Don't be ridiculous, that would make too much sense.

It started snowing again around 2 p.m and we had to leave and I didn't want to, because I wanted to enjoy the snow. By the time we got back, it was over. Now that it's over and Spring is coming, I can say this is the best winter we have had for awhile. The last time it snowed in our area of 89084 was around late 2008, the blizzard at Aliante casino, back when it was Aliante Station and you could actually win there. The temperatures for long stretches in the 40's and 50's, made it finally feel like winter. Because our winter usually consists of low to mid 60's with a couple of 50 degree days thrown in for good measure. Bah humbug to anyone that hates snow.

If I could stay home and not have to drive in it every day, my opinion would change. The people here have no idea how to drive in the snow.

I was just out, and the streets have all cleared up. No reason for a snow day today.

So CCSD has had as many snow days as Denver Public Schools has had this winter season. The one day they did close in Denver was 4-6 inches of snow that were still falling at 5am and temperatures in the single digits. Can only imagine what excuse CCSD was thinking for a snow day.

From someone who was in town from Boston last week, I did get a little chuckle out of "the snow." I realize it's rare to happen out here and I don't blame folks for being excited. No disrespect - I know I wouldn't be able to handle your summer heat. I watched the local news and there was a story about the two plows that Nevada DOT had in LV and the reporter was so excited to talk about them.

As for school closings, I understand that Clark County encompasses a huge area and some parts probably should have cancelled. Here in New England, schools are town/city based and my town might cancel but the one next door may not. It's all up to the local district.

IIRC, dropping temps and black ice was predicted for Friday. In my town, the decision to cancel often comes around 5 AM and the reverse 411 calls begin alerting parents to start scrambling.

it is the same with rain...when it rains, the roads become very slippery due to the oil residue from the cars...the water also has nowhere to go... so its not the same as Boston or Cleveland, etc
