    I guess I don't understand Lexus' point. How do teachers have any say as to whether schools are closed or not?

    Oh, cut it out, Lexus! This decision is about the safety of the KIDS, not the extra days off!

    Any opportunity to take a shot at Madison teachers, huh? Pathetic. Maybe you'd rather risk a 6 year old getting frostbite in a matter of a very few minutes? Idiot.
