snoWatch: Blizzard blues

Sorry for leaving you in the dark, Blazers - literally. With power out in many areas of Montgomery County, the "thundersnow" has left many of us (including yours truly!) without heat, TV, computer access and of course - snoWatch. But never fear! We're back with revised predictions for school this week (spoiler alert - there probably won't be much of it).

snoWatch: The quest for milk

The air is freezing cold, the wind is making my eyes water, the parking lot is full and the frigid atmosphere is suddenly pierced by a shriek of frustration. I have just walked out of my third grocery store of the day empty-handed, with no carton of milk in hand.

snoWatch: The snow just keeps coming

Well, here we are again, already writing another snoWatch column for you to enjoy. We're fresh off a snowy weekend - though we were hoping for a two-hour delay yesterday.

snoWatch: What the flurries?

It snowed on a Saturday. Nobody cares. In all seriousness, snow showers during the weekend only keep Blazers cooped up inside staring forlornly out the windows at the slick streets.

International leaders hold emergency snoWatch meeting

On Saturday morning at 6:37 a.m., Silver Chips Online's panel of snow experts* dragged themselves out of bed to attend an emergency meeting held in the nation's capital to calculate with their usual astonishing accuracy the probability of school delays and cancellations.

snoWatch: March rages in like a lion

A watched pot never boils, right? As soon as we considered our snow day prospects over, winter finally arrives, albeit fashionably late. Since Valentine's Day, we've shed our jackets for our windbreakers, we've again found our place in the Cold Stone line and we've started online window shopping for bathing suits (unless that's just us...). Heck, even spring sports tryouts began on Saturday. But not so fast, summer breeze: the Weather Channel predicts four to eight inches (not to be confused with 48 - that fast-talking meteorologist fooled us too) of snow overnight.

snoWatch: Wintry mixtape

What a way to start the semester! A chance to sleep in after staying up late to check out your new schedules on BILL and talk about how much homework you don't have. We left you all hanging last night (for the record, MCPS had no bold red banner up online, which totally threw us off). Then again, as MCPS students, we should have expected the unexpected.

snoWatch: Winter preview

"Nothing lasts forever," sang Guns 'n Roses, "even cold November rain." True enough. Today - Tuesday, Nov. 18, 2008 - midway through sixth period, the cold November rain that has darkened our moods for days ceased to make way for magic. Across the school, children huddled together against the windows to see it happen. At first, silence and disbelief; then, cheers and ecstasy.

snoWatch: Success at last?

Here at snoWatch, we have many talents - predicting the weather, being funny and juggling with swords, to name a few. But tonight we unearthed a new talent - number-crunching. (And that too without the help of our technical staff!)

snoWatch: What is love? Snow days, of course

Be still our hearts, it looks we've set a record - two days of mildly inclement weather in a row? Hopefully this Valentine's Day, we'll be showered with more than just gifts from our hearts' desires. After all, a day cuddled up in front of the fireplace with your significant other is a lot more romantic than - dare we say it - singing valentines and candy grams at school.
