post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I just checked weather.com and It said that on Sunday January 6, there will be snow for the northern east coast....that means the next day, the 7th means there will be no school and we can watch the keynote

that would be soo,soo, soo, awesome


any comments? :cool:

If the roads are too bad to drive on and I can't get to the Apple Store to see the keynote I'm holding you personally responsible

Seriously, I don't want to watch it on a stream. Thats why I was going to watch it on my LOOONG lunch break.
Oh well, guess if roads are bad I could call out of work and take the train to NYC and see it at the Apple Marketcenter.

I'm still holding you personally responsible! <img src="graemlins/bugeye.gif" border="0" alt="[Skeptical]" />

Yeah! snow and ice all Sunday night and into Monday! That is just screaming SNOW DAY! also weather.com / weather channel (unlike our local TV stations) is more conservative in their predictions. Even if there is a delay I can convince my parents just to let me stay home.

I love New England weather.

A white MWSF would be a lot better than a white Christmas.

Not to burst your bubble, but ever heard of snow plows and salt trucks? Unless they're predicting a blizzard, I don't see how they would already be predicting the shut-down of schools and businesses. Round these parts, they wait until the snow is actually falling to predict that sort of thing. But yes, it would be cool if your prediction panned out.

Yeah but in most parts of the country people are snow wussies Moogs. They won't leave their houses if they might get a snowflake on their shoes. Crying shame it is, they let some snow stop their cities. I'm sure it will be on the news though since it is "breaking" news.

Snow wussies in New England? I thought the snow wussy line started at Washington DC and went south?

Nah, I'd say it starts around the Hudson River. I've lived in lower NY, many parts of NJ (too many sadly) and PA. All of these places have closed school for as little as 3-4 inches of snow. I know its dumb.

I remember one time when I was a little kid living in Philly we had a thin sheet of ice on the sidewalks. All Schools closed. By 11am it was all melted and the sun even came out. It was a beautiful day off!! haha

Wow. That's truly surprising. Please tell me the snow wussy syndrome doesn't extend all the way to places like Pittsburgh and Philly. That would dramatically alter my world-view.

My school is Catholic when the public schools have off; private when the Catholic schools have off; and public when the private schools have off. In other words, I will have school no matter what
Oh well...

When I lived in Queens and went to a NYC school they never closed. Up here in Rockland County they close much more often for snow.

I lived in Ithaca for 5 years. I can confirm that NJ is a bunch of snow wussies. We walked to class under blizzard conditions and the professor beat us to class. And we liked by gone it! Now the threat of snow literally closes businesses down here.

I got to a Catholic high school and they close all the time, mostly because students come from about 72 different towns and cities. And anyone who lives in MA knows that the weather north of the Mass Pike or Boston is a hell of a lot different than to the south. So if its snow or icy anywhere in the eastern part of the stare its basically a day off.
