In anticipation of potential snow today, my firm sent out a helpful reminder of its inclement weather policy. I've included excerpts below:
"The firm's policy is to remain open at all times during normal business hours-- our responsibilities to clients require that we follow this policy. . .
This office does not automatically follow the Federal government as a means of determining how to respond to severe weather conditions.*(emphasis in original).
* Unless weather conditions are severe (e.g., hurricane, blizzard, terribly-heavy snowfall), the office will remain open."
That's right, not just heavy snowfall, we must have terribly heavy snowfall (which I believe is terribly unlikely in DC) to even think about a day off. Unlike those lazy Federals who left at 2 p.m. today just because of some icies. No wonder the terrorists are winning.
