I'd rather stay safe and sound and keep my car out of an accident instead of helping these businesses stay open when they should stay closed.

This is nothing new, Its winter in New England. Business goes on no matter what the weather is. Sure not your entire staff needs to show up cause depending on the business it will probably be a slow day, but that doesn't mean everything needs to shut down. Look at Buffalo NY where it snows almost every day throughout the winter... if they shut down every time they got a dumping, nothing would get done for months. It seems like a trend over the past few years that more and more companies are just shutting down when bad weather strikes where in the past they would not even think of closing their doors to customers... Maybe due to the fact that more and more people are buying these little cars that are great for the environment, but are useless when we have anything more than an inch of snow on the ground. Not the best bet when you live in an area that gets snow for 4-5 Months out of the year. In my opinion its nothing more than a usual winter day in Massachusetts and many business owners look at it the same way. Sure their employee safety has to be a major concern, but if you take it easy and go slow, there is no reason why you couldn't get where you are going safely.

It's so nice to see a boss who is actually concerned about their employees' safety. This is pertaining to Aubuchon's and obviously NOT the financial institutions who think that banking is a number one priority over employee safety

Seriously? It's not about shutting everything down, it's about SAFETY!!! It's also about people's unnecessary "priorities"
