South Virginia is funny.
Last Thursday school was cancelled. Not because it snowed. Nope. It was cancelled because there was a strong chance that it was going to snow.
It didn't snow.
It is hard for me to understand. I grew up in western NY. Ten inches of snow didn't even slow us down. It just meant we had to go outside sooner (to shovel).
I guess, if I look at it from the city's point of view, it is easier to shut the place down than to rely on your snow removal equipment. Ten guys with shovels, a pick up truck and a bag of rock salt doesn't remove a lot of snow fast.
