termination."
What would YOU do?
