Frankenstorm Lurks...

Oh what a difference a few days make. If you buy all the hype--and the GSD Staff realistically thinks there's reason to do so--then we might as well shut 'er down for the beginning of next week. As they say on t.v., this is gonna be huge.

Break out the old Grease VCR tape and get out Bruce Springsteen's Greetings from Asbury Park, because Sandy is coming back into your life with a vengeance. The meteorology media machine is running at full throttle at the moment, generating the kind of weather hysteria we've all come to know and love in the 21st century.

To keep it simple, just about anything could happen with this storm, including heavy mountain snow. Here's a tidbit from our friends at the Weather Channel:
NOAA's [forecaster Jim] Cisco said he could see the equivalent of several inches of snow or rain in the mid-Atlantic, depending on where the storm ends up. In the mountains, snow may be measured in feet instead of inches.
It's much too early to come to any kind of conclusion about what's really going to happen next week, but we'll certainly process the onslaught of information and get the word out as soon as we at the home office can give you something definitive.

Keep your guard up--we know these early storms and "Storms of the Century" are often overblown (!)--but if one of the predicted storm tracks turns out right, we could see several days of no school.

Keep the faith!
