A new week with new opportunities is upon us, and we say so long and farewell to a truly disappointing January. Temps were unseasonably high for the month--insert jokes about alternative facts about climate change here--and Old Man Winter only produced a paltry 3.55 inches of snow at GSD Headquarters (so far).
But most schools in the County did have a snow day this past month, running our streak to two straight months with a snow day, which is a huge improvement from last year at this time.
And yes, there still is one more opportunity for snow in January. That opportunity will come on Tuesday, mostly during the afternoon, due to a clipper system emerging from the west. The potential for two or three inches of snow exists for some folks in Berkshire County, but it looks like it will be much too early to impact the start of school on Wednesday.
It's certainly within the realm of possibility that games/performances/meetings could be cancelled or postponed Tuesday night due to the light snow. We'll have more about this minor storm tomorrow and Tuesday.
Our next possibility for snow could be Sunday/Monday (Super Bowl Sunday). We will not rehash our long-standing opinion that the day after the Super Bowl should be a national holiday--how hard would it be to move Presidents' Day to that day?--but perhaps Old Man Winter will take care of us this year.
We've got our eye on it so you don't have to.
