it would be funny if the storm doesn't hit just like a couple years ago when there was an early snow day announced but almost no snow

Every year, when we have a storm and get massive school closings, I wonder why the news media doesn't just print the names of the, say, 4 schools that are actually open instead of posting the names of the hundreds that are closed. It'd be much easier and more expedient.

Now this is why Michigan is the Winter Wonderland.........Southern MI seems to have gotten soft as the falling snow.

Wishful thinking Bob. But if that would keep the total down it works for me!

These common sense preemptive actions will probably mean that we'll get two inches and not twelve!

Hallelujah! Finally, more than 1 hour notice. Seriously - thank you, AAPS.
