    I have been in Georgia since 2003. We have had a weekend snow once, and an ice storm once on the weekend. Other than that nada where the white stuff is concerned. Now it is snowing to beat the band. Everything is covered. I have my fingers crossed for a snow day. Or at least a delay. I have been sick all weekend with a virus. I could really use a snow day.

    Ours is gone here in AL. It was gone around 1:30ish. I just wonder if all the wet is going to freeze up tonight when the temp drops or if the wet will dry up before then.

    I am originally from Kentucky so that is the one thing that I do miss here in Georgia. Snow Days!! It's still coming down heavy at this point and temperatures are supposed to drop again. So if that's the case then it will turn into ice (fingers crossed). I know it's bad but I have really, really felt bad this weekend and don't want to have to get together sub plans and don't want to be at school only feeling about 50%.

    I live in the West and we are having temps of the 50's. We should be getting snow still. We have only had 1 snow day in the last 15 years. I grew up in MO and loved when we got snow days. Hoping you get one:)

    It's still snowing here... all of the counties around us have already canceled and so has the county government for tomorrow. HOPEFULLY, they will post our county soon. You can't see the roads here in the subdivision. I am still holding out hope.

    It's snowing here in VA...I'm praying for a snow day!! However, Tuesday starts state testing (5th grade takes the Writing test earlier than the other tests.) And I feel like we'll be jumping into it Tues. am if we have off tomorrow. So I guess I'm kinda mixed on the issue...

    Ditto! But it looks like we are also going to get an unwanted snow day! Dang it! We've already lost Memorial Day (it's our make up day for the last one we missed!)!

    Same here Melissa--all the counties surrounding me are canceled and nothing from mine yet. ACK! It is so painful waiting!
    And it is still snowing like crazy here. I can't imagine we will be open tomorrow, but I want to here it officially!

    I heard your county took Memorial Day. Some people were angry! We already made up both our days (one in January and they took President's Day for the other).
    It stopped sleeting here. Are you getting anything now?

    Yeah, we're getting some snow now. We couldn't take President's day because we didn't originally have it off! Our calendar sucks! :lol:

    I can't imagine our calendar is much better. I am pulling my hair out. We are on a stretch beginning the Friday after MLK day through March 30th of NO BREAKS :eek: The entire 3rd marking period is a series of 9 5-day weeks. I am sure yours is similar. I am going to strangle some kids soon, LOL.

    Is your spring break the week before Easter? Ours is. Which means I have to take the day after Easter off because I refuse to fly home and miss Easter with my family.

    Oh, I am dying right now with the no breaks until Spring Break. Ours is after Easter-so far away! I hear ya on the strangling kids. Don't they (the people who do the calendar) realize that the kids need a break too? Geez! We're all dying here! I'm taking a couple of mental health days in a couple weeks-I just have to! :dizzy:

    Well- it is here. My deck is covered already.

    I just hope they call it before I go to bed. I'd rather not get a 4:30 AM Connect-Ed call!

    YES!!!! They just officially called it. No school tomorrow. That means I will only be in the classroom 3 days this week since I have a meeting on Thursday :)

    Ours never gets canceled the night before. We only have 1 inch coming in. On that hand, I think we should be going to school. On the other hand we are a state school and most counties have significant snow in the forecast and we have kids busing in from those areas. Hmm....It'll be interesting to see what happens. I need a study day. I am behind.

    ScienceTeach,

    They actually cancelled. You got lucky. They must have done it this morning when they realized that they couldn't run the buses due to the ice. I was lucky enough that ours cancelled last night.
