Below you will find an article I just read about PA adopting new regulations around snow days. This new legislation will allow school systems use technology to continue teaching on snow days and thus count the missed days toward the magic “180.” I am not sure how I feel about this concept, but I do know that even as an adult I love my snow days.

It is the reason “Stay-Cations” have become popular as well – they are really like planned snow days. How do you feel about this new legislation and the possibility of having no more snow days?
