Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

I work in the financial services industry. Today, the stock market is closed, as are almost all banks, so there isn't much to do. My company's holiday schedule pretty much mirrors Wall Street's, so I obviously didn't commute.

I may go out later today, either to play in the snow or to run some errands. We got a little more snow overnight, so it should be a good time. I'd be lying if I said I was looking forward to going to work in the snow tomorrow, though. I don't mind coming home in the snow, but as a general rule, I get horribly sweaty with the extra effort of riding in the snow. I can always take a nice shower when I get home, but I don't have that luxury at work. I'll be darned if I let a little bit of snow stop me.

A funny story from one of my trips to the store on Saturday, though. We had a few inches of snow, roads were icy, and there was more sleet pelting me at this moment. I had a lady say something along the lines of "You poor thing... don't you have a car?" I said "Yes, two of them and an SUV. I don't like to drive unless the weather's bad!"

She looked confused as I rode off.
