With the 2 hour delay my older kids will start school at 11 instead of 9. Preschool is from 9-12. Which only leaves an hour.

History shows that the area got burned before by not being prepared. So, thats the breaks!

What is so mind boggling??
Roads and parking lots were icy.
I witnessed it first hand.

Glad our kids were not on the roads.

I called my daughter's daycare this morning to see if they were running on a normal schedule and the assitant director laughed and said, "yeah, we don't close for rain". These proactive delays and closings before the first flake has hit are getting a bit ridiculous. Any snow was suposed to be over by like 4 am, so why not just make the call then?

Some of the preschools follow the county school schedules and set a delay as well. Many of the teachers will also have kids in schools and won't be able to get in early if their kids are delayed.

Does NC not salt the roads when these "storms" are expected?

I didn't see the reason for any delays, got up early and was on the roads before the sun, no ice, no problems. I agree the system over reacted.

ok,here we go.(last post mod,I promise)Because you saw a spot of ice is irrelevant,and in no way an indication of the roads.Nothing happened,last night,we woke up to bright sunshine.Shutting down schools and businesses is not a responsible thing to do,it is irresponsible,and weighs on the system.Is a;ll common sense lost,that people can't use their discretion?These panic knee jerk reactions help no one.I think the DOT should help free our roadways of litter,as ernestly as they prepare for a non event.
