Re : The Social Networking Snow Day
@mpardi949, technology is really shaping our lives in ways we never thought of before. Yes that is the inherent problem with information taken from social networking websites that we can never rely completely on that information. We have to wait for the official announcement. Social networking information is more like excitement exhausting platform. Official Facebook page for schools seem to be a workable option.

Re : The Social Networking Snow Day
I could only imagine the curiosity of kids about their next day J We experienced this curiosity much more than today's kids as our times were not equipped with such technology. We had to wait much longer with our hearts pounding with mixed feelings of hope and disappointment at the possible announcement of off or working day ahead.

Re: No snow days in California!
Drew, this story illistrates clearly how technology is impacting our everyday lives and in particular the education market.  The power of the sociai network to get the word out is cool - but what would be cooler is a sytem custom built for the school system to get the word out officially.  Should schools have a face book emergency page?  And sounds like the school could use a little more horsepower to suport surge in traffic (and why is the k-8 education industry typically slowest to adopt new tech??)  Hope the kids had a fun day!

No snow days in California!
Drew, I am completely jealous. We are drying up in California and SOOOO need rain days! :)

Growing up in NJ I remember 'delayed opening' days. Those were the worst!
