So, what would you do with an extra day off as part of this holiday weekend? It looks like--once again--things are trending in favor of a snow day. If GSD followers were at the craps table, they'd be checking the dice to see if they were loaded. Papa's getting a new pair of shoes!
The latest: snow begins after 4 am, it snows all day giving us 4-7 inches, and then ice kicks in between 3 and 4 pm. The earlier start is better for a snow day; the later-ness of the ice means we could make it through the day and then all after school activities would be cancelled. Still, the early snow start will weigh more heavily on the mind of the Super.
Given this latest forecast, we're moving the chance up to 85% on the basis of the earlier start to the storm and we're backing down on our call for an early release. The snow will start by 7 am at the latest so there's no sense in releasing the hounds early. GSD is not convinced the snow will start by 4 am, but if it does...your money's in the bank!
We're going to pay in June, but don't forget that the 21st century is officially "the Age of Instant Gratification" -- acronym "AIG."
