It's interesting to see my county as one of the "any snow" ones. I still fondly (and I use that term loosely) remember the time snow started falling early in the day, and the school board assumed it wouldn't amount to anything. My 5th grade class patiently sat and watched PBS. Every half hour the teacher would send a lucky kid out with a ruler, and we tracked the accumulation on the blackboard.
When the buses finally started taking us the roads were covered. We spent several hours on the bus, and many of us had to walk a pretty good distance home because there was no way the driver could get up the hills.
The bus driver took down the home number of every one of us as we got off the bus, and when she got home, which was after ten o'clock, called every parent to make sure we made it home. If there's an award for dedicated bus drivers she earned it.
