I was thinking something similar, mugs. I know I got a couple of inches yesterday and will likely get a few tomorrow, but if this is winter then I'd rather have a torch like we had several years back.

You guys said we would see a change for the better for Jan in Dece. not putting stock in what is being said for Feb, Scott maybe we should have done that bet, normally the winter season (this is not winter) would produce soon or not at all. You also know its a strange year when people are having outdoor garage sales in Jan lol, I kid you not.


Gotta love a Mars Attacks response

isn't it time we took down the winter image and put up cute chirping birds. 2 reasons. 1) Cause winter seems to have skipped us 2)Maybe it will reverse the curse?

yeah. Mars Attacks is a great movie!

I do like all the seasons. Something unique to appreciate. My Fav, besides a snowy winter, is autumn. Just getting cold. Smoke from fireplaces. Leaves turning color. Football, Thanksgiving, The Holidays approaching, and of course hope of a great winter!

I couldn’t agree more.

Summer my least favorite but it’s okay as long as the days over 90 doesn’t exceed 7 for the season.

31 years in the trenches of the business and WE DON'T MAKE THE CALL!! The district decision is based off of a number of factors but 1st and foremost safety. I have been off for the STORM OF THE CENTURY in 2001 that gave us 3" over 2 days, and the Blizzard in 2014 that produced 3" as well for us. They cancelled based off the Pro Mets forecast, NWS. I have been brought into school in a Winter Storm Warning with heavy snow falling in March of 2018, last year’s ice event in January 4th (30 plus kids had car accidents – I teach at a high school - besides over a dozen teachers). Some cases were not released early and had to drive home a few times because they missed the window to get the busses here on time for an early dismissal. Two such instances took me an hour for a 15-minute trip home in 3-4" of snow OTG and moderate windblown snowy conditions. I am not saying this to be a look at me but say we have events where it was the other way around as well.
The police, bus companies (especially) aid in the call by the Superintendent.
In the late 90’s ours was fired because he did not call school early and a bus slid off the road and kids were injured, nothing serious but bumps, bruises and a back and neck minor injury.
They have snow days for a reason built into the schedule.

Agree it is the Superintendent that makes the call.Back in the 1950's and early 60's in Fort Lee, the Superintendent only called for a day off if it was over 6 inches.Boy, did we kids hate that guy,LOL.The thing was, though, all the Public Schools were within walking distance which I did until Junior Year in High School when I got a car.Here in Monroe NY, the kids are all bussed so schools are closed for safety reasons.Districts up here cancelled today.Snow about to break out momentarily, so I think they made a good call today.

I go back before him, Mugsy, it was Lewis Cole.He certainly was a hardass when it came to snow days.I thought maybe he flipped his lid when we got a Monday AND a Tuesday off in the Dec.11-12 1960 snowstorm that have Fort Lee over 20 inches.

A friend and a member on this board who doesn’t post very much, texted me this image saying “Pretty much sums up our winter”.

I really couldn’t have said it better myself.

OMG, this is hysterical and really does sum up this winter. New Jersey, Southeast New York, and southern New England have taken the brunt of the non-winter season, why should it not continue?

I really think Frank should have the word winter turn into something else, just like we did in the past for Boston and for Kucher a. Why should people be allowed to type a word that doesn’t exist this year.

Maybe the word winter should be replaced with the phrase “a period in the distant past when cold and snow would occur for an extended period of time”

CP and I are trying our best Grselig, even going back to OTI and OOTI to try and change the karma of this misery."Oh, the humanity..."
We will try any and all methods, legal or otherwise to get a compensatory snowstorm before March ends.
