Whoever is in charge of deciding to call a snow day or not should be hung, what an idiot. Seriously? half in of snow and you call a snow day? Silly New Mexicans! If Farmington ever got two feet over night you people would die in your homes.

I recalled working as a teacher in southern Utah where we had four feet of snow and still had school. One inch of snow in Farmington area we call it a Snow Day? Teachers drove over forty miles to work each day during that time. Even school buses continued. What whimps we have now!

The scools have allotted for 5 snow days, yesterday was just a good excuse.
Plus, the texting housewives and highschoolers make the morning comute risky even without the snow.

I wonder what all the posters would be saying if school hadn't been canceled and a bus was involved in an accident in which students were hurt. If only one of you blockheads would volunteer your expert service of being able to predict when the snow would stop - then the districts of NW New Mexico wouldn't have to send out employees to check the road conditions at 5:00 A.M. Absolutely I would rather err on the side of caution. Wake up - it's about safety!

I guess none of you remember what it was like to be young, and hope for a snow day. Please keep in mind that it's not just about one inch of snow on the road. I believe it is also about how cold it is for those kids who have to stand outside at the bus stop, or walk to school. Personally it scares the heck out of me to drive around San Juan County in good weather, with all the drunks and idiots. I would rather they closed school then send my children out into that mess. You claim how stupid it was for them to close school, yet they had over 10 accidents that day. Was there enough snow or ice to warrent 10 accidents - NO but people are idiots and don't know enough to slow down and be careful. I'll keep my kids home instead of sending them out to stand on the side of the road waiting for a bus, when one of those 10 accidents plows them over and kills them. Just think about others for a change.

I guess it was not a snow day, but an ignorant, low rent, low IQ stay off the road day.
