If you are like me, you are on the air doing school closings for 12 hours, and dreaming about food, since you cant actually get outside the studio..

And for the record, you start to hallucinate and see things you never watching the "Weakest Link" on GSN and thinking, "Man, that Anne Robinson is one hot number..." (Thank you, I didnt get that low....*cough* *cough*).

Why do radio (and TV) stations insisit on running thru the huge list? Wouldn't be a lot easier to to list the few schools are open, or just say all schools in the listening area are closed?

Good point Chris. I will take a note from aharris and say that shopping for online food is a hit.

Cup of snow + Banana + Milk + Orange Juice = One mean smoothy.
'Course it only works if you live in an area that isn't one of the most polluted counties in Ohio.

Chris --

For the most part, schools are really quite easy if they just close. If all the schools in a district close, makes my job extremely easy to just name the district and close, but unfortunetly, schools and churches (ESPECIALLY Churches) have so many damn special programs, services, clubs., etc, that it makes it a necessity to list them all.

What also makes it difficult is that some school prinicpals, church leaders dont decide till the last minute, meaning you could list every single school in the district closing, but one school will wait till after MIDNIGHT (true story) to decide.

Seriously, start praying for 50 degree weather!! I need fresh air and some food...

He he he.....I just got back from CA. On the day of this Ping, I drove into the Anza Borrego Desert and took pictures of cool rock formations and plants, not to mention a cloud that looked like a space ship. It was 73 in the desert.

I was nearly in tears as I looked out the window of the airport in San Diego, not wanting to leave :o(.

It took only a half hour to dig the car out at the airport, but other people, depending on where they parked and where plowing was shoddy, will have a miserable time getting their cars out.

I cannot even believe the piles of snow on my front yard....if I were 12, I would dig a tunnel thru the pile that's taller than I am.

Catch up on reading the David Duke web page while, no kidding, the local radio station plays Die Meistersinger. This is not a joke.
