Let it Snow: How Much Snow Does it take to Cancel School

CiuVwRqRedditor atrubetskoy created this map to help demonstrate how much snow is required before school gets cancelled in different parts of the country. I found this to be very disheartening. Look how much of it is green. That means any snow and school is cancelled. How sad is that?

I have gone to school with better than two feet of snow on the ground and half the country gets out for less than an inch? That’s an outrage. I remember when I lived in Texas it snowed once. People lost their minds, it amazed and horrified me to see how trouble a quarter-inch of snow could cause. People refuse to go to work, city buildings and schools closed, a third of the people on the road crashed their cars and yet this same area went through a hurricane and a flood in that same year and didn’t have half the problems as they did with the snow.

I remember when my school would call snow days, it was only if the snow was falling and the wind was blowing. One year the superintendent embarrassed himself by calling a snow day and then the weather turned nice. We never had a snow day again… I don’t blame him, I blame the weather reporting and how bad it sucks.
