Snow Emergency Etiquette

So here is my burning question for the day:

Certainly when the wind is whipping around all over the place and there is a blizzard warning, one would not venture out into such weather.

But when that weather subsides, the wind is no longer blowing, and it is no longer snowing, when is it a good idea to go out?

Our county, and surrounding counties, are under a Level 3 snow emergency. This means that only emergency situations should take people outside and on the roadways. Ace works in a county to the northeast of us, and they are also under a similar warning. He can't reach anyone at his store, but there have been no "don't come into work" phone calls from the boss, either.

So my statement is: if there are level threes in both counties, he shouldn't go to work, right?

He isn't arguing with me as he really can't get his little car out of our driveway onto the not plowed sidestreet that we live on. The main road out front is looking pretty good, but this little sidestreet... he will get stuck post-haste, and he isn't taking MY car to work.

So I think work is a wash for him. Of course, he said he is going to wait until they plow the sidestreet to get to work. I said "well you will be here until Friday."

Of course, he can't call in his absence when nobody is picking the phone up at work.

So I think this is just one of those days ...

But there has been a little bit of traffic on the street, but nothing horrendous. Maybe like ... one car. No plows that I have noticed. And if the Municipal court is closed, then EVERYthing should be.

And let me tell you this: if my church doesn't cancel the little bit of Wed. night activities tonight, I will run SCREAMING into the street!

Ok.... here is the update on the church situation:

As of Wednesday, 2/14/2007, at 7:42 a.m.
The StoneBridge Church of God office is closed.
Check back after 12:00 p.m. for the status of Wednesday evening ministry and activities.

Let me be the first to state: I will NOT come into church just to have the three year olds to Kindergartners watch the puppet show and then keep them there until seven. I won't. I don't have choir. I do have to practice tonight for Sunday morning, but that can be done Sunday morning. Seriously, I will go all ape over someone...

We will not be attending any church activities either..consider it canceled.
I won't even be checking back after your report of the church status.
All done. In my mind..closed.
Matt is home as well today..thought it was pretty progressive of the Japanese to cancel work. Wow. Hope you are seeing more than a few cars across the street..otherwise, I better get my butt in there to take care of things.
Happy snow day girlfriend...
regrettably, our PSP is canceled..for good. :(

We don't have level anything emergencies, so we judge venturing out onto the roads on our own. Basically the rule of thumb is...stay off the roads for the first snow. Let the idiots who forget how to drive in it and those with bologna skin tires get the wrecks out of their system.

Any following snows, if you can drive it in your car, go. If you can't, bust out the snowmobile and go. If the snowmobile will get stuck, don't leave your house. ;)

Yeah, but the coppers gotta catch you first. And I guarantee you a snowmobile can both out-maneuver and out-run a cop car. ;) LOL!
