A snow day literally and figuratively falls from the sky, unbidden, and seems like a thing of wonder. -- Susan Orlean

Good Things Come in Threes

Happy Weekend, flake followers. We hope you enjoyed yesterday's light, fluffy, delay-inducing snow. The mini storm eluded are accurate prognostication (okay, fine, we missed it), but better to miss it the good way than the bad way. Now that would have been embarrassing.

This is all to say that we're giving you fair warning for a possible delay event for Monday. We could see an unprecedented third two-hour delay in a row for most Berkshire County schools. The current models are forecasting a light snow event--1 to 3 inches--but once again the time looks delightful. If the timing is right on the button as it was on Friday, we could see several delays. The other factor that road crews will have to contend with is the possibility of sleet mixing in.

Could it be? Another delay? (Thanks, Accuweather.)
The timing for this storm could change, which will greatly change our chances for a delay. Right now we're going to set the True North Confidence Meter at 25%. Check in throughout the weekend for updates. Unfortunately, though, we still see no major storms in the runs of the long-range forecast models. Alas.
