If you live in, or are familiar with the weather patterns and winter storms in the Northeast, then you know this is a question asked often between November and April. Today is one of those days - as the temperatures drop and the snow accumulation predictions increase, so does the buzz and excitement. Some run to the store to stock up "just in case" and others ignore the warnings because if the wind shifts or you aren't in the "belt" ~ you may not receive a single snow flake.
One thing we are all experiencing together is the "arctic chill", whether we get the snow or not. This morning we entered school slushing through puddles created from melting snow and rain. Eight hours later, we were greeted by ice and multiple people fell between the building and reaching their cars due to the thick and slick ice. Thankfully no one was severely injured that I'm aware of - bruised spirits but not bones, so this is good.
Do you live where the winter weather is a lunch room discussion or possibly even a debate? Some believe there will be a "snow day" tomorrow, while others believe it will blow past us and we'll be in school. It all depends on which way the wind blows and how Ol' Man Winter decides to shake things up.
I know this weather is affecting a good portion of the United States, so if you are in the belt of this winter storm - let's have some fun and do a poll. Will there be school and business closings tomorrow are will this too pass? This could be fun...
What is your favorite "snow day" memory?
