Another typical New England weather event. Easy does it.

If theres a parking ban until 12 and school starts at 10 that isn't going to work. The high school parking lot cant fit all the teachers half of them park on the street. Also students park on mass ave as well. Should have just called off school would save a lot of parents trouble. Half of the students wont even be there today. The heat is also broken at the high school so no one wants to be there

Swing and a miss. There will be storms and there won't be storms such as this last one. You need accurate forecasting. What 4-5 miles away there was 12-25 while the Arlington area was a dusting...Meghan tell the kids to take the bus. Callin off school Is a big inconvenience to everyone. I dont mean to be a dick, but how again is this a big problem.
