    It's Ok with me if it happens then as I don't have to go anywhere. I don't want it Tuesday morning though - or if it does snow it needs to be really deep.

    According to our forecast it'll be slush.

    Nothing to get hopeful about.

    Ah, brilliant, I hadn't heard that.
    Normally I enjoy snow days, but I really really hope it's a snow day this Wednesday, because Magnus Carlsen and Viswanathan Anand are making a special guest visit to our local Town Hall, and if our school is closed I can go and see them, if only in the entrance hall to catch the radio interview .
    That's the absolute best thing about cold snow days-chess nuts boasting in an open foyer.

    I was promised the Beast mark two and ask we've got are blue skies and bright sunshine.

    I am in Bucharest. We have had freezing rain/sleet over the past few days and it looks absolutely amazing - everything is encased in ice. Some trees have fallen under the weight of the ice.

    We were closed on Thursday due to a gas leak so I think my share of luck had been used up.

    The online bit of the Cambridge News has been promising "heavy snow next week" since November. I expect they'll be pleased to be right for once.

    We got closed by a dead rat in the water tank once but only after the doctor husband of a pregnant teacher complained that we were still open.

    My old school was closed by a bomb threat once. Staff had to go in and see if we could see one!
