It hasn't been above 27 here for a over a week, we got 7" of snow, and then the real surprise, 1/4" of glaze ice over it today.... oh yeah, were supposed to get 1-3" of more snow tonight over the ice........ HOW'S your commute??????
Well...considering that I live on the northern tip of of Manhattan and work at the southern tip, my commute is an underground train ride all the way (IND 8-th Ave. line) down the length of the island...it's pretty easy.
I walk two blocks up hill to get to the train from home and two and a-half blocks from the train to my job.
So...the snow is no excuse for me not showing up at work. DARNN!!

I love the snow, could do without temps below 25. I have 4 wheel drive, but that has not stopped any of those terrible drivers from crashing into me I am sick, because I love to shovel snow, my neighbors love it though!
Ryan, I remember those long cold winters. Week after week of frozen fog/smog in the valley. No sunshine. Hoarfrost on all the buildings and tree limbs. Soooooo depressing. Glad I moved East. So what if we're expecting 16 inches tomorrow.
Earl: Your recollection of Salt Lake/Draper city is a very good one.
Beyond not having temperatures above freezing, the fog/smog has been worse this year than anyone I know can remember it. I took pictures from Draper (remember Corner Canyon?) at about 5000', and looking down you couldn't tell if was clouds or ocean or what...it snowed the other the other day to warm things up, and we literally saw the sun for the first time in over a month
