Another build day lost

*sigh* snow in the Northeast has caused another snow day resulting in a whole build day lost. Anybody else lose days due to snow/cold?

Yes we do. My school since it is a private school has a lot of snow days. We take people from all over New Jersey and some from New york, We have already had 5 snow days and 3 during the building process

Re: Another build day lost

I went with the first option because we have not lost any days due to weather, but here in MN I most certainly know what snow is. We work at a building across the street from the school so when school is out due to weather we can actually start early (or at least we could while I was on winter break to be a supervising mentor).

Hurricane season would be torture, at least in snow you can lock the doors and know the robot is safe.

We're up to 3 days lost already, and we're starting to question if we should add a few more days to our calendar to compensate. (Of course, 811's build season is only 5 weeks long, because we have Semester Exams in the middle, and school policy forbids our opening until those are done.)

Re: Another build day lost

We have lost the last 2 days because of snow in St. Louis. We have recently installed January 32 and 33 as official days in our calendar.

We only meet three days each week. Can I pretend that all the rest are snow days?
