    You wrote a diary just yesterday explaining why elected officials keep schools open.  It's a valid reason - because many poor children only get a hot meal at school.

    But at some point the safety and well being of everyone that is needed for open schools - teachers, administrators, staff, and oh yeah, the kids themselves - takes priority over a missed meal.  Sorry, it just does.

    And maybe the storm itself is unpredictable, but total snowfall can be.  It's not a regular occurrence, but I definitely remember times growing up where we get school off in advance of a storm and then we get like 1 inch.  And my town is 1.1 square miles, so we don't even have buses.
