Damnit Griff, you snow bunnies cause this by giving enough money to the ski makers they can pay people to make contrails which scare the russians into making it snow on us.

It's been sleeting for the last 3-4 hours. We're still due to get 3-5" and 20mph winds which should still continue to fuck things up nicely during the afternoon.

But you know what's open.

My office.

We had some snow in the morning two days ago and it has been raining since. Thankfully it will be gone by noon so it can snow up nawth. We didn't get any wind other than the usual breeze.

Yes, the owner is Canadian, and has a garage and a Tesla.

If he can make it in, you can make it in, right?

Just-now Update: as co-workers got stuck on the way in, he has just now made the argument that his roads were passable but maybe some others are not, and we can stay home.

Aside from the 2" of sleet on the streets you will also find my resume on the streets.

School's cancelled here. Work opened two hours late. Not sure what good opening two hours late does. The roads are still a mess.

But I put on my hiking boots and walked through the 2-3 inches of partially frozen slush to the metro, which is running fine. Worst part is where the snow plows block the storm drains with foot high frozen slush barriers, and I have to step into cross walks that have 4 inches of standing water in them, stretching all the way across the street. Tip toeing doesn't help much, but my hiking boots are pretty water proof.

It builds character and loyalty to the firm.
I've got an inch of snow under enough sleet the front storm door scrapes and that's a 6 inch step. The roads look black but it's going to take a long thaw. I guess the Crocuses are toast.

Did I mention we have icing conditions?
