Folks in the north are experiencing above average amounts of snowfall. For this reason, many schools are closed.
Here, in Georgia where I live, the schools are also closed. But we have no snow.
"Mom," my son said when he came home yesterday. "Tomorrow is a snow day!"
I looked outside where the sun was shining brightly. I looked at the thermometer. 47 degrees Fahrenheit. "Are you sure about that?"
"Yeah! We're going to get snow!"
Fast forward to today. When we woke up, the thermometer read 43 degrees. Not cold enough to snow. Sure, it was raining, but this stuff wasn't going to freeze.
It's a little colder right now, but the sun is shining. For the life of me, I can't understand why they closed the schools. And the government offices. Ridiculous!
Let's hope it doesn't snow on Superbowl Sunday. Atlanta is hosting it. We're going to be in trouble if a few flakes fall. It'll be the first time ever that the Superbowl is cancelled!
they never close schools here, not during blizzards, not during ice, not during fire and hell :)ReplyDelete
They rarely ever did in Cleveland, Ohio where I'm from. This is a very strange thing!Delete
I've heard of this snow day thing, but I've never experienced one. We don't even have it in our vocabulary. It doesn't snow here.ReplyDelete
I'm sure if a flake fell, you'd have a snow day. :)Delete
As someone who grew up without snow, it's strange to think of a school having a snow day when there's no chance of that happening. (Schools are more likely to take days off for too much heat here, haha.)ReplyDelete
You must live in Florida. When I lived there, I think it snowed a grand total of three times.Delete
They close schools here when the snow arrives but not before as our weather forecasters are forever getting it wrong. W do have snow forecast for tomorrow but will wait and see.ReplyDelete
That makes more sense. I guess they like to plan ahead here.Delete
That would be bad to see it Sunday.ReplyDelete
Fortunately, we didn't have any, and the Superbowl went off without a hitch.Delete
haha sometimes they just get all scared and cancel and it is nice. Other times they don't and then it is crap. Can't win.ReplyDelete
They seem to err on the side of caution. The year we first moved here, it was a catastrophe when two inches of snow fell. It crippled the entire city.Delete
Snowless snow day? Somebody somewhere was "getting snowed" ;)ReplyDelete
They were getting plenty of snow up north!Delete
Snow day! How beautiful... Here in India where we live it doesn't snow. Good post:)ReplyDelete
The kids in India would love a snow day, I'm sure!Delete
That's really odd. Here, they close schools if snow is even forecast sometimes. Today was a snow day here as well.It snowed a little during the night, but definitely not a big storm. We're expecting very cold air tonight so I think school might close because of it tomorrow.ReplyDelete
I hope your son enjoyed his day off. I'm guessing the kids attending the schools that were closed are fine with this. =)ReplyDelete
They certainly were!Delete
We have had a snow day today. It's grey and miserable and the cats and dogs have ruined the pristine layer of white stuff!ReplyDelete
Ewww. That's kind of ugly. Snow can be pretty when it's not dirty, though!Delete
Kids much be having a blast enjoying their days off!ReplyDelete
That they do!Delete
Snow days in the South, you gotta love 'em.ReplyDelete
It's truly baffling!ReplyDelete
That is weird, they would close and you have no snow?? Takes a lot of snow, for us to close down anything! LOL!ReplyDelete
We have snow days a lot here in CT (well regularly in the winter). Sometimes officials get caught up in the hype and schools are closed when the snow doesn't end up coming. Usually we have delays or early dismissals though- which keeps no snow snow days from happening often. :)ReplyDelete
