Snow news is good news

So, what do you do on snowy, icy days that keep you out of the office? How bad does it have to be for you to stay home? Being a hearty New Englander, I'm typically undaunted by weather of all types on work days. I actually look forward to the challenge of braving the elements, scraping Kevlar-like sheets of ice off my truck and gingerly navigating the roadways on my way to the office. Getting into work is like a badge of honor and the reward is an empty office with plenty of conference rooms.

I can't say the same for many of our fellow workers out there in the Arctic-like former Confederacy. One mention of snow or freezing rain and you might think that the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse were spotted outside the Shenandoahs. Thank goodness for virtual workspaces or the region's economy would grind to a screeching halt.

What is your work like? Any ideas for making snowy days more palatable and productive with your co-workers?
