"It aint me, babe." There are probably a few Portlanders with recent experience who could give it a go.

I telecommuted from home today so I missed it - my entire department is working from home. I think I'm doing the commute tomorrow though and I'll let you know if I make it.

We'll see. I intend on riding tomorrow, but Thursday is a maybe. It's only three miles and if schools are closed and UNC cancels classes, I will have the road to myself.

If we're open tomorrow, I'll be riding in. That said, I expect a decision by OPM this evening that we'll be closed tomorrow. Proably even money that we'll have at least a two hour delayed opening on Friday.

Except for the guy who lives 1/2 mile from the office, my entire department is planning on logging in from home or taking a PTO day tomorrow. Forecast is for 14"+ by the end of the day.

Not me. I have to be in at 2am just when it begins in ny. And with the way it looks , won't be home
for 24 hrs. But on the upside looks like 40 degrees next week.

Rode in and it was nice. Cold, but nice. Was the next-to-last guy out of our group to leave at 13:15 and there was already over an inch on the ground. I aired down the tires, took my time, and went for it.

Campus is closed tomorrow, so I guess it's a weather day.
