Quoted from desertT1:
I did the same. Not sure who all normally gets today off, but I’m working. We don’t get many holidays off on the day of but instead get them at the end of the year as part of a 2-week shut down, which is pretty nice.
I work for myself and normally only take New Years, 4th of July, Christmas, and Thanksgiving off for holidays, along with 3-4 weeks of vacation. I could take as much time as I want off but I don't make any money and still pay my expenses when I don't go to work.
Quoted from Oaken:
I wish it was as balmy as 12 degrees outside.
It has been near or below zero F here for almost a week. I was just thinking this morning about when I lived in MN and it would do that for a month almost every winter. I don't miss that. I still remember walking my bundled up 3 and 1 year old sons through a parking lot at -20 F without wind chill to go meet their newborn brother in St. Paul 12 years ago.
