We're getting it starting tonight, going into tomorrow. 20-30 centimetres expected in Northern New Brunswick. I work in an elementary school, so it's going to be a paid day off... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/dancingbanana.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":nana:">

Ohio may get 20 inches by the day's end. It took me almost two hours to drive 19 miles home yesterday, three hours to dig my driveway and parking spot out so I could put my car in it, and another hour to dig myself out this morning.<br><br><br><br>
I'm so glad I live a mile and a half from my workplace. No way in heck am I venturing out to any of the areas I cover today. All are at least 15 miles away, and the main roads have barely been plowed. I'll be making a lot of phone calls today. Today would be a good day to have a snowmobile.

We got two snow days! Everything at my university has been canceled. They had to house the food service and maintenance workers in the student union last night because we're in a level 3 emergency and it's against the law to go on the roads.<br><br><br><br>
I would hate this if I were at home and had to drive/shovel/walk the dog, but it's pretty nice here since I don't have to do anything. I can just admire the beautiful landscape outside.

Thanks. I think every single school and most colleges in northeastern Ohio are closed today. Non-essential retailers and other offices are telling people to stay home. Some counties are on a Level 3 alert, meaning if you're out driving without a dang good reason (you're a nurse and have to get to work, etc) you can be arrested. Other counties are on Level 2, meaning it's up to you if you drive but be extremly careful and don't go out unless it's important.

Here the schools never close unless there's a fire or a flood. No amount of snow/ice/cold/freezing rain will cause a snow day according to the policy. Yes, I know, the superindendent (or whoever rules the district) is crazy. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/dizzy2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":dizzy:">

My school district was like that. We couldn't get a day off unless the county called all the schools off. But being in a snow belt, we still got quite a few of those.

My work let us out a 3 today. Only 15 people showed up out of about 70. We are given the option to stay home and have two weeks to make up the time.
