In the meantime, enjoy this handy reference guide to snow days:
Standard Snow Day: You knew it was coming, and it came!
Over-hype Call: There was supposed to be a storm. They panic and call it. Then there's barely any snow.
The Perfect Storm: A huge storm is forecast. You get the call that school will be canceled tomorrow. And it's Thursday night. (Yay THREE day weekends!)
The Double Whammy: Same as The Perfect Storm but with more than one snow day in a row.
The Surprise Party: You had no idea there was any chance of a snow day. You wake up in the morning to a surprise call and get as excited as a kid at Christmas!
The Fun Snow Day: School is canceled due to freezing rain... which melts by the time you wake up!
The Too Cool for School: It's twenty below and too cold to wait outside for the school bus. Or start your car.
The Heart-breaker: A two hour delay instead of a snow day.
The Tormentor: A standard snow day, but your power is out. And the roads are too bad to go anywhere. You're cold, you're bored, and you wish you were at school after all.
The Missed Memo: You get to school, only to find out that the doors are locked and school was canceled while you were on your way.
The Hostage Situation: It's the Missed Memo, plus you get stuck at school because Mom and Dad dropped you off before you realized. And now the teachers are stuck because the kids can't be left at school alone...
The Over-hype: Everyone thought it was going to be the Snowpocalypse, and instead it's just overcast.
The Stubborn No-call: The weather is bad enough, but they won't call it because the last snow day was a mistake (see Over-hype Call) OR they've already called too many snow days.
The Odd Man Out: Every other district EXCEPT YOURS has called a snow day.
The Toughman Contest: There's an escalating war between superintendents to see who can tough it out the longest.
