And yet here we sit. Oh well, I figure they'll close the office by noon at least.

Snow Days = Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches

Allow me to show my work.

Time to break out the snowmobiles to drive to work.
So you don't have to eat PB&J for dinner.

They've decided to leave the office open, but lock the front doors and allow anyone who wants to leave, leave. That means my team stays in place. I had half my guys not be able to make it in this morning, and I'm sending another one home at noon. Fun, fun.

Navigation isn't the problem... keeping the office open so that I don't lose pay is the problem.

The good news is the office is staying open, so I don't lose any income. However, I'm still stuck with PB&J; allow me to demonstrate why.

First, we know that...
Snow Days = Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches

Well, unfortunately...

Office Staying Open = Same Thing...

Office Staying Open = Hazardous Roads at Close of Business
Hazardous Roads at Close of Business = Traffic Problems
Traffic Problems = Idiots Getting Ticked Off
Idiots Getting Ticked Off = Accidents
Accidents = Increased Insurance Premium + Deductible
Increased Insurance Premium + Deductible = Falling Behind on Mortgage
Falling Behind on Mortgage = Foreclosure
Foreclosure = Upset & Depressed Wife
Upset & Depressed Wife = Divorce
Divorce = Jace Cooking for Himself
Jace Cooking for Himself = Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwiches

It takes a little longer to work out the math in this formula, but as you can see, I'm screwed whether the office closes or not.

Re: You need a tube of:

I was wondering how long it would take to trigger a sophomoric response to being "screwed."

That being said, I don't think I would be very apt to purchase anything that would make "screwing me" easier. That sort of encouragement only leads to purchasing future tubes and eventually to my own blog offending my very own "alternative lifestyle."
