Whats your cutoff for saying no to driving to work in inclement weather? If your normal commute is 45 minutes, but you know that due to weather it will take longer, at what point do you just say screw it? 2, 3, 4 hours? I ask because here in PA we have had a 18 inches of snow in my area the past couple of days. Normally it takes me 45min to an hour to get in. Weds. it took me two hours, and yesterday I did not even bother because I had a good 4 hours at least of shoveling to do to get out. Yet on both days there are people I work with that drove 3, and in once case 4 hours (normally it would take these people an hour) to get in. For me personally my cut off is 2 hours. Anymore than that and I think it pretty much means that conditions are bad enough that you should not be out. Also, one caveat, I think part of the reason for the "come hell or high water" attitude of my colleagues is driven by senior management of my department. I can't explain the pervading philosophy very well, other than to say that the message that comes down is that "unless you are miserable, stressed, and overworked than we are not doing our job".
