With most of the country in a deep freeze this winter – a day off from work or school due to inclement weather may mean sleeping in late, playing in the snow or enjoying a warm drink by the fireplace. However with an abundance of communication tools and technology, a snow day might mean you checking email or holding a conference call in the kitchen as you watch neighborhood kids build snowmen or your significant other clear the driveway. For those of you without electricity, it may mean making your way to a local coffee shop with power and WIFI to work on a major project.
