What gets me is MY school never cancels, but my kids school ALWAYS does.

Not looking forward to this -- I wish it would hold off until after finals. :(

That is an average stowstorm for us!

3-6 inches may delay/early dismiss or cancel school, cancel some rec activites, but most of us still have a normal day of work.
