So after calling in because my car wouldn't start at four in the morning, my boss texted me to ask if I could still make it in today! Hahahahah, isn't that delightful!

*sigh* I said I'd try. I'm giving it another go in about two hours, with my same plan of attack: Extra layers, three heating pads, an extra blanket, and a bottle of water on the side.

(For the record, there's only three people on the schedule today: My boss (who has two meetings, apparently), me, and the only other person in the bakery who has a longer drive than I do. I am mystified why my boss didn't offer to put the two of us up at the hotel again. It's possible she ran out of free employee hazardous weather overnights or something, but seems unlikely? I mean, I've known about this cold front since, like, Saturday, and we got a mass text/phone call on Monday afternoon to let us know campus would be closed from 5pm Monday to 10am Thursday, so I feel like she should have taken that as some sort of sign. I'll accept partial responsibility, since I did spend most of the past two days wondering if I should text her to ask about Extreme Weather plans, but I am definitely not the only one who should be thinking about this sort of thing.)

It is so not on you to do the planning for things the company should be able to foresee coming up. It is the actual job of a manager/superviser/boss type to think about what might affect staffing and account for it. As for running out of weather overnights, if they don't have the authority to point out it will cost more to not have you there than to put you up then they should find out who does have that authority. If it doesn't cost them more to let you stay home than let you stay at the hotel then they shouldn't be asking you to come in. Either make it possible to do safely or don't ask it of people...GRRR
