However, AU is not listed on the closings... Does this mean they're waiting to see if we still have a snow emergency tomorrow? Or does it mean it's understood that it's dumb to report closing if the whole county is down?



I find this amusing, too. The high is shown as 27 and low as 21. It is 15.



Here's a link to my local paper's story: Blizzard strikes county with massive amounts of snow. It has some conflicting pieces of information:




According to Madison County Emergency Management officials, 11 inches of snow fell by mid-afternoon and another three to five were expected by 1 a.m. today.



In 1906, 11 inches fell on the county during one 24-hour period. The blizzard has also been compared to winter storms in 1978 and 2004.



At 5:40 p.m., Brown reported that an Alexandria observer had recorded 13 inches had fallen. At 3 p.m., an Anderson resident reported 6.5 inches.




To put some perspective on these conflicts, Anderson and Alexandria are both in Madison County. As I said in a comment to orianaoracle, we had quite a bit of snow at my house at 9:00 A.M. this morning. It stopped falling in the afternoon for a while and then we had two or three hours of ice. In the evening, it became snow again.



So life is interesting. The screen doors have to be shoveled open, and dogs do not want to go outside. I really don't blame them. I'm still glad not to live in New York.

I don't know which county you're in, but if you're in one of the counties listed in your post, you definitely do NOT have classes tomorrow.
