I think this is a great point that was made.  If the roads are truly to dangerous to drive to mass then that should apply to stores, eateries and work.  I always find it funny the train of thought (no one here has made this claim) that says the roads are to dangerous to go to mass so I can miss mass "but" I have to get to work so I will drive these same roads to make sure I don't miss work.  If you are willing to drive to work or other places on these roads or would be willing if it was a work day, then someone obviously doesn't consider the roads to be that "dangerous."
