Ice storm 1998. I was late 3 hours only to be sent home because the power was off. Then they deducted me 3 hours pay for being late. I asked the three managers how they managed to get to work: "We decided to stay at the hotel across the street. Only an idiot would try to get home in that kind of weather." I guess, only an idiot would try to get to work in that kind of weather also.
