Nova Zembla--not a popular vacation destination.
Here's how it could happen: Diesel fuel does not do well in crazy low temperatures. We're not entirely sure of the tipping point, but diesel fuel can solidify in very cold weather. The modern technology of school buses is pretty amazing, but engineers are yet to figure out how to power engines on chunks of fuel. We at GSD aren't even sure if the district's buses are diesel-fueled, but if they are, there's an outside chance that the cold fuel will seize up the engines.
We're not going to put it in the Confidence Meter because the chance is very remote, but we thought we'd at least throw it out there to our loyal followers.
As for Wednesday, there are more signs the storm could be creeping southward, which is not what we want. Work your magic, GSD devotees, and will this storm to take that coveted coastal track. Until we meet again...
