So I did, and when I got there I was one of about 15 people and nobody could get any work done anyway
. (I didn't have a car at the time so this involved waiting for an unreliable bus - when exposed flesh can freeze in 5 minutes, and the bus is routinely 20 minutes late, I think it's pretty reasonable to stay home!)
Nowadays, I'd probably put on my warmest layers including the facemask, and ride in to the amazement of all, but I wasn't quite there yet.
