Stay home if most other people did too. But, if you are the only one staying home, it could look bad on you...
Unfortunately, there's not really a public transport system here since its not a very large town. Its pretty much a "if you don't feel comfortable driving in ice, don't" thing at work, and I definately don't feel comfortable driving in the ice. Especially not if its still coming down, and is expected to all day.
I work in a lab, so its sort of my own problem if I don't come in - it just means I don't get my own work done.

They were defintely telling people yesterday not to go out, and it seems like there are even more roads iced over today...Yesterday morning alone there were three serious wrecks, several more minor ones, and around 20 people who had to call for help after sliding in ice...Maybe I'm a wimp, but I don't want to drive in that!
