Snow Day Tomorrow!
Mayor Quimby of Springfield declared "Snow Day" the "funnest day in history," but Mayor Bloomberg of New York shut down the schools for tomorrow. My college also shut down for the day tomorrow.
The local news and weather channels have been running around screaming like it's the Apocalypse. So far, it's cloudy and 40F degrees outside.
I think the Mayor made the right decision. The real blizzard isn't supposed to hit until the afternoon when the wee ones are getting out of school. There's lots of talk about "well, what if nothing happens like last time?" If we just get a dusting again, people will feel very silly. Better that than some kids in a weather related accident on the way home from school.
Well, maybe it will be a heavy snow after all. It's 10PM and the snow just started, a few hours earlier than expected.
WINTER STORM LATEST:
It's 9AM and we had about 3 inches in the last hour. Maybe this will be a big snow after all. The main event still has yet to arrive.
I plan to enjoy the little holiday, take a nap, and get some back work done.
