I was supposed to drive to Wisconsin today for a meeting, but yesterday I arranged to just participate by phone. So, I loaded up some files and declared today a snow day. Since I'm self-employed, when I don't work I don't get paid, I'll take a hit to the pocketbook (I'm taking the next week off for vacation too, so this month is going to be short), but it was kind of fun to have most of the day off.
