How's this for some shit? Government is closed, I work at a government facility, I'm not emergency or essential personnel, and yet I just found out I either have to go in anyway, or I can take PTO.

Every other time I've been in a non-essential slot, if the government was closed we stayed home and billed to contract.

That is uncool. Do you even have an option of working somewhere? If your facility is closed then it shouldn't be your problem if there is any justice.

I got an email from the company less than an hour after the government made their call that we could stay home and bill "Inclement weather" for 8 hours tomorrow.

Well, there are some essential personnel who work at the facility, so the building will be open. But still, the point of closing is to keep people off the roads for their own safety.

FCPS has closed for the next 3 days. I wasn't expecting THAT.

Wow. I noticed they'd already cancelled tomorrow several hours ago, but didn't see them wipe out the week.

Well, Spotsy is closed Monday and Tuesday so far--and since Thursday and Friday are holiday days, it would kinda make sense to close Wednesday as well.
