A day school leaders hate

It's after noon. Where's the snow?
It's too dry in the sky.
It's too warm for snow to drop.
Forecasters thought it would be colder. Not yet.
Albemarle County closed its schools for the day. You don't want to send kids to school and have them return on snowy roads before usual closing time.
Other area schools are closing early.
School leaders have a choice on days like this.
Be cautious, and kids might watch cold rain out the window.
Or send them to school, and risk a quick turn to cold weather.
Today, the weather has held off. For a while.
