Due to inclement weather in the Puget Sound region, Paizo offices are closed February 4th, 2019. We will reopen again when it is safe for our employees to travel to work.

Thank you for your patience.

Looks like snow.

Closed again today as everything is now a sheet of ice.


Hey, so are we! We can be ice buddies!

Hey all, I'm about to put up a closure notice around the site and wanted to update this thread that we're currently closed due to another incoming storm. This weather appears to bleed into next week in the forecast and we'll try to keep folks updated.

If you have an upcoming subscription shipment, please check this thread for updates from the Customer Service team.


Stay safe and take care guys.

See you when you get back.

Minnesota commiserates. I spent yesterday teleworking and watching my car get covered by 8" of snow.

Yeaaaaaaah. XD Closures are a smart move on their part - the Pacific Northwest hasn't gotten a lot of snow in quite a long time, and safety should come first. I'm glad Paizo is choosing to shut the offices.

I thought my office was the same this morning. (Obviously not due to weather.) Stay safe everyone.

Take care of yourselves!

Stay safe, all! That goes to everyone affected by the storm (Florida-man here, I'm so sorry x: )


Stay safe!

Seattle and the area get stupid when it comes to snow. As someone who lives here now, and has lived in New Mexico, the desert is better able to deal with snow than we are here. :)

As a Midwesterner, stay safe at home, get some hot cocoa and a sled and live it up while you have it!

And for perspective, we're supposed to get upwards of a foot of snow in the next week, so at least you aren't here. :-)

Stay safe, stay warm, be careful, and if you have to go out, *wear layers*.

Stay safe & warm!!!

From Illinois here, where we had wind-chills reported at - 55 F last week. But my office didn't close at all. Even though it was colder here than in ANTARCTICA!!!

We are way far north from you, but the snow and cold has blanketed all of BC as well. My Grade 1 kids stayed home from school 2 days this week and the school buses haven't run here all week. I hope the weather improves for you all next week. Stay safe and warm.

The desert is flat.

Stay safe! Also dang why is North America getting all the inclement and cold weather? Japan has been having the most mild winter in a looooonnnnnng time.


Be safe - sending warm wishes and positrons from Buffalo, NY


Piratey Steve's advice for weathering snowstorms: While everyone else is buying up all the milk, bread, and eggs at the supermarket, I'm gathering tortilla chips, salsa, and shredded cheese. Toasty nachos inside while the snow rages outside is one of life's greatest pleasures.

Plus, if you lose power, chips and salsa ain't a bad consolation prize.

Stay warm, stay safe.

Albuquerque is "high desert". Like Denver, it's a mile above sea level. Just east of the city are the Sandia Mountains. Add another mile.

when I was in grad school in ABQ, I got up one morning to drive to class. In the five mile trip, I counted twenty seven cars with their noses in the ditch - because of a half inch of snow.

I wish I could send you all care packages with warm winter boots, blankets and hot cocoa!

Hmm


Reminds me of Vancouver and Victoria couple millimetres of snow shuts everything down lol, I've always wondered why this happens when I visit there especially since we can have 3+feet of snow in a few days with -40 weather and everything is still open.

Dunno about up north, but it happens here in Seattle in large part due to the topography. There are a LOT of hills in the area.

It has a lot to do with local infrastructure as well. We have a lot of steep hills in the Midwest but we also have a huge fleet of plow, salt, and brine trucks that are out even before the snow starts.

Of course we have all those trucks because we average 70+ inches of snow a year, I'm sure if Seattle averaged more than half a foot a year they would too.

Stay safe and warm!

We had been too. (When I say we, I live in the Puget Sound region where Paizo is headquartered). In January, we had weeks of sunny days with temperatures in the 60's or 70's F. That was very unseasonable for us; it is usually much colder with plenty of rain and some light snow. Then we got this unusually heavy snowfall.

Well yeah, it is summer in Antarctica now. Some places there reach 60 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer.

Hey folks, our area received several more inches of snow and the office/warehouse are still closed. More snow is predicted to arrive throughout the week.

Because our area is topographically challenging and this kind of winter activity does not commonly occur, inches of snow (and over a foot in some places!) presents a decent amount of challenges to the area. For Paizo, our employees commute from various points in the region (which means everyone's got varying levels of accumulation) and some of us by bus (which is impacted by entire route cancellations). The sheer amount of ice from overnight refreezing, and unfamiliar drivers with these conditions (or even familiar drivers) makes it remarkably hazardous to travel.

I've removed the datestamp from the thread, as conditions continue to be unpredictable. Again, we'll update this thread with more info as we have it.

I measured the snow on my deck last night, 9 inches! The downside of living on top of a hill is that its very difficult to get up or down when the roads are sheets of ice! I was able to make it home last night during a break in the weather after a long weekend vacation. Shortly after I made it home it started snowing again! School is closed as well today and we're about to head out for sledding soon. Thank you all for the well wishes!

My Deck is up to almost knee height. Its closer to a foot where I am. Its been a really long time since we have had this much snow up here.

They just need to be ready to update the February subscription thread dates when they get back rather than go crazy trying to catch up.

Perhaps I'm being selfish but perhaps consider moving your offices to a place that's better than Seattle.

Like literally anywhere?

Well, from where I'm sitting, even when the snow is this deep... "Better than Seattle" is pretty much nowhere. :-)

Well, except the Lost Coast of Northern California, perhaps. But shipping out of there would be even more complicated than Seattle.

It is hard to improve on a place that has really bad weather for only one week or so out of the year.

I can’t speak for everyone at Paizo, but the Puget Sound area is pretty great. This weather and it’s complications is pretty uncommon.


I agree with the Paizo employees I only wish I could move there but my job prevents it.

OK, so the off switch is broke...great...

EDIT: I just checked and there doesn't appear to be an off switch.

Who designed this thing?


Is this a joke? It’s +2 C there....this week it was -53 C here with 8 inches of snow in a few hours and nothing shut down

I think Paizo stole Ohio’s snow. We’re just getting lots of cold rain.

How steep are your hills Robert? And what kind of plow and salt truck resources does your local government have?

Nah. The only problem with "down" is stopping at the bottom. It's *up* that's difficult.

Take care, and enjoy the sledding. :-)
