Go Away, Snow God

National Weather Service has 8-12 inches total accumulation, plunging temperatures, with a Winter Storm Advisory in effect until 6 AM tomorrow.

Mayor says school is open tomorrow unless something changes to make it otherwise.

Snowing hard now, but the early start to the storm probably means it's out of here earlier too.

Students are all talking like it is a snow day tomorrow, but it doesn't look like it's going to be one.

Here's hoping if school is on tomorrow, that students show up.

There's still some work to do before next week's Regents exams.

Here's also hoping that the snow god goes way for two weeks after this.

There is now some talk on the weather boards about two additional snow events in the coming days, one on Saturday and one on Monday.

That would be disastrous for students in Regents classes and teachers teaching those classes.

ELA Regents tutoring is Saturday and the exam is Monday.

We need it to be nice and precipitation-less both of those days

  1. Wind chill will be up to 10 degrees below zero from 6-10 AM tomorrow...making for a slippery commute-but if I had to bet on it, I'd say schools will be open.

  3. How can alternate side be suspended and the schools still be open?

    Dumb question in this city of cities.

    1. Child care for $1 million children. Unless conditions are completely prohibitive, they're going to look to keep it open.

    2. Oops - scratch the dollar sign before 1 million children!

  4. Ill get there, since Im not far away by car or train. But to come in from the burbs...? No way..Gov. Cuomo declared a State Of Emergency for all 5 counties here...I'd call school if in fact, the windchill is 10 or more below zero, and the state of emergency. Bad mechanical things begin to happen when it gets that cold. Not good for mass or private safety.
