I know that sometimes situations cause us to live farther away from our employers than we would have hoped for... however....
I'm just curious why you would commute 1.5 hrs to work? Now, I'm definitely the pot calling the kettle black. I've worked 1 hr 15 minutes away from work, but it was transitional. I just moved from one of the snowiest places in the country. Maybe that's an advantage for me. I shift the truck into 4 wheel drive, leave early and drive slow. Really the only times I have/had problems was when it's a complete white out (ie. visibility 1 foot in front of windshield), but the national guard is very happy to get nurses in to work. It's inconvenient to leave early, and risk having to stay at work overnight due to weather, but it is necessary. I DO however believe there should be some sort of a pull list for people. I would be happy to go in on an off day or work a double to help cover, if during the next storm when I'm scheduled someone else could stay over or come in if it wasn't fesable to me.
Anyway, leave early, drive safe, drive slow, always have extra blankets, coats and a candles in your car, and above all BE SAFE
