Snow Falls Rapidly in Canton

Storm comes just days after hurricane.

It began snowing steadily in Canton early Wednesday afternoon. Schools were released early and Chief Administrative Officer Robert Skinner said town crews were ready and on the road.

Some businesses closed or canceled classes Wednesday and emergency officials also responded to trouble spots as the evening wore on, including accidents or cars off the roadways, including on East Hill and Gracey Road. 

On Thursday morning, Superintendent of Schools Kevin Case announced a two-hour delay.

Snow falls at a rate of 1.5 to 1.9 miles per hour, depending on consistency (wet or dry). That's not very rapidly.

I'm interested in seeing how this will affect tomorrow and school attendance. Hopefully, we will be informed about a late opening or any other snow related schedule change.

I think the call would come in the morning Joe but I will also post it here if they announce anything.

Wow Jim that's one of those facts that you hang onto for a lifetime waiting to use, and you have one and only one chance to use it, you hit it out of the park buddy! Pilot or engineer?

Thanks, Chris, but I'm neither. Just interested in weather and have some books. In my next life I'm gonna be a meteorologist.
