The coldest Virginia winter up until the 20th century was the winter of 1862-63.

And it still wasn't cold enough to get snow.

In January of 1863, a Union offensive was canceled due to the rain and mud.

Northern and Northwestern Virginia usually don't close unless it's 6 or more inches.

Richmond, however, will close if snowflakes touch the ground. I remember one time in high school, the school closed because of rain. Normal rain, not freezing rain or anything, just.... rain.

I like how nobody payed any attention to the original poster's problem at hand, and how this has turned into a conversation about the weather.

A day in high school was canceled because of rain for me. That was because the back of the school is on the levee, and the river is not even 50 feet from the school. There was a flood warning that day.

@ Toast.

WEll it seems the original Poaster himself has joined in the weather thread and partly made his own point moot...


@ OP....

You might wanna try cutting the Flame a lil' bit...
Specially since I'm getting a really odd picture when I add all **** up.. and If I think all those are the "F" words then OMG>....
Your grand-mom has a life... Mine just sits around alll day and night watching Crappy soaps.... And complains about how me and my sis does not seem to talk to her.. (P.S. Its not that we do try but whenever we do we seem to be interrupting her soaps.. She even watches the adds with rapt attention :geez: )


And also how come you guys got classes @ this time.. Don't you guys get Holidays because its Christmas Time????
Also I thought that over @ your place, the Semseter would End around Christmas time so wouldn't you guys Have End of Semseter break????

Agreed. Why do these big city/southern schools close down for a few inches of snow? It's not going to kill you you know.

Texan drivers have problems driving in normal conditions. You really want to add slippery roads to it?
