    So we have gotten 12.1 inches of snow and are expected to get 5 to 10 more and they still have not closed the local schools here. I also heard that the Vegas airport is closed due to them recieving 4 inches of snow, while our aiport is open at this time.

    I think they figure we are used to it here so the school children should just tough it out! We have areas around here that recieved 22 inches and they are only two hours late tomorrow. My issue is with high school kids who drive but don't know how to drive in the snow that well yet.
    Did you get hit with the ice storm bad, where you are at?

    We missed out on the ice but might freeze up again over night. It's about 36 currently. We have a lot of areas that are not thawing out yet.

    More expected to hit on Saturday.

    Hey, teacher here and break was supposed to begin tomorrow at 11 am. Looks like it's coming early!

    Tuesday afternoon we had heavy snow for the afternoon/evening rush hours. It took me over an hour and a half to get home, normally a half hour drive. As of yesterday morning, seemed today was going to be a repeat, but last night the amounts expected changed and it went from a watch to a warning. As of now, 6-9" are expected, along with freezing rain and sleet.

    Christmas program was to be tonight at 7, running about an hour and a half. That would be a nightmare as the storm is to hit in late afternoon. I think it and the half day tomorrow are going to be cancelled! Yee haw!

    They declared a state of emergency here and it was unlawful to drive on the roads, we have an area called the south hill which is above the downtown area and you had to have chains to go up there, this is within city limits. With this they still have not cancelled school!
    Before today it was 3 degrees with wind chill making it conditions of 10 below 0 whatever that means, just say it was bone chilling cold.And they said we would have a mild winter since we had a terrible one last year.

    I thought this was a sex thread and came here to report it, ohh you just got snow? Suck it up and deal, global warming will be along to melt it all way soon enough.
