Plowing Ahead- Snow or Not

by Michele Pesula Kuegler on February 16th, 2015

Feb.2015.snowIf you haven’t seen the headlines lately, it’s been a crazy few weeks of weather in New England. We went from no snow in early January to feet, and more feet, of snow. In fact, my town had the grand honor of garnering the most snow in the state of New Hampshire a couple weeks ago. *Woohoo!*

As a parent of teens and a CEO, these snowstorms have an assortment of impacts. Snowy days means the schools are closed. They also mean that it really isn’t worth driving to the office, especially when most of my work can be done from the home office. Snow days also mean meetings with interns need to be rescheduled, as their college closes sometimes, too. So, with a snowstorm (or two) literally every week for the past four weeks, I have found that some days  it is hard to know what day it is.

“Is it Saturday and our high school junior is sleeping late per usual?”

“Is it actually Friday, but aforementioned junior isn’t up because of a snowday/delayed opening?”

The winter has become a blur of snow and crazy schedules. However, with PeKu operating predominantly on a virtual level, it does make things better. The snow may fall, but I can hold phone meetings with my editor. I chat online with our engineer and designer. Our writers can submit articles, email questions, etc. without effects from the weather.

Although I really don’t want any more snow (our snowbanks are taller than I am), I am glad to know that I can continue to keep the world of PeKu running, regardless to the perpetual fall of snow.

  1. Hi Michele! I’m really enjoying your wonderful website; lots of great stuff to read during these snow days!

    This is exactly the kind of math problem that got me in trouble in school:

    If kid one has a 90 min. delay & goes to school 5 minutes away, & kid two usually leaves an hour before kid one but has a 2 hr delay & goes to school 30 minutes away, how much coffee does Mommy need to drink to figure out how to get them both to school at the right time? 🙂
