Snow days

Growing up in Seattle I do not recall ever having more than two snow days in a row. After that, it would always rain and the snow would go away.

In Ann Arbor, one of the few really butch aspects of the University of Michgian is its refusal to close no matter how much snow comes down, on the theory that most all of the students, and many of the faculty, live within walking distance of campus. I think we've had one "snow day" in the six years I've been here, and as I recall that was more about bitter cold than it was about snow.

Once, during my one high school year in Washington State, less than an inch of snow led to four consecutive snow days.
