Also, you'd think that some of these "gifted and talented" schools would be plenty used to "snowflakes" by now.

At best the roads were wet. When did they start closing school based on what a meteorologist says as opposed to actually looking outside and seeing what really happened.

these are all religious schools, it's probably all the better that these students are spared one day of the indoctrination.

"these are all religious schools." Pray tell [pun intended] what/which religion/s is/are affiliated with East Arbor Academy and Arbor Prep High School?

Maybe today the road commission will actually WORK an eight hour day.

Oh ye of little faith in snow removal!

I knew we would not get this snow what with the warm weather we have had. Plus with a lot of schools out on mid winter break it makes it easier to get the roads cleaned up.

It's more like the public school districts are on winter break this week anyway. These schools were in session. Given that there have been no snow days this year to date (and today's a Friday), why not?

"dump 3 to 5 inches of snow on the area" I resent the use of the word "dump" in connection to 3-5 inches of snow. How about we save 'dump" for something closer to double digits like 9-12 inches.

Lol, for real?
