Have you ever stopped to consider what's going on behind the scenes of snow removal in your town?

A question about snow days

To the editor:

With the ninth snow day of the year, you have to wonder, what are the criteria for cancelling school buses? Evidence points to the following –
Buses are cancelled when:  there are more than five clouds in the sky;  the wind even hints at blowing from East to West; the wind even hints at blowing at all;  there is the suspicion of rain; snow accumulation is forecast to be more than 1 cm; the moon is waxing or waning; or when anyone on the Board has the sniffles.
By comparison, schools just across the Quebec border, such as Grenville Elementary and Laurentian Elementary in Lachute, have had one snow day and their buses navigate the lower Laurentians.

Quebecers are obviously made of sterner stuff.
