Anyway, thank goodness people's common sense kicked in. No work. Trains have been shut down.
What boggles my mind completely is watching the news and finding people stranded in airports, etc. complaining about getting stranded. But seriously, would you want to travel in the middle of a blizzard? If getting stranded is inevitable, I'd rather be stranded in an airport where it's nice, warm and slightly comfy, instead of mid-travel. Picture emergency landings. Or even sitting for hours in a train that can't go anywhere because of the snow. Or riding a bus that might run into slippery conditions while out on the road. Ugh.
Isn't your life more important? I'd be thankful that my safety (and the other passengers') is a priority, instead of whining about getting stuck in an airport. Sure, getting stranded is an inconvenience. But I'd rather be inconvenienced than be faced with the alternative - that is, having a head-on collision with a snowy force of nature.
