Vacation Week for the public schools, so the GSD Staff has been taking it easy this week. But for all you private school followers, here's the latest:
The timing of this storm is just about spot-on perfect for a snow day. Look for the snow to begin around 5 am in the Berkshires. While the warm temperatures of late indicate that this event will change over to rain by late morning, we still think we'll get around 3" in the Northern Berkshires. Moderate to heavy bands of snow could make for a very dicey commute but the roads should be fine by the end of the day. So, if a head of school is feeling generous, she might pull the trigger for the three-day weekend. If she wants to stay consistent with previous decisions on these low snow-total storms, she could easily justify having school. A delay would make sense because it's likely the snow will have turned to rain by about 11 am.
It will be nice to see some snow, as it is February after all. Look for another few inches on Friday night.
