State of Emergency!

What a joke!
I just happen to run into this information while looking for school closing information on a local news website.
They are not even announcing it on the news.

Apparently we are under a state of emergency- ironically most schools are only under a 2 hour delay- many are not even doing that- business as usual.
We only got about 6 inches of snow- this is hardly a state of emergency, or a reason to close schools.
Very disappointed in NY right now. This is a normal NY winter- just bc we haven't had one in a couple of years- everyone has to freak out.
Not to mention its February- we should be use to it by now- we've been dealing with it for 4 months.

Why do people freak about the weather? I can understand a blizzard, hurricane or even tornado, but a little snow that's stupid. Then of course there will be like a million accidents cause people will forget how to drive. Mayhem

I get it- but 6 inches is nothing here!

Of course it is the Friday before winter break- so they will probably close- extended vacation.

Psh. We've been under a couple now and we don't get anything.

I am north of Albany. By the sounds outside my window, it is a hot-ass mess out there. Can't wait to get on the road! Not!

The only state of emergency I remember getting as a kid is when we literally got 5 feet in a matter of hours. That what crazy!
