Wot snow?

So finally Northern Ireland gets a smattering of snow. Belfast seems to have got off lightly but reports from other areas suggest a bit more chaos out there. On speaking to a colleague the other day about snow I got a growling silence and a “Don’t start me on snow” response (Don’t worry Geoff no-one will know who it was – promise). It does raise however the need for companies and individuals to have a fallback plan for work when the road and rail infrastructure stop working. I could probably work anywhere that has a web connection and most people wouldn’t notice the difference but most people are tied to their desks. Time we really considered the cost of the lost productivity and invested in novel solutions to getting controlled access to applications and data to allow staff to remain productive.

So wot colour is your snowball ? 🙂
