Anyway, I was both teasing and curious about the weather where you are at.
When we get a foot of snow we still have school for our children – unless it comes just prior to the school bus runs. Then we have a 2 hour delay.
Part of the problem with traffic in Northern VA is that the great number of cars makes it difficult to operate school buses on time even in good weather. When it snows, many people start to drive worse than they usually do and that makes it even harder to maintain the bus schedules. Therefore, if there is a foot of snow around here, school systems close more out of a desire not to exacerbate the commuting patterns than because the buses are not capable of driving in snow.
