It's snowing, the wind is howling, and the roads are icy. Of course, this could be the picture-perfect snow day—if only you had food in your fridge. All that's stopping you from a steaming-hot pizza is a few quick swipes on Grubhub and, poof, pizza and wings suddenly appear at your doorstep. You're paying for the delivery, so the weather conditions shouldn't matter. But some say if the weather is nasty, you shouldn't ask delivery people to venture out in the miserable conditions because you're lazy. What do you think?

Sure, maybe ordering food during a storm isn't the nicest thing to do, but if delivery people and restaurant employees are working, you're helping them out by giving them business.

If a storm gets bad enough, cities will order all nonessential vehicles off the roads. If your snowstorm isn't that severe, you should not hesitate to grab your phone and order your grub. Make sure to leave your delivery person a generous tip and enjoy your hot food!

In 2019, Winter Storm Jayden brought record-breaking temperatures to the United States. Chicago was colder than Siberia. Even if the ice isn't stopping delivery people from being on the roads, you should think twice before sending them out in that kind of weather.

Whether they're coming to you by bike, by car or by train, it only takes 30 minutes for frostbite to affect exposed skin when the windchill is 18 degrees below zero, and only five minutes when the windchill reaches 50 degrees below zero. No meal is worth that—scrounge up what you have in your house and be decent to the other humans who don't want to go out in the cold.

But most agree that as long as you tip well, you should still order your food. Everyone needs to make a living, and by ordering food, you're giving restaurants business they need—particularly on days that are likely to be slow.

Others have no patience for it. If you didn't think ahead to stock up on groceries, it's your own fault. Don't make other people suffer because of your lack of preparation.
