some questions ive always had
-what do you do when it snows really bad where you cant go anywhere. just get really drunk for like a week? does the whole city shut down? i cant imagine much is open w 9' of snow. wat if you are stuck w someone you dont like...or an ugly 1 night stand. that would suck
-how does school work. do they just estimate 2 weeks extra each year to make up for the snow days
-how do emergency vehicles make it places w 9' of snow. doesnt seem like you could drive through that
-for work...do you have to use vacation time when you cant make it in. that would suck.
Not many places get nine feet of snow dumped on them. In the areas that do, the people in general know about it and prepare for it. Those that don't sometimes if they dont have enough food, or their heat gets interrupted, or if they can't get their medications, etc. No choice but to hunker down and dig.
We don't get anything like that in Indy. Eight inches is alot here. Schools close for a couple days. If there's a large number of days missed the school districts may choose to add additional days. As far as work, the pharma I work at equips us all to work remotely so when snow is coming I make sure to bring my work laptop home with me and I'll just VPN in, teleconference meetings, etc. It's acceptable. Places that don't allow for that it typically is discretionary time off and eats up your paid time off.
