Snow Day

On my snowy commute into work this morning for what seemed like 100th snow-laden car ride of this winter, I chuckled when the radio newscaster urged people to stay home. As a healthcare professional, we rarely see a "snow day." Hospitals and clinics don't close.

So to all of my healthcare, EMS, police and fire (and anyone else needing to get to work) colleagues: Please stay safe out there when Mother Nature throws this nasty weather our way. Some people must get to work whatever the circumstances are.

Transportation industry does not take a snow day; the longshoremen and waste management folks... they work every day regardless. Miners cannot even see the weather and power line workers excel in times of duress.

I enjoy your blog, NP. Thank you for sharing.

The heath professionals and the Visiting Nurse Service of New York certainly don't take snow days!

This is very true... I am always amazed at how our patients find there way to the clinic on snowy days! They are my inspiration on those challenging commutes.

Great Site!
