New "Snow" in Augusta County

Schools closed on account of "Snow"
There was a dusting over here in the Eastern part of Augusta. Maybe there was more out West. Either way, they closed the schools today.
I wonder what that costs the county?
How many people still have to get paid, even though they didn't work?
How many people still have to be in the schools even though they are closed?

I wonder what the cost to families is?
How much is a day lost at work so you can watch your kids?
How much for Child Care?
I can understand when there is an actual reason to close the schools, but come on?
There was hardly a dusting this time.
Save the days for when there is a real snow.
Otherwise we will have more Headlines like this.
Fishy Mike has a new pic up that shows conditions here
