Remember when everyone was in a frenzy over an approaching blizzard and got sidelined by an icy evening commute?
The smallest amount of snow plus freezing temperatures turns every car driver’s commute home into an hours-long ordeal. Stopped traffic on the interstates and major roads means even buses are stuck with nowhere to go. Pedestrians and cyclists have better luck, despite slippery and freezing cold trips home. The winners that day are most likely those who were already teleworking.
