No school anywhere in the area - even NYC public schools.
Would have been nice of the new mayor to make the call for closure before 4:45 AM.
Some teachers have to make a decision on whether to try and get in to work by that time of the morning.
Alas, the NYC public school system is the largest child care center in the world, so I get why they wait until the latest possible time to call school.
At 6:50 AM, the temperature was 11 degrees - with wind chill, it was -5.
4-9 inches of snow around the area, but the problem is now the wind and arctic temperatures that will keep that snow frozen and ice packed all day.
No way to make kids come to school in that safely.
I don't think even Bloomberg could have kept the schools opened under those conditions.
