What rotten luck...

Postby da1chipo » Sun Feb 12, 2006 3:06 pm

Well, here I am in the NYC area, and we're having potentially the biggest snowstorm in NYC history...and I might not even get a snow day.

What crap timing.

To think, with good timing I could have TWO snow days. Now I won't even get one.

Ok, my rant is over.

The last time i got a snow day was i sixth-grade. That was 1997. Here in Minnesota it will take some poor little kid getting killed on the way to school after a storm before they ever cancel school again (which would be to late for me). :-t

I have a feeling NYC schools will shut tomorrow. I remember the blizzard of 96 that came on a Sunday and NYC shut down schools for two days.

My girlfriend is a teacher in NYC and I keep telling her not to worry she will be off. I guess we shall see.

I'm going to have to work tomorrow regardless, (I'm on LI) so I have no sympathy for anyone.

Pennsylvania has snow days like it's nobody's business. If a mom somewhere just smells snow, it triggers a chain reaction as every school district closes down, county by county, and all of the remaining bread and milk in the supermarket is bought in a frenzy of fear. I'm serious, someone smells snow; good luck getting bread or milk.

PA doesn't hesitate to close schools for a week at a time due to irrational exhuberance and parental outrage. In all fairness, most PA bus drivers are either alcoholics or Bibleholics, both of which should remain off the roads during weather of any inclement.

Common scenario: someone (and generally not a meteorolgist) predicts that we will get "up to 12 inches" of snow. Schools across the state close down and rejoicing children everywhere wake up to clear skies and not a speck of white on the ground.

Additionally, a correct prediction of snow can be predicted using the following forumula:

Predicted Number of Inches of Snow - 5 = Actual snow fall. All predictions of 5 inches or less can be considered "truthiness" at best.

I remember a few years ago here we had school off for two days and it didn't snow at all.

Well, if I heard correctly: largest snowstorm ever in NYC.

And more importantly, no snow day. :-C :-C :-C :-C

Boston's schools are closed tomorrow, but I'm about 35 miles north of there and they haven't cancelled school yet. :-P

Damnit I really want a snow day. :,-(
