    Well, I would always watch the news (even as a kid, morning news is cool) in the morning just before I get reasy for school and they would either list off the schools that were closed for the day or just annouce that we had a Snow Day, no school.

    I would then smile and cut on my NES or Genesis grab a bowl of cereal and play games most of morning, watch some tv, then go outside with my lil sister and some cousins to play out in the snow. We had a huge yard so we built snow men, played tackle football (falling in the snow was always fun) and made snow forts and tunnels (when we got a good storm).

    One time in H.S. though, we got one of the worst snow storms and they didn't annouce school closing until I got to school. I drove in that mess only to find out I didn't even have to get up! I was cool though, there was only a few of us in the classes, so could do anything (as long as it didn't cause trouble) and we got to leave early.

    Radio and tv let us know if school was called off, but I swear to God we had thje Superintendent from hell. He NEVER called school off no matter how much snow.

    When I got into High School they only called Snow Days if the other schools were having Snow Days. Never mind that a lot of our students that come in by bus live on country roads or up hills that are covered in ice.

    My Mom was a teacher at the school, so she would get a call from one of the other teachers telling her that school was closed. I'm from Wellsville, NY and we got quite a few snow days. Now that I live in Buffalo the schools close quite a lot.

    I loved snow days. I remember back in '96there we had a blizzard here in the DC area school was out for like a week. I did everything I could think of in the snow. After that it was a two day closing at most. I remember sleeping in than putting some cartoon than heading out for hours since my parents were at work. I always wished I didn't have to work on snow days but reality sucks.

    I remember I always had the worst luck when it came to snow days and back then it seemed as no force on Heaven or Earth could bring my schools to a close and nothing short of the next ice age would give us the day off. But I guess it just made those snow days ever so much sweeter.

    Most of the time dad would just let me sleep in. But on occasion, he'd wake me up in that funny tone, letting me know that I had the day off.

    Now that I'm older, I do admit it is a pain shoveling the snow. But honestly I don't mind it and if you knew what classes I have to take, you'd see why.

    Snow day were great. We would be out snow ball fighting and sleding all day. What I hated was when it was time for your fingers and toes to thaw out.

    I was raised in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, where we got a helluva lot of snow in the winter. However, we had few snow days. Since heavy snowfall was so common, our municipalities had to be well-prepared. If it snowed overnight, our huge graders would have the roads cleared well before morning. So, the timing of the snowfall had to be just right. But we also had "cold" days--if it was -20F or colder, school would be cancelled.
