HQwinterEach month, we share an image from GEICO’s past and invite you to exercise your caption-writing skills.

I’m not sure when this photo was taken, but it was on a day much like this one. I’m writing this post on a snowy, icy morning when many D.C.-area businesses closed or delayed opening, but not GEICO.

We take seriously our pledge to be available for our customers around the clock, every day of the year. It takes a LOT more snow and ice than what’s in this photo, or on the ground outside our headquarters today, before we consider closing the office. I could count on one finger the number of times we’ve closed in my nearly 30 years here.

Sure, I grumble about it when I have to get out of my nice, warm bed, clean off my car and get to work while my neighbors sleep in, but you know what? I’m actually kind of proud that my company doesn’t let an inch or two of snow – or six or seven – paralyze it like so many organizations do.

I think it says something good about GEICO. What do you think?
