f...not having snow days

here at WVU theres freakin 6 inches of snow on the roads right now and i gurantee unless we get another foot between now and noon the university wont even think about cancelling even afternoon classes. There policy on snowdays sucks, what happened to the good old days of highschool around DC where if there was even a hint that snow might fall school gets cancelled for 3 days.

Re: f...not having snow days

On 2/14 when we got slammed our office closed early at 10:30, I couldn't believe it. I was pissed I had trudge through all that snow just to get to work and basically turn around and go home.

Re: f...not having snow days

It's the ice more than anything which determines how most cities handle the weather. Driving on snow isn't really dangerous, but driving on ice is almost impossible.

Pray for ice.

Above all the most dangerous thing is other drivers.

Re: f...not having snow days

Yup. I LOVE when it's icy outside that four wheel drive trucks think that just because they have four wheel drive, their cars are impervious to snow.

Re: f...not having snow days

The above is why I work from home when the weather is bad. I have a 55 mile commute (one way), and don't want to hassle with idiots who can't drive in inclement weather.

Re: f...not having snow days

I'm in friggin Madison, WI and they don't close until at least 10 homeless people (which is basically all the homeless people in Madison) freeze to death. We had about 18 inches of snow and they didn't close a lot of the schools. That's what I get for living in Madison.

those kids feel my pain, i hate it, i mean, i like the fact that i get to test out my 4x4 on my new truck all the time but having like 8 inches of snow and not closing baffles me coming from a place that would cancel school if the forecast called for snow the next day. gotta love fairfax county schools.

Those guys are such assholes. They are guys that honk at you and speed past in the left lane during a blizzard only to flip over half a mile later down the road.

Re: f...not having snow days

Noting that you guys are ragging on truck guys id like to point out that i understand the fact the 4 wheel drive doesnt matter in the ice and nor will it help if you drive like a jackass
