I moved here over 3 months ago and I have to say that I am not happy with the way that they do things down here. I understand that it is a city in the mountains and that they're not used to the amount of snow that we get in my homestate of Michigan, but every time we get a fleck of snow, they close the schools. Now my daughter has to go to school on Saturday to make up for today.
The very first snow day wasn't snow at all, it was just really cold and it was a little frost outside. I don't like the fact that she has to go to school on the weekend because they have used way too many snow days already. Two weeks ago, we did have a lot of snow and I understand why the schools were closed, but most of the time they close the schools just because they can.

Cities that are not equipped with dealing with ice and snow would rather keep everyone safe than sending them all out into potentially dangerous situations. I'm from North Dakota, so I know cold, snow and ice. Drove in it, went to school in it and even played outside in it. But when we moved to Virginia and they were not equipped, I was more than happy keeping myself and kids home rather than going out and getting into a car accident with those that were not familiar with driving in those kind of elements.
