My company distributes each employee's paid time off (PTO) by distributing a certain number of hours of per half-month pay period. The hours accumulate in a bank that the employee can tap into at any time. Salaried employees can spend it in half-day increments, making it a straightforward arithmetic problem to see how much time off one has available.
There is, of course, a catch: At some point, you hit your maximum number of PTO hours, and it stops accruing. I will be at that point on the 31st of this month.
So, today, I'm taking a day off, and will use it to perform necessary research for the Brews & Choos Project.
There is, of course, a catch:
Yeah. That crap is slowly moving northeast and looks likely to hit Chicago in a couple of hours.
Well, I'll be on trains for a while, and the places I'm visiting are pretty close to the stations. And I can always adjust the plan on the fly. But it does look like I'll get a bit of snow.
Anyway, look for a couple of Brews & Choos entries this weekend.
